    I worked at CBS Radio full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The beginning of my decade at CBS Radio Corp was a dream job. We were literally a start-up streaming company within a legacy media company. Our efforts lead to industry innovation and worldwide best practices.

    Cons

    The later part of my decade at CBS was plagued with political upheaval and lack of vision from upper-level management. The new regime despised the old regime and a culture of 'not invented here' made it impossible for older mid-level management (like myself) to continue innovating.

    Also, the new executive team was not familiar with radio and didn't create products to accentuate or to truly benefit our benefactor.

    Advice to Management

    Trust mid-level management to do their jobs. Micro-management isn't scalable.
