No real opportunities for career growth

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at CBS Radio full-time for more than a year

ProsOverall the people were nice and seemed generally competent at their roles.

ConsThe company offered not opportunities for training, most people were complacent and without any sort of training processes seemed behind and weren't nearly as productive as they could be.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out a way to keep your employees incentivized to continue challenging themselves and grow.

CATTY CATTY CATTY. Just like High School

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at CBS Radio part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat opportunity, Networking, Meet great people.

ConsIf you're not buddy buddy with management you're not getting ahead AT ALL. If they don't like you for whatever reason they'll lie to your face about why they won't or can't promote you, and give it to their under qualified friend. Good hard work is not recognized never rewarded.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring friends of friends who are entirely unqualified for the job and actually hire knowledgeable people who know what they are doing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sink Or Swim - No training whatsoever, very little direction, and a lot of pressure to succeed immediately

Account Executive (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at CBS Radio full-time for more than a year

Pros- Good people
- Flexible work hours
- Good benefits
- Some good work perks

Cons- No database for people already called on
- Very unorganized
- Very little praise when a sale is made
- No "team" mentality in the workplace

Advice to Senior ManagementThe salesforce needs to be more organized! Too many salespeople stepping on each other's toes and can get very stressful when it doesn't need to be. Instead of handing accounts to people who have a large client base already, give some to people who need most, and need to learn post-sales process. Very little help and/or guidance to younger and newer employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Rollercoaster ride, annual management changes and commission structure changes

Account Executive (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at CBS Radio

ProsIf you work hard, and hit your numbers, you have a lot of freedom

ConsIf you are not hitting your numbers be prepared to be majorly micro-managed. Charge back policy is B.S. If client doesn't pay company in 90 days, they take the commission back from you.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a consistent postive message, rather than concentrating on the negative. Postively motivate rather than motivating by saying, "If you don't hit your budget, we lower your commission" Make positive goals.

Well, it's too soon to tell.

Executive Producer, News (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at CBS Radio

ProsThe prestige of the brands and the reach into major metro markets -- why else would you work for a giant media company? It's all about being the in Big Leagues, and CBS has some great stations.

ConsThe radio industry in general is suffering, and CBS is milking the stations for all their worth. Presumably before shutting them down or selling them off. The career options don't look good, because,well, it's radio.

Advice to Senior ManagementExplain how CBS is different than the numbnuts at Clear Channel. Make us proud again.
