High Pressure, not recommended.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 9, 2016
This is the type of sales organization that is high pressure, very stressful and where they encourage abusing the customer on the phone to close a sale. If you can't close them in one call, it's over. So say and do anything you need to get the sale and if not who cares because there are always more people out there.

I didn't feel right working here at all and unless this is your first job and you need the experience steer clear.
Pros
Sometimes free lunch if you work through it.
Cons
Stress, High Pressure, Very Metrics Driven

Overall inexperienced staff!
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 5, 2016
They bring in entry level people who have no idea how to sell. They won't invest in people who actually have experience in the sales field. Training is an absolute joke, and this is basically a glorified telemarketing job. Very low level management which has an adverse affect on overall outcome of employee success.
Pros
None
Cons
Pathetic sales management, awful compensation

Not a good place to work.
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYAugust 31, 2016
Management is very unkind to employees. Seems like this attitude comes directly from corporate. The CEO is an extreme narcissist who is not even a true broadcaster. The company loves to grind people down in every department, from sales to on-air.

Horrible place to work - revolving door company
outside sales representative (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INJanuary 24, 2016
Do not care about their employees, only care about numbers. Do not waste your time. If you will notice all good review are from their corporate office in Charlotte, NC. This is ONLY to work the numbers in their favor. MOVE onto a company that cares... Trust me!
Pros
Pay plan sounds good
Cons
Pay plan is not what they tell you it is....

Online Marketing Consultant- outside sales (Former Employee) –  Buffalo,NYJune 8, 2015
expected to work very long days
Unreasonable quotas
Condescending management team
The other reviews on here are from their robotically motivated inside sales team.
Very poor customer service. If you are a real sales person that cares about your customers you can't sleep at night selling this garbage.
Pros
You get to do lots of really fun role plays!
Cons
they make up fake reviews, if you leave before your first 90 days plan on paying back your training expenses!

Challenging and fun work environment
INTERNET MARKETING CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 5, 2015
Townsquare Interactive is a great place to start a career in sales or to advance and learn new skills.
A typical day consists of a couple of meetings, a training session, open communication with upper management, time to prospect and time to call potential clients.
Management is very hands on and involved. They want you to succeed and are there to help.
Co-workers are very motivated and knowledgeable. Everyone is friendly and there is a lot of high fives going around.
Over all a great place to work.
Pros
great incentives, great commission structure, great benefits
Cons
day's can get long. work can be hard

An Environment Everyone Wants To Be A Part Of!
Digital Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 14, 2014
I have been working at Townsquare Interactive for over a year now, and I've seen the company grow tremendously. The environment is one that you can't beat. Everyone is always willing to help, and there is a real sense of community at TSI.

Not only is the environment great to be a part of, there is tons of room for growth and opportunities for advancement are always there for those who go above and beyond.

If you work hard and show your dedication while working for TSI you'll find that it benefits you long term!
Pros
incentives, benefits, environment, company culture

Growing, fun place to work!!
Sales (Current Employee) –  CharlotteMarch 14, 2014
Townsquare Interactive is a great place to work! It's growing fast so you get to see people getting promoted constantly which is very motivating.
I really enjoy all my co-workers, and how close everyone in the office is. I also enjoy that I make great money!
I've learned a ton about sales, and how to make a quick pitch, if you are not a closer then this wouldn't the job for you!
Pros
casual work environment, fast paced, lots of room for growth!
Cons
none i've seen yet, no match on 401k...
