Pros

You'll learn a lot about radio and marketing. Look at it like an awesome internship.
Lots of autonomy so you can learn the skills you want to develop... don't just sit on facebook all the time. Use this time to brush up on your talent! Your next job will appreciate it.
Perks- Free tickets, trade with local businesses= lots of free food and drinks
Decent benefits options available to you.
Great product. Good content that salespeople believe in.

Cons

Layoffs. Random, without notice.

Way behind the curve for technology (on a local level. Corporate seems up to speed.)
You won't have the resources you need to do your job, so you'll have to buy it yourself (ex: Photoshop/Adobe Suite). You will be the only person in your market with your job title, so you'll have to reach out to some National stranger if you need help. This can be nerve-wracking.

No opportunities for advancement. Unless you want to be an AE, and then maybe someday you can be a sales manager. You won't get a raise. Your bonus pool seems to shrink every year, and if you're hourly, you won't get overtime. You won't get overtime if you're salaried, either.

Basically, if you're not an AE, you'll be stuck at this pay level for your entire tenure. Your job description will keep expanding and expanding, until suddenly, you're not really doing what you were hired for. You're doing the jobs of all the people who were let go!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the "little people" people what they're worth, and perhaps the turnover won't be so high! Yes, your AEs generate revenue... but don't you realize that they need capable support staff?

    Pros

    Work hard, play hard team environment. Opportunity to travel and hard work is rewarded. Top sales performers do very well and earnings with 6 figures. Advancement possible as company grows.

    Cons

    Not a place for clock punchers who want little or no change in their life. There will be constant change here with new markets and assignments. You must embrace change to survive!
