    I have been working at Lamar Advertising full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lamar Outdoor is a great place to work. The work/life balance is incredible. Collaboration between corporate and the individual plants couldn't be better. It's a fun and innovative industry and I'm proud to be a part of it. If you work hard and put in the effort, the sky is the limit. Great benefits as well.

    Cons

    New hardware/software roll-outs could happen at less busy times of the year, but it's manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, some good people to work with most of the time

    Cons

    Doesn't pay very well. Everyone gets the same raise even if you sit on your butt or work you tail off. No incentive to go above and beyond or take on more responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people for strong work ethic and hard work. Like to hold employees back for what they want them to do. Pay your people for the qualifications they get. Train people to get to the next level of their career.

    Pros

    flexable hours, good product, some good employees to work with.

    Cons

    low commission percentage little to no appreciation shown always wanting more, never good enough.

    Advice to Management

    show more appreciation, pay more attention to the visual ability of the static inventory. Not enough money put toward cutting, maintaining tree issues, and being proactive to keep the product with a great visual image. More concerned with the digital inventory.

    Pros

    Having a job, personable coach/sales manager and being employed

    Cons

    Too afraid of ramifications of posting anything further, there will be some level of indirect investigation to punish the people who speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with dignity. Money is not a motivator, look into how to lead and motivate people.
