    I worked at Entercom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing team and coworkers, people are passionate about their jobs.

    Cons

    Poor pay, long hours, extremely demanding and very little room for personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees with more than an employee of the month tag. Bonuses, or goals to work toward would be very motivating.

    I have been working at Entercom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to concert/event tickets, really great people, get to develop really creative marketing solutions for our clients

    Cons

    Hard to turn off when you get home, currently lots of consolidation so people may be forced to take on tasks they have no experience in and are not compensated for their new responsibilities, if you aren't a salesperson it's tough for management to see your value or to get any sort of recognition

    Advice to Management

    Value your non-sellers. Be sure to pay these people a livable wage. The sellers drive revenue, but the support staff is working behind the scenes to make their big dreams a reality.

    Radio can be a fun business. Normal working hours and lots of autonomy

    Zero structure, no vision, Don't try to do anything new or innovative. Just show up, be mediocre and earn your money. Gray cube farm life with zero resources to do the job right.
