      Salary below average

      Pros

      Great people to work with for the most part. Talented staff. Brand is respected in the market. CEO Mary Berner seems to be trying to turn around morale.

      Cons

      Slave labor from salaries that have not kept up with the cost of living Pettiness among some staff If someone leaves they are not necessarily replaced for cost savings and staff gets to absorb their job.

      Lots of Possibilities

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company as a whole is filled with great people who are excited about what they do. There is always something going on whether its a client event, concert, festival-- it makes it a very exciting environment.

      Cons

      Don't expect to get a raise here anytime soon. The company filed for bankruptcy in Nov 2017 however, far before that numerous employees were rejected pay raises or even parking compensation.

      Middle manager and on air key daypart

      Oct 27, 2017 - Program Manager in Bethlehem, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's radio. The pros are the usual. Great people and definitely interesting. It's not digging ditches.

      Cons

      The rule here is essentially the same in most radio today. Management won't tell you that they work to abide by "25/25". That is, keep them under 25, making under 25. This is where I learned the term. I've seen payroll and I'll tell you right now that with rare exception the men to women ratio suffers a huge female gap in both hiring and payroll. They'll bring you in on salary and start piling on the hours. The company is historically unstable and the job itself has seen many transfers in ownership. Long established air personalities with huge market footholds are pushed out: they simply cost too much.

      Pros

      - fun environment - laid back atmosphere - great people to work with - events that are paid by a tech fee are higher wages for techs (i.e. if an event tech fee is $60, a tech gets paid $60 for the whole event instead of $8/hr)

      Cons

      Careers in the radio industry are slow to advance into Pay does not include raises Sometimes communication is a bit off
