    Pros

    The company is great & I loved majority of my co-workers. They had great perks. The marketing and promotions departments were amazing & would be more geared to my line of work. If I could I would work in another department such as the marketing, PR or in promotions. Majority of the AM personalities are amazing & I became friends with them. Overall, it was a great entertainment experience.

    Cons

    The sales department was a hard place to work with. It was cut throat and not a place for me. I would work in any other department.

    Advice to Management

    Sales be more aware of your staff. Remember that your support staff is trying to help as fast as they could. Some AE's are really rude and make the work environment a horrible place to be in. This creates horrible productivity because people don't want to work when they're treated like nothing.

    Pros

    I love the radio business but...

    Cons

    The St Louis leadership starting with Dennis L. (his wife was a manager) and now Beth D. Poor leadership. I would not follow in to battle. "Go up and down Manchester Rd. and collect business cards and bring them back." Huh?

    Advice to Management

    Read Dale Carnegie. Quit playing games.

    Pros

    It was radio, so it used to be fun. Communication and sharing of ideas was actually good. Invested in technology.

    Cons

    Ignored small markets. Too much focus on websites. Fired so many people that they expect you to do the same as you did when there were twice as many people.

    Advice to Management

    You're spending too much money on middle men and
