    I have been working at Hearst full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, established local brand

    Cons

    Seriously lacking in the fundamentals. No sales/media training for employees. Leadership lacks strategic vision. No consideration of clients needs and wants. 80s mentality to sales and closing new business.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, create a product that really works for merchants, provide merchants with testimonials/information about success stories, market your product/services. Horror stories of massive turn over -- hoping reps would build business in one month. Brutal...

    Pros

    autonomy and creativity, access to people and information, smart staff and good publications, at the fore in terms of today's trends.

    Cons

    no investment in staff by company, management defeated by staff cuts and content standards. No support when it comes to moving around within the company

    Advice to Management

    Go to bat for the people pulling the oar.
