    I worked at CBS Radio as an intern (less than an 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!

    Pros

    Huge company with great benefits for employees and an honor to be able to say you work for one of the most respected broadcast/media companies in the United States.

    Cons

    At least in our market the radio stations do not get enough, if any exposure to marketing. We sell radio ads but we are not promoted as much as other stations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your stations!
