    I have been working at CBS Television Stations full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great upper management. Sales team are built of strong individuals and are like a family. Offices are run with a "just get your job done" attitude - not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Slow to keep up with changing landscape. Not many other cons. CBS is a great place to work and always takes good care of its people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and employing great people

    Excellent product with good sales tools.

    I worked at CBS Television Stations full-time

    Pros

    CBS is a company with deep horizontal and vertical divisions and opportunities. Unlike competitors, CBS is poised for entertainment and content, regardless of how its consumed on what screen or when. Working in almost any local or national broadcast sales business is a fast paced, adrenaline junky's dream. Traditionally, most management groups allow you to build your own business, support your success and offer attractive benefits.

    Cons

    The down-side of working with an intangible job of selling advertising or managing a team that does, is that when the economy takes a dive, your services ride down and hard just as deep as when once riding high. It's a very competitive business, and the profession has many pitfalls.

    I worked at CBS Television Stations full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    CBS was a very good company to work for. Very good about promoting from within, great benefits, and compensation. Local television is a difficult industry, but CBS was the one of the best places to be.

    Cons

    A lot of corporate oversight. Usually not too onerous, but occasionally a lot of work to accommodate. Industry pressure necessitates cost containment which is always a challenge to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what they're doing. It's a really difficult time for the industry, but CBS was reacting well and looking forward effectively. Local management in my market was outstanding.
