    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.

    I worked at CBS Radio full-time

    Pros

    Resources, good benefits, good company culture, enjoyed working here, really only quit because the office was located far outside the city and i wanted something in the city (where i live)

    Cons

    pay was not great, but benefits were good and i enjoyed all my co-workers. my boss was great and it was a great first job out of college

    Advice to Management

    I think training for the lower/entry level employees for other jobs within the company would have been an asset while i was there and i likely would have stayed longer
