  1. Not Bad

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Friendly / Close Colleagues, Laid-Back Atmosphere, Has a small company feel which is a good thing, cool / fun perks

    Cons

    Not much room for growth, raises come (if any) at a minimum, seems to be a high turnover rate which says a lot

    Advice to Management

    High turnover rate is a result of lack of growth opportunities and lack of market value compensation

    Pros

    Great Benefits and compensation package.

    Cons

    Atlanta cluster leadership destroyed this once great company.

    Advice to Management

    The company is being sold. Hopefully new owners will take a good hard look at the people (still there) responsible for the demise of great properties in Atlanta.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    benefits, work environment, non-management employees, perks

    Cons

    management on every level, local and corporate, salary, treatment of employees, upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to your employees and their suggestions. Many have years and years of experience and this should mean something to you. Have staff meetings for new ideas and new opportunities. Don't get bogged down in the past and the way things "used to get done". Overhaul the sales department to ensure fairness and equal opportunities. Institute a separate digital department with the power to get things done. Digital is not the future... it's the NOW.

    Pros

    AMAZING benefits package. There are SOME great people who work here. Great radio properties with potential for growth. The Program Directors are awesome, but limited due to management.

    Cons

    The new management that was brought in three years ago came from a much smaller out-of-state market and they are a little overwhelmed by the San Diego landscape. San Diego is a unique market. Management reduced staff dramatically to save money, however it is apparent that this has compromised efficiency and individual performance. Sales department is unorganized, underwhelmed and in a state of confusion due to management choices and changes.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees work harder and stronger for you, until then, you'll never turn that ship around!
