    Pros

    Interesting experiences and meet new people

    Cons

    They do not care if you are part-time. It does not feel like you are a part of the team, but when they need you last minute, the guilt you into coming in. For a communications company, they cannot communicate. Most of CBS Radio is run by the part-timers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your part-timers like they are a part of the team. Do not see us as replaceable. Many of us love the group, but treat us right and say hello to us once in a while.

    Pros

    Fun environment. Always new products to sell.

    Cons

    Very corporate. Not a lot of work life balance. They want a minimum of 10 face to face calls per week which is not very realistic with the other demands of the job.

    Advice to Management

    You don't need to micro manage senior and good sales people

    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

    Stable job for radio, good corporate structure, all the benefits perks of a large company.

    Cons

    Poor local management; would rather blame corporate than take accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on what's wrong and why you can't fix it, and more on finding solutions to entice, retain, and grow willing employees.

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

    Pros

    Employees are vested from day one. The company matches your 401k investment up to 6%, I think it was (maybe more). Lots of great people on staff.

    Cons

    Zero autonomy or appreciation for new ideas. Extreme micromanagement creates a culture of fear and distrust. Pay not commensurate to the market, for many positions. Many positions that could easily be justified with a full time salary are limited to part time, hourly positions.

    Advice to Management

    Give talented, qualified people the opportunity to be great and do great things to propel the organization to the "next level".

    Good benefits; decent pay; good radio products/brands; folks genuinely care about their work and making a difference..

    Cons

    No shared vision; poor digital products; not cutting edge; bit of a boys' club..
