I worked at Lamar Advertising full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Part Salary/Part Comission, Great benefits, comission structure works well if you have encouraging management. Loved the company, wish I could have been trained under someone different, I think I would probably still be there if I had been.

Cons

Management drove me away, there was yelling and disrespect in my local office from the management.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to which Lamar Plants are losing customers quickly, there might be a management problem at the local level.

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

    Pros

    Though the company is rather large it still has a small company feel. You are pretty much left alone to do your job with the exception of mandatory reports (And there are lots of them)

    Cons

    The Account Managers have little to no experience in this industry making it very difficult! Frequent turn-over means everyones still learning the ropes. Compensation overall is not very good here and if you're not in sales then there isn't a clearly defined career or growth path!

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the experienced Account Managers to train and nourish the development of the newer, often cluesless Account Managers
