I LOVE MY JOB!
Multi Media Consultant (Current Employee), Beaumont TXOctober 2, 2014
I found a great fit when I got hired at Beaumont Enterprise.
Management could not be more helpful, caring and understanding.
This is a demanding position that is full of rewards on a daily basis.
My direct supervisor is very knowledgeable and passes her knowledge on to us. I am so glad we stole her from Florida.

The most enjoyment i've had in a job in a long time...maybe ever!
Multi Media Consultant (Current Employee), Beaumont, TXSeptember 24, 2014
Just like any company, there are growing pains as new technologies and products arrive in the marketplace. But, one thing I have been most impressed with is that the management team is well seasoned, knows the ins and outs of these new products and is willing to train and mentor to the team members to bring them up to speed and become experts at their – more... responsibilities. Is it a bit fast paced at times trying to adapt to changes and such? Sure. But where is it not? At least no one turns their back and everyone is more than willing to help with whatever training and leadership is necessary to accomplish the overall goals. – less

Start Up Feel With Too Many Mistakes
Account Executive (Former Employee), HearstJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great comp plan, flexible schedule, strong footprint within the community
Cons: internal process stinks, training is weak in terms of selling, management are great people but lack leadership that is needed to succeed
The job can be a very lucrative compensation if done correctly. There isn't a sales job I know that compensates at a higher level, however, the internal process has diminished as they have continued to implement additional steps and more of a burden on the clients, making the clients and your life harder and more of a pain.

Business in transition
Sales (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJuly 20, 2014
Below-market compensation. Anxious work environment with revolving door executive team. Trying to reinvent themselves in light of declining print and online display advertising business. But they are remodeling.

Long hours, horrible culture
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 17, 2014
Every week it seems someone else is jumping ship. Morale is super low and most are overwork and underpaid with no regard to work/life balance. No company culture or employee engagement.

Great environment for sales
Digital Marketing Consultant (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCJuly 15, 2014
Pros: management, commision rates, co-workers
Cons: stress (but hey, it's sales)
Hearst and LocalEdge are both great companies with amazing leadership. This has been my first B2B sales position and I personally believe I have gained a breadth of information in both small business management, digital marketing and successful advertising campaigns as a whole.

Ad Sales & Marketing Intern (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 8, 2014
Rather than using your creativity, you tend to learn more about business. Great co-workers but does not have as much opportunities for interns to learn.

Not A Good Place To Work
Media Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 10, 2014
Pros: good base salary
Cons: chargebacks and commission structure keep you from making more than base salary
The Digital Media Sales division is a mess. The training is haphazard and they structured the commission plan so it is hard to make any money. Between the chargebacks and the commission plan you basically live on your base salary because they have a 50 percent cancelllation rate. Once the customer cancels, you get a chargeback on your commissions.

They – more... are constantly changing sales methods and micro managing with out any positive support. That is why there is such high turnover in this department.

It is one of the worst jobs I've ever had. – less

High stress, continually changing, lack of management support
sales (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 11, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: stress & declining pay
Typical day includes continual attempts to get things fixed for your clients and being told to just go sell new and forget about the poor upset client. The work itself is fun, high energy and could be rewarding if they would fix the issues. This is a great example of a company promising the world but not having the products to back it up. If you can – more... sell small businesses without being concerned if they actually get what you sold, this is the company for you. With that said, I do believe the upper management is seeing the need to make changes and it can't come to soon. The pay plan continually changes and it seems like you just figure out how to make money when it does. Additionally, this is a highly competitive industry with the digital products and the print has the perception of being old school or dead.. – less
