    I worked at Citadel Broadcasting for more than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers, creative atmosphere.

    Cons

    With corporate radio, the perks of the old days are more or less gone. As a personality, the job was extremely unstable. As an account exec, high pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you have a talented, hard-working staff and treat them accordingly.

    I have been working at Citadel Broadcasting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are fair, not great

    Cons

    Long hours, a system that engulfs your life. No communication from the top. Just work work work and no pay raise in two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that people work for you that have real lives. Treat them like you would like to be treated. If how you treat people is what you think is right, rethink your objectives. Treat employees fairly and they will outperform for you
