    I have been working at Beasley Broadcast Group part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family Owned, Publicly Traded, Takes Pride in Radio Business

    Cons

    Too many tall white guys in charge, lets mix it up. The Tall & White Club is getting old.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the people who wrote negative reviews blaming BBGI for their hospital visits. No one told them to apply at BBGI. It's a good company, you make your bed you sleep in it. Walmart has good benefits if that's what they live for.

    I worked at Beasley Broadcast Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I worked at Beasley I felt like I was apart of a family. The Augusta, GA cluster I worked at embraced me as I moved from Indiana for the position and I felt as if I had friends once I moved immediately.

    Cons

    Pay rate isn't great. Radio pay has never been great but I had to fight for raises and work my butt off to make a decent living.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with free remote broadcasts during business hours. This hurts your on-air employees more than you know

    Cons

    Lack of vision or direction.

    It seems like Management had their hands tied by corporate. Can't fault them.

    I worked at Beasley Broadcast Group full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours for Sales Reps, great for someone with young children. Fun perks such as concert tickets, amusement park passes, ski passes, etc.

    Cons

    -Company is completely behind the times in terms of technology and innovative thinking - the workplace mantra is "This is how it was done last year so that's how we will do it."
    -No room for growth unless you are a Sales Rep looking to move into management at some point.
    -Office is outdated, cold, dark, and in an obscure part of the city no matter what direction you are commuting from
    -Company is cheap - less people doing more work for the same money
    -Management takes no interest in young employees and offers no career path to someone just starting out

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money. Update the office buildings and pay employees what they deserve (money is a motivator). Take an interest in your young staff. Senior Account Managers will all retire soon and there will be no one left to take their place because this company drives young people away.

    Charlotte is a great up & coming premier radio market

    Cons

    This cluster (Charlotte) has plenty of room for growth & development regarding employee morale, company culture and effective procedure/protocol.

    Implement an HR department
