    Pros

    The best people in the world to work with and to work for!! They truly care about all of their employees!

    Cons

    It is hard work... not for lazy people and certainly not for whiney people who cannot accept rejection. Every sales job has rejection... in sales... your job begins when they say no! You can't be a baby....

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.... thank you.....

    I have been working at Multimedia Sales & Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    401k match
    Life ins, health ins, vision and dental
    vacation pay

    Cons

    Horrible pay. They do not tell you when you have cancellations - they take forever to confirm. this is a base VERSUS commission. So yes, you can get a 200 check after working 80hrs. DO NOT WORK HERE! HORRIBLE

    Advice to Management

    Do not hound people to put money on the board after putting in 8-9hrs with no lunch. That is NOT management or even micro-management. Treat people better, have real sales meetings and maybe you will get a better outcome. HR should be happy SALES pays their salaries.

    Pros

    MSM has a top notch customer service department with an almost perfect collection rate. This means you get paid on all of your sales as opposed to some other companies in the radio time field who have low collections and high cancellation rates. They offer good commissions versus hourly whichever is greater so you will be compensated for your time. amazing dental and vision insurance, good health coverage, 401k with a small match. The company has been in business for a long time so you can think long term with your earnings here.

    Cons

    You need to work hard and make alot of phone calls to be successful. If you are a low motor person you will struggle to make good money. It's really only a con if you are a lazy person.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I would say the management team is positive here and the company has done well for a long time. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great income, flexible hours, benefits, professional atmosphere with great leadership. MSM is a destination not just a layover for the next flight.

    Cons

    At times it can be a very challenging sales position factoring in that you start off cold calling but the positive is that at the same time you are building up your data base and all leads are provided.

    Advice to Management

    You sometimes are too nice and need to be a little more forceful to keep us in line

    Very relaxed environment. Young and friendly management and staff. Everyone is willing to help you learn and succeed. I like that I'm getting helpful safety messages out to communities around the country. I like that I'm building my own database of accounts.

    Cons

    You have to work hard and make a lot of phone calls.

    Advice to Management

    You can never have too much training.

    I worked at Multimedia Sales & Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers a very flexible work schedule. It has an extremely casual dress code, if any really existed. There is free coffee to keep you stimulated and every now and then a free lunch was provided to help keep up the employee spirits. Games and promotions were offered to motivate throughout the month to encourage employees to sell.

    Cons

    The employees were very vulgar. Swearing was the norm for carrying on a conversation. Pay was straight commission after a few weeks; no sales equals no pay.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some base pay to offer an income.
