    Pros

    You end up working with some truly talented people, there are a lot of perks that come with working in media, the hours are normal, management isn't overbearing.

    Cons

    You end up working with some real crazies, management (while not overbearing) seems to be lost most of the time, you end up doing five times the amount of work expected for your pay.

    Pros

    Company is a mid sized radio performer with great assets

    Cons

    The company preaches innovation yet punishes those who try new things. Stepping outside the box is a disaster in Entercom. The General Managers have too much power.

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow Market Managers to make programming decisions. Terrible things happen.

    Pros

    Great and very talented individual contributors, especially the creative and on-air talent! Fun activities and ticket perks!

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. Sales management throughout the company, except for a few small pockets, is pretty bad. The company itself does not focus on hiring right and the managers are very uneducated when it comes to finding the right people and how to do so. There is a lot of questionable practices and many times it comes down to what you look like over what your skills and experience actually are.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. Stop blaming people who bring up negative things throughout the company and start listening to some of the changes that need to be made. If there is smoke, there is usually fire, stop ignoring the signs. Treat people right and your amount of turnover will decrease. There seems to be an overall notion that people are replaceable. When you have constant turnover, don't you think your clients recognize that? It looks really bad and it is the reason that Entercom is kind of looked at like the fly-by-night jokster of the radio world and why they are far behind the likes of iHeart and Cumulus.

    Pros

    The company culture is very laid back and fun. There are a lot of work events and group outings. It is also in a great location.

    Cons

    The pay is no where near the average salary for this role. The pay in radio is horrible if you are outside of sales.

    Advice to Management

    The advice to management would be to pay more and keep up with the competition. There is a very high turnover rate because of this.
