    Pros

    Learned a lot from senior management on my accounts. Great environment, enjoyed going to work. Made some awesome friends.

    Cons

    Responsibilities arent exactly clear when it comes to Assistant vs Planner. In applying for new jobs found this to be an issue as an Assistant I was too experienced for some positions but not ready to be a Planner at some agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nada... you closed.

    I have been working at KSL Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people were nice as were the offices. At first it was a first run operation -with constant training and new innovative ideas. The original media director was first rate - and very knowledgable.

    Cons

    It was unorganized - and accounts came and went and no one was notified. No promotions in the Local Broadcast Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest.

    -Less focus needs to be given to new business when current accounts need a lot of help
    -Make sure you lower level employees aren't "drowning." A better work/life balance will make them better employees in the end
    -It is ok to say no to a client sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to get back involved like he was three years ago. He needs to take a good hard look at who he has working for him and clean house.
