    I have been working at Emmis Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart, talented, and scrappy. Provides resources to the best ideas, not the loudest voice. Many years at this company thanks to their policy of giving current employees the opportunity to grow and succeed in advanced roles. Great familial culture.

    Cons

    Working in radio has its quirks and challenges, and Emmis (like most media companies) is trying to find their place in a modern, mobile world. Some instability to be expected.

    Interview

    A very non-personal group interview. It felt like I was competing with everyone in the room. If you already know someone in the company prior, don't worry you already have the position.
