    No room for growth

    Production Assistant (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsGood people. Learned SO MUCH about the industry, very flexible, and was perfect for when I was in college.

    ConsPay is poor. It is very difficult to gain more experience and move up in the company. I plateaued after 6 months and wanted more responsibility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Small Department- fairly feel, limited room to grow

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat and friendly environment to work in. I felt like we were all one true team. Moral was sometimes lost, due to interoffice bickering between upper management.

    ConsLimited room to grow. On the sales side, senior reps and managers have been there for 15 plus years limiting new entrants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the opinions of your employees. I'd also train mangers how to manager to ensure career growth for all those that want to move up and on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Regional Account Executive

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    Prosnone - all around terrible place to work for, you live under fear, every day of your life, toxic managers, toxic co-workers, that place psychologicly damaged me for life

    Consno training, if you are in a boys club, you will get promoted, if not, start looking for another place, it's a toxic place to work for, I never knew evil before I started my job there..

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to treat humanity with human dignity... it is that simple. no one is less or more, we are equal, we all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. thank you.

    Pretty Good

    Board Operator (Former Employee) Lanham, MD

    ProsEasy radio to produce, everything's taken care of for you. You have a lot of flexibility with hours as well. Sometimes you can score some free stuff. A real laid back atmosphere as well

    ConsKind of low pay, for part-time at least. You also aren't given a lot of direction, there's a lot of figuring it out on your own mentality. I worked at a sports station and there was kind of a fraternity that was excluding anyone who didn't want to talk about sports all the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining was a joke, need more direction from management. There's really no well written contingency plans for when something goes wrong either.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to get to know your interns

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