We’re actually fun to work with! Our team truly enjoys what we do and we’re good at it, a one-two punch for career candidates and media companies.

We do the right thing for our clients and our people. While results are incredibly important, our personal connections make an even larger impact. We work hard—and honestly—and that commitment influences so many aspects of our work. CMS is consistently taking strides to go above and beyond our best potential.

Companies come to us for transparent, proven services. Our strong work ethic flows down from the top, starting with leadership. CMS is known for meeting client needs at all management levels with employees directing projects, developing solutions, and filling consulting roles at the largest U.S. based broadcast and national cable corporations.

CMS builds loyalty through trust and integrity. The value our team creates reaches far beyond their years of market knowledge (although that’s great, too).
