Pros

radio is a niche industry, enough experience can be used as good leverage in the long run, if not make a good career for yourself.. but it's a lot of politics.

Cons

the management. they dont know how to manage the staff and the business in general. for a "christian radio company" they have a lot of upper-management employees who are good at belittlling others, they would twist the truth to their advantage, and would make quick decisions without considering all sides first. upper management can also be racist without them knowing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get your heads out of your asses and see the bigger picture!

    Pros

    A lot of GOOD people with good attitudes. I really did enjoy the people and the position I had there. Very nice office and a good environment. Great restaurant downstairs from the office! :) Very large server room with lots of room for equipment and good cooling.

    Cons

    Radio industry is very frugal with salaries. Corporate people were a pain to get money out of for necessary purchases. The GM is too nice of a guy to be a solid leader. They really need to show support to their employees and show them they are appreciated, ie... $$$. don't be so frugal with off-air and non-sales people's salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GM-PDX... You are a great guy but get a little tougher with your higher ups and follow through with your promises. You can do it, you are a wonderful man!

    Pros

    Very friendly people to work with on a local level.

    Cons

    The company has a religious and political philosophy that prohibits them from succeeding in the industries and markets they are present in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your market heads to have more control and stop interfering with their decisions.
