A rewarding internship experience.

Marketing and Promotions Intern (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I worked at Entercom as an intern for less than a year

ProsAs an intern, I found that my supervisors and co-workers were more than willing to help, and guided me in the right direction in whatever I wanted to pursue within the company (production, marketing, sales, etc.).

ConsInternship was non-paid, for academic credit. You had to have completed at least one internship with them before being hired on.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice to give!

Respect

Morning Drive Air Talent (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Entercom full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt's one of the few places where I was treated with respect as a person and as an employee. Management really seemed to care about their people, and really engaged you in the day to day workings.

ConsLike most radio companies, change was a constant thing, and being laid off could happen more often than you would like.

8.5 great years

I worked at Entercom full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat outfit with top management, great equipment and the tools to get the job done.
Best crew I've ever worked with.

ConsLike most radio companies, took a beating in 2009 and later.

Talk Show Producer

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsGood mix between a big box company and a local outlet. Relaxed yet focused environment. VERY flexible.

ConsAt the mercy of quarterly finance report. Changes at anytime to satisfy shareholders.

Advice to Senior ManagementClearly communicate with employees. Be a straight shooter and less of a 'veiled' speak.

Rewarding and collaborative.

General Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Entercom as a contractor for less than a year

Don't plan on making any money here

Anchor/Producer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Entercom part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI work on the programming side, the people are very friendly, and you're given a lot of freedom to work on your projects for shows.

ConsI've been at Entercom for over 3 years, and I've been a drivetime Anchor for the company for over a year. I still make minimum wage and receive no benefits.

The people make the crap worth it.....

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Entercom for more than 8 years

ProsWonderful co-workers, flexible schedule, tickets to shows.

ConsRidiculous CRM system that does not function properly and upper management and lower management can't decide what is actually important in the system. Management in general talks out of both sides of their mouth and the right hand has no clue what the left hand is doing. Poor communication between departments, over-promise and under-deliver seems to be the general motto. Even if you wanted to advance there is no opportunity. 2-3 sales people hold the majority of the accounts that allow an decent income to be made and one sales manager holds other large accounts...while the rest of the sales team is starving.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look at the poor performance directly related to certain managers and be pro-active and replace them. Pay the managers a salary that will allow them to relinquish their account list so others have a chance. Pick a plan and stick to it...change is not a bad thing until it occurs over and over with no true direction.
