    Pros

    Great people to work with. Every one is very supportive and eager to help answer any questions on new subjects or issues.

    Cons

    Very confusing who has the final call on final decisions. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

    I worked at Radiate Media full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Located in Texas, out of town employees seldom hear from management.

    Cons

    This is a union-busting outsourcing firm used by broadcasters in order to pay significantly less than AFTRA minimums.

    Company began stealing wages a year into employment, insisting on several daily work hours before clocking in. Then, it decreed that the work day did not begin until the reporter arrives at their first story location. In L.A. County, that could frequently be 60 minutes or more in morning rush hour. Start at 7 a.m., unpaid until 10 a.m.

    Company seems to lack trust in employees, insisting on excessive paperwork to document every minute of the work day. Demanded employees take an hour lunch break (something reporters who eat on the run don't due in the course of a day) in order to keep personnel on the clock an extra hour.

    Upon termination for reasons so vague they could not be contested, the firm badly bollixed health insurance conversion to COBRA, further complicated by its HR outsourcing firm. Radiate repeatedly promised to keep my name at the top of the list for the next opening, which they quickly forgot as soon as it received my written pledge not to sue the company in order to collect final wages.

    I worked at Radiate Media full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people, fairly respected in the broadcast industry, the energy of a start-up.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, especially at the highest levels, poor compensation for the work required, a too-many-cooks in the kitchen type of management style. Management plays a favoriteness game by terminating long-time committed employees in order to keep those employees with religiously-similar leanings. Headquarters are dually located in Malvern, PA and Salt Lake City, UT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more support to those employees who got you to where you are today. Loyalty works both ways and all managers need to appreciate this. There is little to no communication to the entire staff about the company's strategy and well-being. CEO's gain respect by being visible and who have a vision that is functional.

    I have been working at Radiate Media part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Great people. Consistent work. I've been here for less than a year working part-time and I was recently promoted to a full-time salaried position.

    Cons

    Can be a little disorganized at times, but there are plenty of gears working together. There's often method to the madness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire within. This is how you gain loyal employees and a sense of opportunity.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great location, office is relaxed with an open dress code. Small office culture.

    Cons

    Under utilized and seemingly forgotten after a management shift. Lack of communication between managers during my unpaid training process made scheduling difficult. Managers got into an argument in front of me during training.

    I worked at Radiate Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great teams to work with. They really know their stuff. They try to be on the cutting edge of every bit of technology.

    Cons

    Don't get stuck in a piece of the company they are moving away from. Move forward with the company. Lay offs come as they change models regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people informed. The company will have more respect if you inform people as to your real intentions.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, nice facility in SLC, hands-off management style and open to discussing new ideas and visions.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't great, benefits are average at best, lack of communication between different areas of the company that could benefit greatly by better strategizing and communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your best resources - the people! Skill sets can cross between different teams to help take this company to the next level.

    I worked at Radiate Media part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It sounds good in the pre-hiring process - the interviews are good, the people sound nice and you can't wait to get started.

    Cons

    NOTHING that was laid out in the pre-hire process other than the rate of pay was truthful. No time off on holidays, no time off if you're sick (or if you ARE sick you have to find a way to cover your shift), management by intimidation and not through leadership, downright dysfunctional inter-company communications and employee support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Get some people in there who know what they're doing. Don't treat employees like they're an intrusion - value them as an asset

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Close to downtown Salt Lake City. Very little micromanagement.

    Cons

    The company has no direction and continually works to stay just ahead of its next mistake. New products are rushed, buggy, and are poorly implemented. Compensation is ridiculously low when compared to comparable positions at other companies. Management claims to have an open ear to issues but either nothing is ever done, or new policies are implemented that worsen the situation. Communication between departments is poor and leaves customer dissatisfied and looking elsewhere. There are no measures of accountability in place which leaves hardworking employees 'out to dry' and poor employees floating along while others are carrying their load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees and customers about the future of products and the direction of the company. Create a system of accountability and appreciation. If internal issues are resolved, the external issues will resolve themselves.

    I worked at Radiate Media full-time

    Pros

    Laid Back atmosphere (most of the time), willing to work with school schedules, willing to work with any schedule you have and sometimes you are able to work from home.

    Cons

    Non-competitive pay. You are not measured for the work you do. There is nowhere to move up in the company. You get hired into a position and that is where you will stay. Managers do not provide any direction. Managers tend to have the superiority complex and all they care about is themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with paying the employees what they deserve. Hire from within. Create a vision that everyone can get behind and that everyone is involved in. Become more transparent.
