    I worked at Entercom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very fun work environment, had various tickets given to staff for free, met celebrities and sports figures. Very relaxed atmosphere and casual dress.

    Cons

    Did everyone else's jobs for them. I was an "assistant" but I really did the part jobs of the Account Executives that they didn't want to do. I was "let go" from my job because a previous Sales Assistant wanted their job back so my job was now theirs even though I was a better worker. Every aspect of this company is who you know and if the superiors like you or not.

    I have been working at Entercom full-time

    Pros

    Good money if you're in management. Good benefits if you're full time. Good number of vacation days, and holidays. There are still some fun positions that utilize creativity...but everything points to those positions becoming less and less.

    Cons

    Poisonous work environment. Corporate control is eroding the "live and local" nature of radio. Incredible pressure on sales people, with constant changes in not only product, but percentages, from corporate. Not a "team oriented" environment.

    I worked at Entercom full-time

    Pros

    The traffic department was really easy to work with along with the production department

    Cons

    Need to have a training program for new hires. If they are new to radio they tend to clueless and end up leaving.

    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

    Challenging and rewarding environment. Terrific Assets, Events and Brands to sell. Great work life balance. Health conscious, environmentally conscious and socially conscious. Supportive management at all levels. One of the only media groups that can see past tomorrow and understands the needs of advertisers and listeners. Fun.

    Cons

    Demanding schedule, hours can be long.
