    Radio Digital Sales

    Pros

    The radio business is very interesting. A lot of options to help customers with marketing and advertising. So much so it can be overwhelming. But nonetheless there is always something fir someone to buy. Advertising in general is time consuming, it is not a 8-5 job when starting out. You have access to the digital advertising which can be very lucrative. You have about 4 months to get ramped up. If you are in a smaller market it can be difficult unless you grew up there. In larger markets it could be big as it is truly a numbers game, because it is so competitive. Stay diligent and it will pay off as commissions are huge. Insurance benefits are excellent. Due to covid, there is no 401k match at this time and yes, Covid has impacted sales. Great team of managers, who truly want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    It may be their system when entering orders. It seems a little antiquated. Also, I had no idea the FCC watches over everything with a fine tooth comb.

    A company with no structure and nothing in value to new sales reps coming in.

    Dec 20, 2020 - Media Sales Executive 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good work life balance, Decent pay, nice colleagues and managers on a personal level.

    Cons

    No base pay (with Covid hurting the advertising industry it’s very hard to make a living) terrible training, no defined territories (leads to many arguments between reps) company is catered to older reps and offers little growth for in coming reps. Local managers manage like sales reps and seem to only care about their bonus structure. There are no expenses paid for by the company for travel and benefits are not good. While my experience wasn’t all bad here, Cumulus is one of the worse jobs I’ve ever had and the worse of my professional career.
