Comcast Spotlight offers both financial and nonfinancial compensation as part of the overall compensation package for both sales and non-sales employees. As an Account Executive my financial compensation package includes a salary, commission on sales, bonus opportunities, and benefits. My salary works out to be about 25% of my total taxable income.

The benefits include comprehensive health care insurance, 401K, and a stock purchase plan. The financial compensation is very competitive in the media sales within media sales in Chicago.

An outdoor media Account Executive could very easily generate double the revenue, and not make the same as Account Executive with Comcast Spotlight.
Alternatives As an alternative to issue 1, Comcast can utilize one of its competitive advantages, mergers and acquisitions, to potentially buy out smaller wireless or satellite providers and use their technology to bypass installing fiber optic cables in rural areas.
