I have been working at Radio One full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Meeting celebrities, the opportunity to network and the relaxed environment

Cons

Little to no room for growth, no raises, not family friendly, they treat you like a number instead of a valued employee even when you give outstanding service, they expect you to choose your job over any other aspect of your life. They have no understanding when it comes to your own family. They also hardly ever give raises and when you do receive one, it's literally pennies every 3 to 4 years. It's nearly impossible to keep up with the rise in the economy with this company.

Advice to Management

Ask your employees what you can do to improve their work experience and provide it, within reason. If you have good, hard working and trust worthy employees don't run them into the arms of another company by making them feel like a number and allow your employees to flourish and grow. Train current employees if they apply for a position instead of hiring externally.

    I worked at Radio One part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always meeting new people, always something different everyday, felt like a mini-celebrity. Co-workers were great, creative, out-going people.

    Cons

    Pay was horrible; management was short-sighted, refusal to try something new and flat out incompetent. You have to be family, a friend, or a serious ass-kisser to get ahead at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside of the box; radio is a fracturing medium...in saying that, there is still room to carve out your own niche and audience. Stop doing the same thing that worked 25 years ago...

    I have been working at Radio One part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meet a lot of people who can help you get out of the part time positions.schedule is pretty flexible. you gain a lot of experience because you do work heavy hours in the warmer seasons. job enables you to network a lot.

    Cons

    Financially unstable. Hours are very unstable. there are heavy seasons and light seasons. You MUST have a second job if you live on your own. The pay is bad and the labor is a lot compared to the amount you get paid. hours are random. you never know the exact days or times. youre scheduled as events roll in so planning your outside life can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    promote from within. Dont try to guilt employees into staying at this job. the pay is horrible and no one can work this job forever. this is more a job you have while in school. dont expect employees to stay here when you cant offer them more.
