Current Employee - Account Executive

I have been working at CUMULUS MEDIA full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have been working at Cumulus for about 6 months, and I have to say it is by far the best place I have ever worked. I had never worked in Media before Cumulus, and I couldn't have felt more accepted.... Everyone was quick to help me learn the ropes, training was interactive and informative, and I was even set up with a Mentor on my team who has been nothing but helpful since I started. My Manager also feels more like a mentor, rather than someone who just makes sure I hit budget - which is exactly the type of work environment I strive in. Pretty lenient in the fact that they aren't super micro-managing. Yes you have your office hours, and yes there are certain times throughout the week that are dedicated to finding your new clients, but thats normal if you want to be successful. Definitely helps me find the best ways to manage my time to be successful! Overall, The culture is interactive/fun and the people are amazing. We all work different accounts and are quick to help one another when needed. The best choice I ever made was making a move to Media in Radio with Cumulus Media! It is a supportive and motivating environment - not to mention interacting with hosts and DJs, and being apart of events, concerts, games all around DFW. Definitely worth the application!!

Cons

None so far, I actually really enjoy it. I mean other than wishing that 8am-5pm wasn't standard working hours I'm pretty sure thats normal for everyone. But if I am with clients I'm usually out of... office anyways.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. I have been here less than a year and learned more in 8 months than I could have ever thought possible. I am excited to see where this company takes me!
