Enjoy the challenge of the sales process
Sales Manager (Current Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 18, 2013
Pros: meeting new people daily
Cons: no room for advancement
The majority of the day is devoted to phone and door to door cold calling.
I've learned that the importance of discipline in following my daily, weekly and monthly sales plan.
Management has it's own set of rewards, the satisfaction of development of sales reps into Top Producers
My co-workers are what completes the satisfaction of a position. Without – more... relationships in the workplace it can be a lonely day!
Hardest part of the day is keeping fresh set of new prospects, while the most enjoyable part is closing a sale. – less

Started out great, then they stopped paying people!
Regional Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 26, 2012
Pros: money when you can hit goal, relationships
Cons: no clear company direction or dependability
As a Regional Sales Specialist in Automotive my team members were great as were my manager and VP until they were undermined and either demoted or fired. 3 reorganizations in 3 years is scary. You might make good money for a year or two until they can't afford you. That's when your goals become unrealistic and unattainable. The Houston North team lost – more... its top two reps (both Hearst Prestige Circle winners) in a span of 6 months because of the unreliability of the word of management as well as never knowing what your goals will be or rarely getting them before the pay period ends. This amount of inconsistency and stress is the worst part of the job. They also don't take the time to test they're products or the fulfillment before they put them in market which leads to undue stress and client retention discussions.The best part was the money when they allow you to make goal as well as the relationships with clients and teammates. – less

A better-than-average newspaper employer
News editor (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXJune 9, 2012
I put the news out. I supervised copy-desk staff, as well as reporters and photographers. When "stuff" happened, it was my call as to how to play it. I loved my job and felt that in my own insignificant way I was helping people keep abreast of noteworthy news.

Good Benefits. Poor management.
Graphic Designer (Former Employee), ConnecticutFebruary 22, 2012
Pros: benefits, friendly people.
Cons: poor management, wrong people in wrong places.
Benefits package is the best thing the company offers.
As a media company, still looking for identity in the confusing market, due to changes and new technologies. So, do not expect any job security or advancements.
