      Pros

      Cumulus Media provides a great place to work and fun people to work with. Working in radio can be stressful at times, but if you love the industry it can be rewarding work.

      Cons

      Obviously, the hours are tough when just starting out. Early mornings, late nights, weekends, etc. Also low pay and tough to break into a permanent role from part time.

      Fun workplace

      Pros

      Super fun workplace. Very relaxed in terms of dress and communication. There’s always events to go to, and they’re really good about hooking you up with event tickets.

      Cons

      All the entry-level positions are part-time with very low pay. You would 100% have to have a second job.

      Pros

      Great working with a staff that share a passion for radio broadcasting,

      Cons

      Heavy work load with no pay, under staffed, high ranking corporate VP's too busy to know exactly what's going on in each market, no opportunity to advance if you've been with the company for years, low pay, PD's too burnt out to train new talent, no life outside of Cumulus if you are a manager, harassment complaints are not taken seriously.

      The Final Nail in the Coffin That is Radio

      Apr 12, 2014 - Program Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They give you a good and professional imaging VO people. If you are in the right place, you get some very knowledgeable radio people at your disposal.

      Cons

      Low pay, tons of free work, long hours, stressed employees, watered-down radio, corporate control, one engineer for many stations, which means engineers can't get to anything other than the most crucial projects (and there is ALWAYS a station off the air), Programming station from across the county, with some peon sitting in the local stations sorting out the headache that could have been avoided if the station had just been programmed locally.

      Pros

      You learn a lot about the radio industry and the inner workings. I enjoy the people I work with on the local side and have made many great friends. The perks are great, and it's an exciting industry.

      Cons

      Low pay and not-so-great benefits makes it hard to find committed and hardworking individuals. There's a lot of turnover and there's no real face to face with the corporate side. A lot of disconnect between corporate and the local side.

      Pros

      The CEO Mary Berner is really good and gave much power back to the local markets and raises to many who had not had one in 10+ years.

      Cons

      Low pay. Entertainment jobs and skill positions that pay MINIMUM WAGE?? Too much corporate 'deals' that get forced on the local markets. Low pay. Not enough staff. Low pay.
