Pros

The structure imposed with guarantee that you become disciplined about use of time.

Cons

Micromangement eliminates the drive for creativity and creates an environment of fear. This market has been operating in the red for many years. Management just decided to pay attention to the market, and now a swat team guards every decision. The local staff does not operate as a team because every move is watched by upper management. The goal becomes producing reports that are attractive rather than actually DOING a good job.

Advice to Management

A staff that operates under too much fear and pressure cannot perform; non performance becomes a habit. Look for ways to celebrate small successes daily. Success will breed success. The local market manager is too busy keeping corporate off his back to be available to help the sales staff grow the opportunity. If corporate insists on managing the market, then show up in the market and learn the local reality rather than managing from the other end of the phone.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    With hard work you can make lots of money. There are some very nice people that work there and did I mention you can make lots of money?

    Cons

    They are Not community oriented. Almost all of the programming is national. They don't use ratings. There is no moral compass. People talk behind everyones backs. The managers play favorites. Too many reports. No time for Family. They expect you to do other peoples jobs due to the fact that they let so many people go that there isn't enough people to get the job done. Managers talk down to people. Extremely High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with the same respect. Stop playing favorites. Don't change the rules everytime it suits you. Most of all bring back much more local programming


  2. "Positive experience"
