Current Employee - Online Campaign Coordinator in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Online Campaign Coordinator in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Belo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of very friendly people willing to show you the ropes and teach the nuts and bolts or marketing, the online sales side in particular. Fairly progressive and accommodating as a department,

Cons

The TV side of sales is fraught with politics and very grinding busy work. The structure is very conservative and it is almost impossible to advance if you do not want to cold call your life away.

Advice to Management

Make a bigger effort to develop your employees and make an investment in them to grow in the company and increase the retention rate.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    PTO program allows for adequate time off. Producers are paid time and a half for overtime.

    Cons

    very little room for development. Does not make diversity a priority in hiring... especially on the management level.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more development programs and mentoring across affiliates. Consider that every person good in one field... may not make a great manager


  2. "Most of my nearly 12 years spent at the company were positive. Lots of room to grow, great product, excellent training."
