    Pros

    Interacting and working with other representatives on the job. Receiving vacation and sick time benefits.

    Cons

    Listening to disgruntled customers all week long and being strapped to a head set are two examples of negative detractors that make the job less rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Re-vamp the scorecard and metrics used to measure performance.

    Pros

    Good area in the city, lots to do after work. I guess what was nice about it was how they kept good track of overtime working hours.

    Cons

    I would say the difficult thing about this company is that it is getting sort of out-of-trendy. It would be nice to see more innovation so if you are looking for an innovative company, this one is not for you.

    Pros

    Fair compensation. Great work hours.

    Cons

    Retirement plans have gotten stingy. Recently had to layoff 20% of employee base, to avoid takeover. So not too stable, anymore. Very hard to move up, veterans never leave and when they do, positions are done away with.

    Advice to Management

    Took too long to figure out multi device digital distribution, Content is not innovative, still resting on the laurels from hits of 20 years ago.

    Pros

    Excellent professional experience for the time I was involved in the business.

    Cons

    Slow to see around the corner and to make the hard moves to change.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment that supports fast failures and innovation. Media has to move at the speed of consumers and that's now accelerated to real time.

  11. A good place to work
