    Pros

    The work environment is quiet and everyone is willing to help. It really gets you out of your she'll if you're shy.

    Cons

    There isn't really a way to move up in the company. It's very select and people come and go a lot.

    Pros

    Steady job, decent management and good perks. All of my coworkers got along which made the work environment more relaxed.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay. Management needs to recognize that part time employees who work more than 40 hours a week need to be full time.

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

    Pros

    It was a great internship they informed you of everything that you needed to know about the radio industry. There was time that just as an intern you got to be on the air. There was fun events that you got to be at even attending them without working them.

    Cons

    There was to much favoritism with the interns. It would sometimes come to where what other an intern thought of you they would let a manager know. That manager would start to hate you and not treat you right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just make it to where there is more of an investment in making sure all interns are treated the same. It should be on your work not on how much you can suck up to the managers on how you are treated by managers. I think they do treat teaching the interns the hows of the industry.

    Pros

    Great beer, great food and awesome location. Denver is a fantastic city and this place embodies all that is Denver.

    Cons

    Well the restaurant part of this business had to close so I lost my job. They don't have any food to serve at the brewery but do allow delivery and the occasional food truck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to adapt more.

    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 worked at CBS Radio full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hardly any...the occasional ticket to an event.

    Cons

    Not much support for young media sellers, and much less for young women. Unfortunately, everyone is a means to an end there, so there isn't much teamwork or trust to be developed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your employees like humans.
