I worked at Cumulus Media full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You get to work with some interesting radio stations...many of them unfortunately have fallen on hard times since Cumulus management took control

Cons

Total top down control from the Dickey Brothers in Atlanta. They have absolutely no intest in employee morale or in employee involvement in station problem solving. In the words of CEO Lew Dickey: "You take our money you run our plays!"

Advice to Management

This is not a hamburger chain. You have talented people. Let them contribute. Take the scores you receive here seriously. You have created major problems with your management styles and decision making. Eventually your bankers will tire of hearing these stories, as you continue to lose $$$.

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

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment.
    Cumulus Media does not place a ceiling on earnings for its Account Executives - there is outstanding earning potential.

    Cons

    Account Executives are not reimbursed for out of pocket expenses, except mileage.
    The digital sales assets are out-dated and our mobile assets have been relinquished to Clear Channel’s I Heart Radio.
    Proprietary software STRATUS and Engage are substandard tools.
    Employee benefits are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    In an industry earning a decreasing share of marketing revenues, please invest in your digital platform and products.
