    Pros

    Awesome work environment, cool managers, fun work environment.

    Cons

    You will be broke if this is your first time in RADIO. Don't be fooled, you are selling RADIO spots, everything else is extra.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire fresh talent if you are not serious about training and providing a real book of business for them to get started.

    Pros

    Coworkers were cool, perks were pretty great, pay was good for the effort you put in. You learn a lot about corporate media and the tools they provided to do your job were pretty solid.

    Cons

    Upper management pretty disorganized, not a clear mission across the board. Lots of pressure to perform. Cold calling and dealing with satisfied clients regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your employees are people too.
