    I worked at NCC Media (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning experience, sales manager one of the best I have worked with. An excellent first job for someone in media as you get to work with everyone - buyers, planners, sales reps and managers at cable systems. After leaving used things i learned at Dallas office in my current job.

    Cons

    Software could have been purchased from outside companies (as the owners Comcast, Cox and Spectrum already do) instead of trying to make their own - make-good software inferior to broadcast, at my time of employment overtime was rarely allowed while the workload was more than anyone could handle in 8 hours. Not sure how to go from SC to AE or another position without leaving company.

    Advice to Management

    Give options to move forward in company, there are not enough AE positions for every coordinator to move into that role. Have managers spend some time in the jobs below them, like sales coordinator as that is the best way to understand what an SC goes through. There are people in DFW who are either qualified or trainable that could make a diverse group of employees.

    Pros

    This is the best company I have worked for. The office is considered by many to be the best office in the country. It is unfortunate that some on here make up lies instead of actually working.

    Cons

    High volume, but that can be considered a good thing in sales. (lots of opportunities and products to sell)

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing better technology and platforms in digital & programmatic.
