    I have been working at Lamar Advertising full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company feel in a large company.

    Cons

    Salary is a bit low as compared to other companies, but the small company/family feel helps to make up for it.

    Pros

    The training is thorough and easy to understand. The process really does work and your potential for success is huge. The management staff is friendly and extremely helpful. There are opportunities to move up, but you have to prove you deserve a promotion.

    Cons

    The only con I would say is that you typically have a tough time having a great year two times in a row. Your budget is based off of your actual numbers. It can be difficult to maintain your commission percentage after a great year.

    I have been working at Lamar Advertising full-time

    Pros

    Been with Lamar for several years. It's a great company. Nationwide but still feels like a close family. Best place I've ever worked

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative to say. There are a few quirks, but nothing different than what you see in every other office.
