    I worked at Reach Media full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to get good experience, making the company a decent choice for young professionals .

    Cons

    Poor organization, too many people working in silos. Unreasonable expectations versus available resources. Training opportunities, such as attending conferences and related employee development were non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate strategy and planning more effectively to rank and field. Offer greater training opportunities. Adopt more of a corporate structure with regard to overall management rather than flying by the seat of the pants.

    I worked at Reach Media

    Pros

    The culture is fun, inviting, inclusive and family oriented. There are many opportunities to learn and grow. Managers provide guidance and take the time to know their team.

    Cons

    The events can be very exhausting. They require a lot of hard work and long hours but it is worth it in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more entry level jobs and attempt to expand the business. Reach even more consumers and compensate your interns even it's a small amount.

    I worked at Reach Media

    Pros

    Because of its affiliation with Radio One and the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Reach Media has excellent brand equity in the entertainment media market. There are a few perks when it comes to event access. Also, you can call it birth by fire. If you can survive life at Reach there are very few situations that can break your spirit.

    Cons

    I can only speak for interactive media, and as a whole it is neglected as a major revenue generator for Reach as a company. Too often interactive is asked to spin straw into gold--and within an unrealistic time frame. Also, there is a level of unprofessionalism that circulates throughout the office. There have been times people were literally screamed at in meetings and publicly embarassed. Executives at the top are often too far removed from the daily workings and don't have a big picture of what interactive media should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in an outside firm to evaluate corporate structure and take their advice on how to foster employee morale, manager-employee relations, human resource protocol, career paths, and employee education. Get rid of the infighting, corporate posturing and nepotism. Seek out professionals who are QUALIFIED for the jobs they have, not just friends of friends.
