    I have been working at Sinclair Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Lots of support for training when first entering the television media industry, has immense amount of products and resources to sell and make available for local businesses to advertise on a large scale.

    Cons

    Not many. Sales is hard work at any company. Need to be prepared for the rejection and work that comes with handling all your own accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Training is key. Employees are set up to fail if they don't have the right amount of support to begin learning right off the bat.
