I worked at iHeartMedia (More than 8 years)

Pros

Getting to work with great station managers and working with amazing co-workers in offices across the country

Cons

hard to advance if you don't come out of the New York corporate office. Competency is irrelevant the person from NY will fill management openings

Advice to Management

Place more value on your employees. Pay them fairly for all the extra hours the AE's devote to your bottom line. AE's shouldn't have to find another job and file their letter of resignation in order to receive a pay raise. Also not classy for the GSM & President to drop the F'bomb on an employee upon their resignation because they leave for a competitor.

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

    Pros

    Getting to work with great station managers and working with amazing co-workers in offices across the country

    Cons

    They do not give a cost of living raise even! They say feel lucky you have a job. You read in the trades and on-line how the upper management is getting $$$ or a end of year bonus and you are going into debt working very long hours just to be worried if you have a job the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who help you make it happen and reward them with a raise.

    I have been working at iHeartMedia as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to be creative and help a major company redefine itself. Despite its size and complexity, successful employees can make major differences that impact the business and make improvements.

    Working amongst very smart, hardworking and creative team members is energizing. In addition, the entire industry is fun and in the midst of change. Being amongst those who lead change is always rewarding.

    Cons

    You must be willing to work hard, think creatively and work in a very lean environment. But that's only a negative if it doesn't suit you.

    Like most VC funded corporations there is some risk. You must be capable of getting it right the first time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue hiring the best talent.
