    I have been working at CBS Radio full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    These stations are the best in the business. Heritage, professionalism and some of the best people in the industry

    Cons

    This is not a comment specific to CBS - but many of the bigger name companies are now driven by the bottom line to Wall Street - not to what is best or good for radio - and thus, the impact on the staff and advertisers is felt

    Advice to Management

    STOP with the bottom line mentality and get back to what is good radio. You will need to spend some money to make money but the pros's out weigh the cons and in the long term, it's better for you

    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.

    Pros

    Fun, laid-back environment
    Coworkers are mostly friendly
    Expectations are made clear and communication with direct management is easy.

    Cons

    The company is making a lot of cutbacks. There isn't much security right now.
    There is very little structure and no standard for evaluations. If you're not a producer, odds are the people responsible for your career know very little about the quality of your day-to-day work.
    Hours are terrible for almost every employee.

    Advice to Management

    It's not very difficult to make your employees think you care. Small things like buying meals for the office or even good job emails go a long way in motivating a team and creating loyalty to your company. When these gestures are bypassed completely, it is made clear that the people working for you are seen as little more than cogs in a machine.
