    Great Organization with Opportunites

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI found that working for CBS Radio was enlightening and professionally a strong decision. I made long-time friends and also absorbed quite a bit about the radio broadcast industry. You have the opportunity to be your own self, to work on projects that need attending, and a great place that fosters creativity.
    Benefits package is pretty strong.

    ConsOnce you are out of the company, it is difficult to get back in. Working in any market other than a large market means wearing many hats aka: multiple jobs under one title.
    Also the pay is....radio broadcast pay. Historically underpaid for vertical jobs at other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so quick to take the side of Sales. Money is important, but when yo cannibalize talent for short-term money you are only hurting the 10year bottom line.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of fun, but not very professional and really uneven work load

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsTons of fun benefits like sporting events and concerts to go to. Fun group of people, I felt like I was back in college sometimes with the party atmosphere.

    ConsReally uneven work load, some people are so swamped while others are bored all day. If you have a good sales manager it's great, but expect them to be the only resource you have.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate needs to give the local managers more say as they are the ones that know what's really going on.

    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
