    Pros

    Good office environment; dedicated lower level employees

    Moving to a program what is sold, instead of selling what is programmed. No plan for programming future. Zero investment into in house talent. *** Local market specific

    Former Employee, more than 8 years

    A Soul Crushing Corporate Radio Company

    Mar 17, 2021 - Producer in Dallas, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you're desperate to get a job in radio, this might be the place for you. If you want to observe the slow, painful death of radio in America, this might be the place for you. They don't do drug tests or background checks, so they'll just hire anyone.

    Cons

    The corporate overlords do not care about their staff, nor the quality of the product. All departments have slashed their budgets and workforces to the bone, but are still tasked with more work than they could possibly do correctly, so shortcuts and incompetence about at every step. The company is only concerned with the all-mighty dollar. I know every business exists to make money, but this is a company where the only way your department could get the resources and tools necessary to do their work is if an in-kind advertising arrangement can be made. The pay offered is so low that it was difficult to find entry-level workers. People literally left to work at places like Target and Walmart because the pay and benefits were better there.

    Much improved with new CEO

    Sep 22, 2020 - Producer and Radio Host in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Powerful network of good people working to make a quality product. Communication from management at the very top is great, even if the news is difficult to hear. Safety and security for staff has been a priority through COVID-19, even if hurts the bottom line. HR online systems are strong and easy to navigate. Financial rewards are available to all employees for sales, even if that isn’t in your job description.

    Cons

    Middle level and local management not as good at communication with entire staff. So far haven’t seen any recruitment for advancement in other markets, just additional responsibilities added to current employees without raise or benefit. Radio is still being trimmed to an almost unmanageable level, without enough employees to meet some expectations. Yet the faithful hang on.
