    No job security in certain positions you can be fired or layed off even with a contract I've seen many people relocate or just sign and get let go months later

    Advice to Management

    Have more open door policies within management and cultivate job growth within and don't alienate part timers who put forth the same amount of dedication and value as full timers

    Pros

    Lots of work verity with different events and people.

    Cons

    Disorganized and you treated like "The Help" if you are not full time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees with respect and dignity. Allow for growth within the company not by just posting the jobs to current employees but also respectfully interviewing them. Everyone full time and part-time should be included in company events and celebrations.

    I have been working at CBS Radio (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to network with even the top talent at most stations, which enables a lot of networking and beneficial relationships.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, long hours, not too many opportunities for growth unless you're in the sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the work your part-timers do, and reconsider your $10/hr wage. It would boost moral and exposure of your stations.
