    I worked at CBS Radio as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros: Lots of hands-on experience, opportunity to learn a lot, and an up-close look at the radio industry.

    Cons

    There was no pay, and my hours were 5a-9a. I can't complain, because I knew what I was getting myself into. But down the road, pay would be nice!

    I have been working at CBS Radio part-time

    Pros

    It is a fun, community-like experience. Veteran employees love what they do and do it well. More experienced people happy and willing to provide advice, help to younger folk. Organizers of the Alliance for Women in Media group work at CBS Radio and support young women in their career aspirations.

    Cons

    Ambitious people with a passion for radio may feel they are not challenged in the Promotions Assistant position.

    I worked at CBS Radio part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You can get some free stuff that people send to stations. It did have some people that cared about their work.

    Cons

    A few people do most of the work, and most people don't get to being busy at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin the herd: if someone is lazy, tell them to shape up or ship out. If people can't carry their weight, then they shouldn't be there.
