    Pros

    Excellent employer to gain solid digital marketing skills. Excellent training resources for a person who has the interest and willing to apply themselves and learn. If you can join this company you can transform your career into digital marketing sales.

    Cons

    Their print media assets are constantly diminishing in revenue value just as they are everywhere for print media. Sales is geared towards retention of this decreasing revenue. Cool to be in DigitaL Marketing and you need to be willing to always be learning learning learning.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't play my deck of cards any differently. Careful you don't lose staff after you have skilled them up. They are working hard to retain that print revenue against the odds.
