Pros

Not much pros at all other than it's not stressful other than worrying about your job. They do give you time off very easily..

Cons

Because of the state of the company there's no real opportunity for growth. From a business standpoint they believe they can cut their way to profitability but it's not going to work.

Advice to Management

Management should make some personal sacrifices themselves and pay their employees better and not run off the best talent. Seems there is a real talent drain and those that remain aren't competent to find a new job.

    Pros

    It's located downtown Dallas right next to the Dart (Train) Station
    Parking is Cheap at employee lot
    They people who work there are awesome
    Its a recognized company name

    Cons

    The newspaper advertising industry is declining & sales goals keep getting higher.
    Your goals are based on your previous quarters performance, so if you exceed your goal, your goal is higher the next quarter, thus helping those who don't make goal make more money.
    Company focuses more on Salesforce.com usage then actual sales
    You have homework assignments to turn in
    They advocate that they are the #1 media source in North Texas but churn is over 80%
    Every clients gets quoted 10 different prices for the same ad

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE stop using third party companies who works out of their grandmothers basement. Stop throwing S**t on the wall hoping it will stick. Launching 25 new products in the last 3yrs and only 3 are still around, ready to launch 25 more. PLEASE make an informed decision. Lastly, It's amazing how you lay off employees daily but from 2009 to 2011 your salaries tripled?
