    Pros

    Great Company, well trained experienced talent and employees.

    Cons

    They don't value talent over 50.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more FT talent over age of 50. Put higher value on talent not youth. Listeners don't care if a talent is older.

    Pros

    Can get tickets to events sometimes. Some people are nice and friendly. Relaxed work environment when compared to most traditional settings.

    Cons

    Management is unaware of problems in the work place if they are aware of it then they choose not to deal with it. Not much room from growth. Most people left for better paying jobs elsewhere.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Promotions Assistant in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Promotions Assistant in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    Getting to go to shows, working fun events, getting paid to basically be stuck in traffic, making fans happy

    Cons

    Huge distrust of staff, no promotional opportunities, staff is really hard on new people and it takes a while to feel comfortable, management didn't like women

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Saw a lot of people not get a fair chance or get picked for fun events because they weren't part of the group of favorites. Lots of special treatment to certain people.

    I have been working at CBS Radio full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment & awesome perks with concerts and local events

    Cons

    It's definitely a tough sell, for any sales person. Seems as if the only people who are successful are those who have been in the industry for 10+ years and have already built accounts.

    Former Intern - Spring Intern in Phoenix, AZ
    Former Intern - Spring Intern in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    Really great team. As an intern you get to experience all departments and see all different aspects of the Phoenix branch. You learn a lot about customer service in a fun environment (Spring interns can work Country Thunder).

    Cons

    It seems like a lot of Promotion Assistants get stuck in that position. I don't know if it's because they don't ask for promotions, they're content within that positions, or they are just not cut out for the industry.

  11. Summer intern who didn't like heat...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CBS Radio

    Pros

    Free concerts and movie tickets.

    Cons

    Not what it was advertised to be. Lots of standing outside in the Saint Louis heat just sweating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay interns at least something for traveling all over the city.
