Stressful and Poor Training
Advertising Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCApril 10, 2017
This company has very poor training for new account executives. You are basically thrown into the field and are ridiculed in front of the entire staff daily if you don't make a sale that day. Culture is more like middle school and teacher's pets. If you are a pet you will get a good territory and be spared ridicule at the sales meetings which are twice a day every day. If you are not a pet you will be given the worst territory they have.
Pros
Compensation, Benefits
Cons
Management, training, humiliation in front of co-workers

ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCMarch 28, 2017
The State was a great place to work as long as you did it 'their way'. Unfortunatley, management wasn't very open to new ideas or alternative ways to create productivity. I did enjoy the team I worked with and learned a lot.
