    low hourly pay and after working there for months i all the sudden had to get my drivers record to keep my job

    Pros

    Perks, top market has money for events, etc.

    Cons

    Unless you're in management, be prepared to be treated like you're nothing. Managers who have staff that produce are allowed to get away with murder. Too many HR violations to count and a business office that doesn't know what they're doing. Hard to care when half the staff doesn't.

    Advice to Management

    New blood, recognize and promote underlings, if they're there making peanuts it's because they love the business, value that. Stop hiring your friends and relatives just because they are your friends and relatives and get rid of the drama queens.

    Pros

    Good corporate leadership, reasonable goals, strong support on local level, good opportunity for growth if you are motivated, reasonable salary range and the best insurance.

    Cons

    Corporate too far away, middle management sometimes ignored, last minute initiatives were too common, therefore making it difficult to give clients enough lead time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more , talk less, everyone wants to protect their job, but sometimes there's too much Kool Aid being passed around.

    I worked at CBS Radio

    Pros

    Each station is it's own little family. Although it's a large company, it has the comfort of a tight knit business. Also had great networking opportunities and the ability to learn from all departments within the station.

    Cons

    Becoming a full-time salaried employee is difficult. Unless someone left the company and a spot opened, the chance of becoming a full-time, salaried employee was very slim.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your promotions assistants to sit at the tent during their shift. Standing for long hours is not healthy and it would be nice to have chairs to sit in during downtime.

    Pros

    Great variety of radio stations to sell and digital assets available. Mentioning CBS gets attention.

    Cons

    No communication within certain departments, no creativity and lots of stepping on each others toes.

    Advice to Management

    Salespeople need Sales Support

    Pros

    Work environment with sales and programming is fun.

    Cons

    No culture. Sales, programming and promotions clash, lack of communication and direction. Promotions unorganized and always delayed. Management has favorites and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    Too many old timers are sticking around for the paycheck and looking the other direction when trouble arises. Management doesn't know what some of the employees responsibilities for. Surprised upper mgmt. in NY doesn't notice the turn-over rate in Vegas.
