    I have been working at Cumulus Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have week ends off.

    Cons

    Micro Manage employees big time. Threaten my job to encourage me to do well which doesn't work, it just makes me lose sleep at night.

    Advice to Management

    Be encouraging to your employees and don't threaten our likelihoods to make us do well because it does not work!!! I don't care what anyone else says, it doesn't.

    I have been working at Cumulus Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Work with a lot of talented people
    - Unlimited income (New sellers will never make it that far to see it)
    - Tickets to local events

    Cons

    - Just like every other review on here says, the MICROMANAGING is horrible
    - 10 appointments a week no matter what. Doesn't matter if you write business with only 2 appts/week, they are happier with someone that doesn't write anything but has 10 appts/week because that's what they send to corporate
    - Mandatory cold calling sessions where every business you call has reps from other stations within Cumulus calling them at the exact same time. Doesn't make sense.
    - All numbers are reported to corporate so sales managers are constantly hounding AE's to meet the quota for the number of appointments and other misc things
    - No reimbursement for gas, food, etc. even though some appointments are over 50 miles away
    -Company doesn't match 401(k)

    Advice to Management

    Let the sales managers control their markets, it doesn't make sense to have the same goals for every single market across the U.S. when every city is different.
