    I worked at CBS Radio (More than a year)

    Pros

    good people, fun environment, easy work.

    Cons

    extremely unreliable hours. Absolutely no opportunity for growth. Little to no communication between assistants and their higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your assistants in the loop! Also hire less people and give them more hours. Since there is nearly no opportunity for growth, an annual raise would be much appreciated to keep good employees.
