I worked at Emmis Communications part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Company allows for many young adults to have supervisory and management positions

Cons

No organization
Low budgets due to industry decline
Incompetent people in supervisory roles
Not enough training for employees and very little opportunity for growth and/or full time employment opportunities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your employees better before promoting them into supervisory roles
By, affording productive employees with full-time status instead of having them remain part-time employees (while requiring full time hours) so you won't have to give them benefits is just plain unfair. Take care of your employees better and they'll do a better job.

    I worked at Emmis Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    WIBC:
    Inept management (micromanagement w/o individual willingness to contribute to the success of the team)
    Overworked and underpaid
    Erratic hours
    Frequently asked to work on weekends, holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet the same expectations you set for WIBC employees. Show appreciation for the hard work performed by many members of the team.
