    Great way to learn sales, but don't count on much support.

    I worked at For Rent Media Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Executives are extremely smart and drive the company forward. The products are easy to sell and desirable to the target audience. The pay was actually pretty good. It's a young, fun company overall. Chance to develop great relationships with clients.

    Cons

    Middle management (GSMs, Regionals) have no vision and less accountability. They will exploit the sales reps any chance they get and provide virtually no support. It sounds like I have an ax to grind, but I really don't. If you are a talented sales person you will do well despite the management issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives should continue innovating. It's the reason they've been successful. Middle management should focus on sales enablement and less on self-aggrandizement; sales reps are the reason you have jobs.

    I have been working at For Rent Media Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good products to sell and perks like sales contests to earn bonuses and vacations

    Cons

    Due to all of the admin work like writing agreements, building websites, taking photos and making changes to websites when needed, sending ad proofs to every print client for copy changes every 4 weeks, and meeting with 40 clients to service account every month, only about 20% of time is left to actually sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a customer service team to build listings and an email address for them to make changes to listings. Have media kits printed and prepared so AE can grab them after meeting as opposed to printing our own using little printers from work that take forever. Have a photographer to take better pics which the comps do. It will also help lthem get better leads Hire managers that have more sales experience and if they never managed before, they really need to be trained on how to handle all of the different personalities
