    Approves of CEO

    I worked at ABC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Disneyland admission, free movies (if you respond to the email about tickets quickly), pilot screenings, working on the Disney lot, benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of respect from management and archaic processes (paper distribution and old proprietary software).

    Advice to Management

    Create more roles between assistant and manager/director. A lot of talented people are leaving because there aren't any roles for them to advance into.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ABC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility, for the most part make your own schedule, GREAT benefits, get 5 weeks off a year since being there 9+ Years, extremely challenging which make days fly by, no salary cap so skies the limit, tons of tax write offs, not selling a penny saver magazine as your product reaches every single person in your DMA, you work for most powerful form of advertising possible

    Cons

    EXTREME PRESSURE, SUPER fast paced, millions of details to stay on top of, job never ends and VERY hard to not take home with you, who you work for management wise makes all the difference in the world as far as day to day (luckily I enjoy who I work for), hard deadlines every day, industry is ALWAYS evolving, 100 per cent commission, if you're not thick skinned DON'T get in it!

    Advice to Management

    You can't treat an employee with one years experience the same as you do with someone with 20+ years sales and management experience.
