    Pros

    Very employee focused. Dedicated to providing resources for the salesforce to have success. They take a strong interest in me as a person, not just a revenue source. It seems like a company that has high moral character. Greg Brown is a tremendous leader and does a phenomenal job in the CEO role. He is also extremely approachable. It is an extremely innovative company that is always looking around the corner at what is next. It's an organization who's C-Suite leadership isn't afraid to occasionally laugh at itself and that trickles down throughout the company. Their mantra is Grow the Business, Build the Team and Have Fun and all of those, I feel are right on the money with the culture of Learfield.

    Cons

    With some departments that provide sales help, the departments are so big that you lose track of who you are dealing with. At times, there does to be a "one size fits all" sales strategy, which doesn't necessarily work at different properties in different regions of the country.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, everyone. Also, continue to actively seek out a way to diversify the organization...that is something you already do very well, but shouldn't let off the gas pedal at all.
