    Pros

    If you are looking for a start in radio, this is a great place to begin. Very positive work environment and training is great! Fun atmosphere and an easygoing work life.

    Cons

    Working in radio you have to work with a variety of personalities every day, which can sometimes be challenging. Keep a good attitude and you will go far!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork!

    I have been working at Beasley Broadcast Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady check. Decent pay, though people are let go often

    Cons

    401k "benefit" is entirely employee funded. Health insurance is not impressive. Mid-level management is often changed. "Change" is spoken about frequently, but the plan is the same plan it has been for 30 or 40 years. Nothing changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the future, employees. Not in consultants.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to develop as an on-air personality. Creative license to take the show where it needed to go.

    Cons

    Like all companies, driven by profits. Sometimes that can cloud the judgment of management.

    Great job and experience in life to have.

    Promotions relies completely on interns

    I worked at Beasley Broadcast Group

    Pros

    There are great travel opportunities as an intern at Beasley and it's a great networking opportunity.

    Cons

    The business model is fundamentally flawed, as the promotions team brings in 25+ student interns a semester with no intention of hiring any of them. Each event has 2-3 interns scheduled to work, but only the staff gets paid for the event. There is no opportunity to grow and the atmosphere is extremely unprofessional. The interns are treated like garbage and are constantly being gossiped about.

    A lot of fun but plan to work your butt off

    I have been working at Beasley Broadcast Group

    Pros

    Family culture; radio/music business is fun; see great concerts; meet celebrity artists, musicians; they put the listeners first

    Cons

    They run a tight ship so you may have to wear a lot of hats and get your hands dirty; since listeners and clients come first and second, employees tend to come last

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more competitive with compensation, benefits, perks and overall support. Staff often stretched too thin...a penny wise, pound foolish mistake.

    I worked at Beasley Broadcast Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Its a great place to network in the radio world and I gained a lot of experience. It was a fun job but left little social life on the weekends.

    Cons

    There is no money to be made at this company. Its also a rotating door for most people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people better

    Pros

    Great group of employees in every department. Funnest job of my life.

    Cons

    Poor pay and lack of appreciation from upper-management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of members of your promotions staff has college degrees and work every weekend, yet none of them can break $30k in a year. That's a problem.

    Dream job... not

    I worked at Beasley Broadcast Group

    Pros

    The Miami Radio Market is like no other. When you are doing your job it is FUN FUN FUN. A dream job of sorts.

    Cons

    The pay is what makes it a not. Everyone treats you like a rookie even though most there didnt get college level education. The all want you to have over 10 years on the job to be able to have some kind of say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your lower level employees like the future of Beasley. The interns want to be there, and work there, so use that energy to mold them into your perfect future job candidate.
    One important side note: You should provide every employee with access to headquarters to let them know what is going on Beasley stations. Maybe an anonymous form via email.

    Large stable company. Good opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    very tight deadlines for the work assigned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rome wasn't built in a day. Your employees are proud to work for you, but could do even better work with more time.
