Pros

Free cubs tickets every once in a while (since they have the same owners). Their services are easy to sell as it is easy becoming more popular to place employment advertising online as opposed to the newspaper.

Cons

The job is very, very boring. You sit in a cubicle all day and talk to people on the phone all day. The only relief comes when you have a client base after a few months and you can spend a little more time posting their advertisements on the website. Other than that, the job is pure monotany.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't make the meetings so boring.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and great experience selling to C level executives. The salary was just above average but definitely not bad. Work with quite a few people in the same age bracket but definitely not in experience levels.

    Cons

    Commission structure was horrible...if you sold an account and then 3-4 months later that account couldn't pay their bills anymore it not only set your commissions back but you then had to make up for that account times 2 in order to stay on plan for the year.

    Management doesn't look at the big picture when it comes time to advancement opportunities...it's strictly a numbers game with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    QUIT Shuffling good people around!

    Pros

    Flexible everything. Hours, pay, benefits, work from home, vacations, dress code. Everything. The people here are great and everyone gets along really well. I hope to work here for a long time. Its really fun to work for a company that has super bowl advertisements, and even better to work for one that is at the top of its industry.

    Cons

    The flexibility leads to a lack of accountability late in the day and early in the morning. The economy stinks right now so this industry is getting killed due to the lack of jobs available for people to apply for on the site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give basic hour guidelines, be sure to be in by 9am, stay until 3pm, etc.
