Pros: good corporate parent, exceptional sales training, good it support
Cons: the share of market in print and digital advertising is shrinking rapidly, little growth opportunity
This company is going through some serious growing pains in moving out of the 80's or "the way we have always done it". They have a new and highly qualified Publisher (senior manager) who is having to unravel and re-format processes, and harness technology to do more for productivity. The distribution of the major categories is not equitable for the sales team; one does very well and the others struggle. The hardest part of the job is finding viable customer candidates in secondary business categories. Individually, nearly everybody there is a "good person", but a long-time manager creates chaos simply to try to create an appearance of being "vital" to the company.
