    Pros

    The company is constantly acquiring small cable companies.

    Cons

    Everything. Worst place I've ever worked. Constant turnover. Managers overwhelmed and some should never be in management. Lots of stress for little money. Don't wast your time

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to an outfit that can run it right. You over paid managers are so busy playing golf and patting each other on the back that you ignore how bad it is.


  6. Cash poor and unethical company!

    Pros

    It appears that most sales offices allow account executives to work from home.

    Cons

    Bait and switch sales people to get you in the door. Absolutely terrible insurance coverage basic PPO only covers 40% and cost over $750 for family. No client meal or entertainment reimbursement. Zero gas reimbursement. Zero matching on 401k The marketing department is a joke the proposals look foolish compared to the competition. Extremely weak penetration in every market that we have contacts in. Truly a 3rd tier provider in most markets. Unethical notary practices on invoices. No perks come with Viamedia that you would get working for an actual media outlet. Constantly trying to pull fast ones when it comes to commission amounts. I owned a private equity firm that is extremely cheap and ruthless. If you've got any kind of media sales experience I can almost most guarantee you that you will better off at most any other media sales outlet. Don't buy into any of that fake reviews on here. I work at the company for a few years in there are very few happy sales reps here. You've been warned!

    Pros

    Challenging yet compelling/rewarding to help local businesses grow and succeed. Getting involved in the production process is also a plus

    Cons

    Depending on the production house that you use it can be difficult to get timely revisions and meet deadlines which can eventually cost you business

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and connect with the local account executives as they are the ones on the front lines making the most valuable contribution to the company and influencing revenue

    Viamedia is a company that offers training and support for those that are not sure of the field; rewards are offered for various levels of accomplishments; excellent tech support

    Lack of clarity in goals and expectations as based on different products...cable vs digital; Too many changes on what is expected from review to review; allow salespeople to sell.

    when goals are set be sure expectations are clear to all.

    Pros

    Great office culture, company invests a lot of money and time on sales training. A lot of enthusiasms from people who care about the company.

    Cons

    Unless you are hired as an account executive or manager, don't expect any recognition or much opportunity for advancement. Lots of redundant reporting and obsolete attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    More diversity in management, better communication and a wider berth of opportunities would go a long way toward making an OK company great.
