    I worked at CBS Radio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun place to work, great opportunity to be a part of events around the city

    Cons

    Terrible leadership, everyone is in it for themselves. They will give you a guarantee for a year and then you are on your own. You will not inherit business, so essentially you are generating business for them for the year that you are there and once your guarantee is up you will be forced to leave because you are 100% commission. There is zero team work or collaboration. The top sellers have the top accounts and that does not change. Worst employer I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Training, hiring better leadership who actually care and want to mentor their teams.

    Have more training for new employees in the industry.

    I worked at CBS Radio full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of great brands under the CBS corp. umbrella that are easily recognizable. There is great exposure to top talent in the industry for amazing client partnerships and executions. Learned a lot about big publishers and selling big deals with a wide variety of products and opportunities for clients. Took away great experiences. Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    There are a lot of internal politics as its a big company with lots of stakeholders for every decision. It can be frustrating because it is not the fastest moving or most tech savvy place to work. Lots of cross channel selling - too many sellers selling the same inventory.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focussing on trying to launch so many new/different digital initiatives without true support for any of them. Focus more on long term success rather than short term gains.
