    Pros

    Employee Focused Culture! They openly that their strategy is to focus on employees first and foremost so that they'll transfer their passion for their jobs to their customers and listeners which in turn leads to customer loyalty and bigger profits... In my experience its a win/win. Employee managed "Culture Club" sets up monthly employee activities including a staff facebook page, staff get togethers like baseball games, scavenger hunts, happy hours, pizza making parties, etc. Summer hours let out early on Fridays. GREAT staff perks like tickets and VIP treatment at local attractions, concerts and events.

    Cons

    They expect a lot out of you. Fair but high expectations. Not a place to work if you want to just "mail it in" every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up focus on employees first!

    Pros

    The quality of the professionals you work with is the best in the broadcast industry. A wide range of sales and programming talent offer the advantage of gaining through their experience.

    Cons

    Often the silo's of sales and programming (on-air) don't communicate well.

    Advice to Management

    Work to have the offense and defense are on the same team...

    Pros

    Good first shift schedule, radio personalities are fun to work with. Health insurance is decent, 401K is kind of a joke.

    Cons

    You need to watch your back working here. People will say stuff behind your back. Very passive aggressive environment. Not much opportunity to expand. You are easy to replace and they make it known.

    Pros

    You have a lot of autonomy with your job and time. The people are fun for the most part. Lots of free concert tickets

    Cons

    Awful training and motivation to succeed. Tough business to do well in and you don't get resources to help you. Technology is behind the times. Terrible CRM, no access to mobile devices for sales calls- you must provide your own if you want one. Have to use your own vehicle but no reimbursement for gas or mileage. Just a cheap company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees.

    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.
