    Pros

    Large and established company. Room for growth and movement. Lots of training to give you tools to succeed. You feel proud to be part of the massive CBS brand.

    Cons

    Work/life balance does not exist. 10-12 hour workdays not uncommon. Although lunch breaks are allowed, the culture does not promote them. Account services is not a respected part of the group. Most days are incredibly busy. Hard work is undervalued on the account services team. The stars are on the sales team.

    Advice to Management

    You're making money so keep doing what you are doing. Employees will step up.
