I have been working at Townsquare Media full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Townsquare Media is overall good company. They are willing to invest in what they believe will become profitable. The vision of for the digital aspect is impressive. I really do think that the VP's and CEO really want to WIN, digitally.

Cons

Local market GM's need to be monitored closer. The pay is HORRIBLE, if you're on-air. This is not a company to retire with. You will have to apply for food stamps if you are a jock. You will be slammed with extra work and no extra money. Raises? What's that? I've NEVER had a raise, let alone an evaluation for job performance. If you're a jock, there is no accountability, no air checks, only additional clutter to talk about on an already over-sold station. You will work overtime WITHOUT the pay.

Advice to Management

PLEASE whittle down your local market GM's. Find out how they are really treating their employees and demand they at least give job performance evaluations. With all of the numbers of profitability increasing, WHERE is the money to pay your employees a decent salary?

    I have been working at Townsquare Media as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance.
    Paid freelancers on time.

    Cons

    Nasty editors who play favorites.
    Lay you off because of aforementioned favoritism.
    They're a low-budget Buzzfeed, except Buzzfeed is far surperior.
    Take forever to approve articles.
    One editor even plagarized my work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your so-called editors. If people are complaining about him or her, then maybe you should do something about it. I've never met someone so unprofessional in my life!
