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

    Pros

    The pros of this position are that you get to go to cool events, could be a great job for students and a possible gateway to new opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    The pay is unlivable this is definitely not a full-time position. The hours can vary from week to week. You could have over 40 hours one week and the next you could have one shift that's 5 hours at most. At this position you are basically at the bottom and there are some people that are going to treat you like it. Harsh weather can also be a down side.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well because they certainly aren't working here for the pay.

    Pros

    Despite culture, staff tries to work together

    Cons

    Horrible culture. Starting with the General Manager. He doesn't even speak to employees in the hallway or elevator. Creates a culture of working against each other instead of together. There are not any station group meetings, recognition of employees or even ratings successes.

    Pros

    Fun environment, got to go to concerts and they had private events occasionally. Could dress casual depending on your department. Parking was easy.

    Cons

    Stressful, can be a hostile environment, play is low for the area. Communications within departments tend me to hard and resistant to outside opinion.
