Fun place to work
Multi-media Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 10, 2014
As a multimedia account executive, you are responsible for researching prospecting and attaining new clients daily for multi-media marketing and advertising, and creating multi-platform campaigns from start to finish.
It's a fun job, but often times very stressful. I'd say about 75% of the job takes place on the road, cold-calling and knocking on doors.
I loved the social aspect of working with The New Times-- there's always a tweet-up and happy hour and never a dull moment.
Pros
freedom to plan your day, great staff and sales team, great parties/events
Cons
demanding and stressful, too much driving, it's a tough sale.

It was a great place to work with a lot of great people, both talented and genuine, who were and still are a second family to me. I learned a great deal about leading by example, accountability and consistency.

The joys of marketing in New York City
Digital Marketing/Promotions Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 1, 2012
Every week I am at an event, promoting for the Village Voice. It is a joy to be a part of something so flexible and free, although I do sometimes crave the daily workings of a traditional workplace. The people I work with are people who will be in my life for a very long time, lasting friendships are made and my supervisor does her best to make sure that our work is comfortable, yet task-filling.
Pros
free events, networking, meeting people who will possibly be an asset in my future.
Cons
short or no breaks, small check amounts
