Digital advertising Account Manager

Digital Advertising Account Management (Former Employee)
Irving, TX

ProsGreat people. Great projects. Amazing benefits. $0.00 copay on doctor visits or any kind of medical procedures. Women get 6 weeks of maternity leave. Plus 3 weeks vacation. Digital advertising sales was awesome. MS had great sales support, excellent resources, and always had enough of a budget to do the things we needed to do, e.g., travel, entertain, business needs, etc. Every other company I worked for has had such tight budgets; it seems like I'm always struggling to get the help I need.

ConsIn the Dallas office, career advancement is limited because the majority of our operations were either out of New York or Redmond. If you're willing to move though, career advancement is nearly unlimited. MS is really good about not limiting you to functional silos. In their view, good talent is good talent and can be used in many different departments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
