    Like Working in an Episode of "The Office," Except No One is Funny...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome very nice people who would probably be great to know outside of work.

    ConsVery dry, stuffy and stiff environment. Forced fun.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppoint people to delegate that have real leadership qualities and can handle the balance between being a boss/friend.

    Struggling industry with issues in Management, Budget and Organization

    Promotions Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCompany allows for many young adults to have supervisory and management positions

    ConsNo organization
    Low budgets due to industry decline
    Incompetent people in supervisory roles
    Not enough training for employees and very little opportunity for growth and/or full time employment opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees better before promoting them into supervisory roles
    By, affording productive employees with full-time status instead of having them remain part-time employees (while requiring full time hours) so you won't have to give them benefits is just plain unfair. Take care of your employees better and they'll do a better job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Get with the time.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits, notority, parking space downtown,

    ConsPoor Management, non creative, old dinosaurs in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Young people have good ideas. Get out of the traditional radio box. Allow for more creative autonomy. Too much beurocratic red tape.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Representative of Radio Industry Decline

    Production Director (Former Employee)

    ProsMoney spent on equipment and facility

    ConsHorrible double-standard from management- will tell a group one thing, tell individuals another. Cut-throat management. No security whatsoever. You get the distinct message you are very replaceable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more and trust in employees. More accountability from management. Eliminate favoritism. Be more open and honest with staff. Be more encouraging of ideas from rank and file. Don't be so tied to doing things one way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
