Pros

We did have interesting projects that were fun to work on. Unfortunately, there was a considerable amount of us versus them attitude that ran through most of the work going on including defining products and managing projects.

Cons

Lack of career direction given from individual managers. They like for you to work, but don't really provide any growth potential unless you're one of the favored individuals.

Advice to Management

Listen to your members, avoid the politics of "us versus them" teams, and give some creative latitude. And most of all, give those hard working individuals a chance to have their voices heard. Not just those who might have been there from the early days who now want to control everything.

    Pros

    Cutting edge radio that nobody else in the radio business can do
    Great studios and great equipment to work with for the most part
    Great co-workers who work very hard and are very dedicated
    Good benefits compared to a lot of other places
    A great Christmas party every year

    Cons

    Low salaries compared to terrestrial stations and especially to TV jobs that are similar
    Long hours are required with no overtime paid
    Little recognition for producing great radio on a daily basis and little incentive to continue to do that other than to keep a job
    Middle and senior management seem more concerned with not making waves and keeping their jobs than working with the drones that do all the work

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the hard work the troops in the trenches are doing. The senior management does not seem to understand or care how hard these people work.
