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

Pros

The product itself, radio and TV programming/marketing is fun and challenging. There are some talented people in the organization

Cons

The home office is relentlessly fixated on maximizing profits to the detriment of the product. Corporate made the statement several times: "We are in the business of selling advertising. Not entertainment." and this mindset hurts the company and contributes to its shrinkage in use.

Advice to Management

Hire some radio product experts and give people reasons for listening to on-the-air radio. And get back to 12 minutes an hour of commercials. 22 minutes an hour is way too much. You are driving people to their Ipods.

    I have been working at iHeartMedia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Radio used to be so much fun and was very rewarding but not any more. There are really no jobs left and those that are really don't pay like they used to.

    Cons

    Staffing is at an all time low, morale is completely gone, everyone knows that it is all over. Really very sad now.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen so why bother.

    I worked at iHeartMedia part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Food, drinks, tickets to concerts and events. There really isn't that much to say, it really is that bad.

    Cons

    Too many managers that never show up to work. Lack of communication and consistency. Managers are more worried about their own job and bottom line to care about a human life. Working the jobs of 3 people for half of one person's salary. Every CC station is a sinking ship. Get off now. Even if you are friendly with your boss and management, you will still get fired. The benefits are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    You're too late on I heart radio. Hire more women in management positions.
