    Pros

    The culture at Entercom embraces both the employee and the employee's family. Entercom acknowledges and rewards performance. There are excellent career opportunities within Entercom. From a compensation standpoint, Entercom is very competitive. Senior management is actively involved in market operations and is responsive to the needs of the markets.

    Cons

    More micro-management than warranted at times.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up a little. Recognize that the media world is changing rapidly and in order to recruit the best and brightest you need to redefine your organizational structure from that of a traditional media company to a new media enterprise.

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Radio is still a great medium to capture potential customers for any business and the Entercom station I was at was one of the leaders in the market. In addition to having a strong core product management was always trying to stay relevant with the always changing landscape of today's digital and online advertising market. It was nice to see a company actually balance new digital products with its core product and truly care to reinvest in the training of its sales teams.

    Cons

    It was difficult to start from scratch and begin to develop and build a local book of business. Many of the companies you may have been interested in soliciting were already with the company or were working with one of your colleagues, with relegated you to the 2nd and beyond tier markets to go after. There was and is a healthy turnover rate for sales because of this.(In my opinion)

    Advice to Management

    Do not rely on the new salesperson to ask for a manager to ride along on their sales appointments, really make sure you are going on as many new sales calls with new employees and your schedule will allow. Even with a successful and proven advertising background a seasoned sales professional may find Radio advertising difficult to dial in on. (Yes, pun intended)
