    Stay Away from Green Bay!

    Pros

    Coworkers who aren’t management are awesome-some really wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Biggest problem is the OM. Someone who should have never been made a manager. Has no issue with lying, messing with people’s pay and hours, throwing people under the bus, getting staff fired-this guy does it or has done it to an employee during his tenor there. Another problem is the VPs don’t care/don’t believe staff complaints. It gets discussed and then pushed under the rug until the next time. Corporate also ignores multiple staff complaints on surveys and does nothing to fix the problem.

    Pros

    You get to tell people you have a cool job. Your on air hours (minutes) are truly awesome if you make them so. Endorsements can be a huge bonus (i.e. Free car to drive, free cell phone and service, laser hair removal, tattoos, cash, etc.) Best of all, you get paid to listen to music for the majority of your work day.

    Cons

    "Here today, gone today", is an actual saying in radio. The business is extremely competitive, so if you're a real team player or generally a genuinely nice person this isn't the career field for you. In my experience, the people that were the nicest were the people out for my job. Literally, my coworkers were applying for my position while I filled it. Someone always wants a better show on a better station in a better time slot. The best ratings will never be good enough because, as far as management is concerned, ratings can always be better. The marketing and sales staff will ALWAYS be nagging you about what they need from you because they're money hungry. As I held a position on a morning show, I was expected to have watched every TV show of moderate relevance, was expected to be up to date (or rather up to the minute) on any events that had occurred in the last 24 hours, was expected to constantly update all avenues of social media (during my time slot or otherwise). Just because your show runs from 5am-10am doesn't mean your availability should fall into that time slot. You are expected to be there early to make sure commercials are running as scheduled and you are expected to stay for more than a couple of hours after your show is over in order to attend meetings (we would literally have meetings ABOUT meetings), complete show prep, suck up to management, record "live" content, etc. You may be paid for an 8 hour shift (if you're lucky) but in order to be successful you'll be working almost double that. I made $10/hr and I was one of the lucky ones.

    Pros

    VP's of Programming make visits to the station and make themselves accessible. Creativity is rewarded.

    Cons

    Raises are hardly given and pay should be higher. Other than that, no complaints.

    Cumulus (and Clear Channel) killed local radio. Stay far away from this company!

    Pros

    I worked for Cumulus for 5+ years and locally, the people you work with are like family. You are all just trying your best to get by and earn a living. Although corporate tries to kill it, you can still serve your community.

    Cons

    Nationally, Cumulus (or Clear channel) does not care about you, your family or the community the stations it owns serves. The bottom line to the investors trumps all reasoning. They expect one person to do the job of 4 for pitiful pay. If you live in a smaller market (50+), I challenge you to find a live, local DJ outside of morning drive on a Cumulus or Clear Channel radio staion.
