Bait and Switch

Account Executive (Current Employee) Tampa, FL (US)

ProsThe compensation is decent, the co workers are great, and they have excellent on the job training.

ConsIt starts with the interview process for the Classified Department. The 2 managers that are in charge make you think that you will be treated like an adult professional. Then when you start they micromanage you to death. When you try to approach them about this they say it's our way or the highway. Not a professional way to handle your employees concerns. Combine that with the fact that if you do manage to stick it out you go nowhere in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementDump the mid level managers that have been in the same position for more than 10 years and bring in people that have a fresh perspective and some empathy for their workforce.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
