Growing Digital Firm

Advertising Sales (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Direct Agents full-time for more than a year

ProsAs a sales person, I was looking for a company that would support me through the initial growing pains that come with starting a new position. I have been lucky to work with a manager that is willing to commit the time to help me build my book of business. I have already been promoted and will soon be building out my own sales team.

I am proud of the work I have done here, and am looking at a bright future

ConsLike other sales positions, it is a work hard mentality. You have to be ready to hit the ground running.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to learn and grow as a group. Continued communication between departments

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
