    Pros

    Constantly learning about emergence of new media. Excellent training in sales and management skills.
    Perks often include concerts, charitable and sporting events. Staff is very helpful to new employees.

    Ability to create a work life balance is often compromised. A lot of programs to sell, projects to fulfill and events to staff. Corporate dictates are often pushed down and little local autonomy prevails.

    Pros

    Perks are endless between concert tickets, great employees, good management. There's never a dull moment and overall the company tries to include employees w/ promotions

    Cons

    Sometimes you can feel like just a "number", and it seems hard to advance within the company unless you are close with management. Also, be prepared to not work a 9-5 schedule. Hours can be at different times.
