    I worked at Lamar Advertising full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and research information provided from corporate to help sell. Training was amazing.

    Cons

    Each office is run independently, there is no accountability for GM'S and they are protected. There is a reason you have high turnover in some of these offices.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee complains, take it seriously. District managers should be more involved with local offices.

    Pros

    The manager leaves you to make your own decisions and gives you a lot of space to work as you so choose. Schedule is flexible. You recieve decent pay as a new hire.

    Cons

    Manager tends to micro manage when he feels like it. Really pushes his ideas on how to do things no matter how dated they are. No room for growth or increase of pay due to short chain of command. Asked for more help in a bigger market and they finally hired someone 8 months later.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more growth within positions. Respond to needs of the market and employees sooner and do not drag your feet on decisions. Be quicker in your responses for possible solutions to job opportunities.
