    I worked at CBS Radio (More than a year)

    Pros

    For any recent graduate who wants to get into media sales and work hard (I mean work hard) perfect company to start you career with. However make sure you keep eye on the ball, sale, sale, sale.

    Cons

    If you survive CBS Radio sales as a rookie there isn't much you wont survive. You will be treated like nothing, or worse, it is the most chaotic place you could possibly work for, no training, but if you make it there you will make it everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around comes around. Dan Mason is no longer the CEO of CBS Radio Please update your information.
