    I worked at Entercom full-time

    Pros

    20+ of the greatest years of my life. The loyalty and strength within the group was unsurpassed. One big family. The sense of creating a positive environment together with the same goal to be the best we could be to listeners, clients and community. Working hard to achieve success.

    Cons

    It all changed. Poor management decisions. Loss of togetherness/camaraderie. What was a healthy institution for numerous years was destroyed in a matter of months. Very sad to watch. From what I hear, it's making the turn back. I'm thinking that will be a long road. But, very good to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real. Know that, if given the chance, your people have your back and are willing to work hard towards the success of the team. Appreciate. Lead by example.

    I worked at Entercom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the manager made sure that the employer had a good work life balance
    not too much micromanaging
    free food
    cool radio personalities

    Cons

    huge turnover rate
    the sales people were trained to be at each others throat
    sales is more important to them, they don't care about the employees
    if you didn't throw someone under the bus, they would do it to you
    the current owner is very unpleasant
    i had some minor health issues and instead of sympathizing, they were down my throat

    Advice to Management

    maybe care more about the people that work for you rather than the sales that you make

    Pros

    The people that work in the building really care about their jobs and like working in radio. The benefits are the best part about working at this location.

    Cons

    The Team of sales staff, promotions staff, and on-air talent are great...as a Team. Yet the 2 managers in charge are very micromanaging with constant threats that an individual could lose their job at any point in time. As any employee would realize that notion is true in any place of business, managers have gone above and beyond to make it abundantly clear to the Charlotte staff through emails, remarks, and actions of management constantly, and ever so repeatedly. When you walk down the hallway, most employees are unhappy and are frightened that their jobs are constantly in jeopardy. The Charlotte branch of Entercom is the most bizarre and toxic atmosphere I have ever working in for my entire career. The managers are threatening, rude, disrespectful, and just plain unfriendly to work for and with on almost every project. The culture is a "boys club" and is not respectful to women in the workforce, even though one of the stations in the cluster has a target demographic catered to women listeners. The culture is demanding, unforgiving, and lacks any sense of respect for any employee in any department.

    Advice to Management

    It is baffling that the corporate staff of Entercom is letting what is happening in Charlotte happen. It doesn't seem as if they invested in their Charlotte product, with the correct leadership. What should be a fun and friendly atmosphere is in actuality a fearful, anxiety driven, toxic culture stemming from the main office of this market. Please take a closer look at Charlotte, as it is in need of some new leadership. People who work in Charlotte would be willing to work harder to help produce better quality results for this product, if they felt they were treated with respect in return.

    Pros

    Networking, Experience in radio, self driving

    Cons

    Pay, Hours, lack of direction

    Advice to Management

    These people are on the front lines representing your company and brand. Keep them happy by compensating them and sending them to relatable events. Keep an eye on them at events and only promote trusted employees as shift leaders. If not you can lose control of an event fast.
