    Pros

    Very cool people, interesting work, fast pace

    Cons

    As in any company, there is some dysfunction. There is sometimes a lack of transparency on decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    Share your thinking with everyone. Solicit input from people lower down on the food chain.

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly staff and co-workers. Flex schedule, team atmosphere - get the job done kind of work place. Nice offices.

    Cons

    weak health benefits, low wages - comp package is lacking in the industry. seemed to be very top heavy. Too many managers not sure sometimes who the boss was.

    Pros

    Friendly workers. Everyone is very easy to talk to and will share their experiences readily and tell about the industry. Plus, radio is a pretty cool thing to be doing.

    Cons

    Aging industry, aging processes. Not the place to think creatively and some of the old DJs think it's still the 80s. But that could've been unique to the branch I was working at.

    Pros

    management is willing to teach and works with you as a team member…or should I say family member!

    Cons

    If I had to choose a con to this company it would be pay. But hey, it's radio!

    Pros

    Good radio stations and lots of sales opportunities. Using the Creative consultant they use is their best asset. CEO is non-existent for a small "family" company but he seems to want provide a winning atmosphere.

    Cons

    Market leader talks a good game but never acts on anything. Steps aren't taken to correct internal issues. Same problems with employees and systems go on with no resolve. The threat of layoffs hovers over as bad managers get to run rough shot around the building. They want to be great but fall short.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan and execute it.


  10. About a year that I'll NEVER get back . . .

    Pros

    Great-sounding, well-programmed radio stations that the community and listeners enjoy and/or are passionate about. Lots of solid on-air history.

    Cons

    Leadership is scattered and not nearly as focused as it should be. Having BEEN a LSM, GSM, and AGM, I was unimpressed with how things (in New Brunswick, NJ) were run.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your talent pool better. Get that sales team working AS a TEAM . . . not as a group of "sub-contractor sellers."

    Pros

    Developed great relationships, learned A LOT, because if you can survive here, you can survive anywhere, talented employees

    Cons

    Favoritsm, Over-worked and underpaid, Negative environment (a lot of poor attitudes depending on which department you are in) and constant cristicism, rarely to never positive,revolving door --constantly people leaving/coming, changing positions, job description/duties constantly changing from what originally promised, seem to be a little "crooked" for lack of a better word

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with yourselves and your employees. Respect and value your employees; without them, you are nothing. Do not show favoritsm, because it is more than evident. More POSITIVE, constructive criticism.
