    I worked at Radio One part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Its a great experience if you want to work in urban radio.
    - Attracts excellent talent
    - Allows you to learn a lot about the media industry

    Cons

    - Lack of career growth and development
    - Little diversity in upper management
    - Low moral among employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create paths of growth for employees. Treat the urban audience as more than just ratings and numbers. Be more creative as a company and not just copy the what the competing companies do.

    I have been working at Radio One full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Meeting celebrities, the opportunity to network and the relaxed environment

    Cons

    Little to no room for growth, no raises, not family friendly, they treat you like a number instead of a valued employee even when you give outstanding service, they expect you to choose your job over any other aspect of your life. They have no understanding when it comes to your own family. They also hardly ever give raises and when you do receive one, it's literally pennies every 3 to 4 years. It's nearly impossible to keep up with the rise in the economy with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your employees what you can do to improve their work experience and provide it, within reason. If you have good, hard working and trust worthy employees don't run them into the arms of another company by making them feel like a number and allow your employees to flourish and grow. Train current employees if they apply for a position instead of hiring externally.
