Pros

If you have absolutely no work experience and are desperate for an internship, it's not too difficult to find one here - after all, you're unpaid, you won't have too much competition

Cons

This isn't a learning environment - people come to work here to get their stuff done and go home. Forget helping each other out. I've spoken to full-time employees who constantly have to wait hours and hours for their managers to show up in order to get their work done - meaning they end up staying at the office much later than the average employee. Employees are just concerned for themselves, and have very little interest in the company.

Advice to Management

If you're not going to pay your interns, treat them better. Free soda does not make up for the lack of learning, training, or respect that interns deal with.

    Great potential, but frustration with leadership and coworkers just saps your energy.

    Pros

    - free satellite radio service for employees
    - fairly flat organization, so I had ready access to senior leadership
    - narrow job scopes make it much easier to focus on tasks & over-deliver

    Cons

    - decision-making process is overly finance-centric (when the CFO tells you what the marketing research budget will be, you know you've got a problem)
    - very little latitude to "own" anything...most day to day decisions, surprisingly, get made at the C-level
    - senior leadership wasn't always the smartest folks in the room

    Advice to Management

    Really start recognizing your employees' talent, hard work and experience. Make a commitment to measure and improve your employee engagement...many good people are disillusioned by the lack of meaningful recognition. A real effort goes beyond traditional (political) awards and into programs that leverage their experience to make things better; drive operational improvement and excellence in execution. Has to be more than a line in an email stating "employees are our most valuable resource." The place is all about pushing decisions down the organization...no feedback loop...probably by design.

    Pros

    Pay was fair, benefits were good, vacation and sick time was decent. In the began people we're treated like humans.

    Cons

    company kept everyone on pins and needles, everyone was kept in the dark.
    Growth for the company has been slow and very costly.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of Mel Karmazin and focus on real music programing and not lowest common detonator music. No need to test music
