Pros

Midsize stations in many locations. Lots of opportunity for advancement for those that want to move up within the company. Decent benefits, good base for AE's to get started before they switch over to 100% commission. The company is embracing multi platform selling and non traditional avenues of income. Very strong digital presence. Commissions are good.

Cons

Because they are really good in certain markets the air time is bought up by national accounts. Can be difficult to get new local business on due to high rates, makes it hard for small businesses to afford. They do not have stations in large markets.

Advice to Management

As in most companies, lots of different personalities in management. Communication can get muddled at times (different signals). Overall a good company to work for if you are willing to work hard.

    Pros

    The people are great. You become like a little family. When you're a college graduate living on the poverty line you have no choice but to grow close to people...you may need a meal.

    Cons

    No money. No real support. Very Corporate. No MONEY. You will not get paid what you're worth but you will get worked to death.

    Advice to Management

    get a grip! Stop being so stingy with money. It's sad your reporters are considering applying for food stamps!

    Pros

    Raycom Media is a recognized in television industry and own 35+ stations in the Eastern part of the United States of America.

    Cons

    It depends on the station and the management; comission structures can change at any time; expect to work a minimum of 60 hours a week if you want to make any money and cover your draw.
