    Pros

    My favorite things about working as a Promotion assistant are the perks. You get access to lots of concerts and fun events and opportunities to meet so many people.

    Cons

    The pay isn't very high it's more of a entry level job preferably for college students in college graduates, seems like a high turn around.

    Advice to Management

    Being that this is a entry level job are part time there are not any advancement opportunities for management. It's really just a good way to gain opportunity.

    Pros

    The good thing about working here is the promotions experience, there are so many great opportunities for growth, lots of fun at most of the events and you meet some pretty cool people as a promotions assistant.

    Cons

    You work pretty hard at the events, the schedule changes weekly but they are flexible if you have another job, there aren't many hours here and you don't get paid much as a promotions assistant.

    Pros

    Perks- free concert tickets sometimes.
    Not a boring job. You're working fun events.
    It's basically a customer service job. But your interaction with the public is 98% positive, which is great.
    Great environment to work in. Everyone has the same passion to work in Entertainment. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    PAY IS HORRIBLE!
    There are very slim-to-none opportunities to grow within the company.. what I've learned is: It's not WHAT you know, but WHO you know. and that person you know better be very influential within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    To management and Corporate, You expect a lot from your employees but don't want to pay them a decent wage. Great productivity and amazing results wont happen until you respect your staff with good benefits.

    Pros

    The job is never boring and allows you to be the marketing consulting for many different companies in many different industries.

    Cons

    The company lacks in good company culture. It feels like the managers do not care about their employees. There is minimal training provided and no set procedure for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more energy into growing your sales people and teaching them more about the industry and less on how to make a cold call.

    Pros

    Good starting pay, big name recognition, great major market experience and exposure if that's what you want.Certain benefits apply through the Writer's Guild and CBS if you work there long enough.

    Cons

    Toxic workplace culture, management turns a blind eye to bullying and harassment. No work/life balance, especially for freelancers. Half the staff is part-time and often forced to work more than six or seven days in a row; good luck trying to ask for time off. Schedule changes at a moment's notice with little to no warning. No opportunity for advancement . Morale is understandably very low.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to treat your employees like people. Don't run an operation where co-workers are railroaded and forced to turn on each other. Replace your morning drive anchors ASAP.

    Pros

    Great work with interesting people. Fast-paced work environment that's never boring. Opportunities to do cool things like attend free concerts and sporting events.

    Cons

    Hope you like those cool things though, because your paycheck will not be among them, and you will be stuck in one spot for years with no career path.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent you have and don't let it languish in obscurity.
