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

    Pros

    -Sales Manager and National Sales Director are wonderful and help you meet your goals - Flexible with PTO days - Working at a local new station provides credibility to the Santa Barbara Community - Working with local clients helps you see the direct impact to the local community

    Cons

    - Pay is minimum and not enough to sustain oneself in Santa Barbara unless you are a senior employee - Communication between department heads is inconsistent - The building in itself and the "technologies" we use are dated and need to be upgraded

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in your employees by increasing wage and providing better benefits

    I worked at KEYT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with pretty awesome people. They're very nice and friendly.

    Cons

    It is an extremely stressful environment and you can very easily take the stress home with you. The level of stress may likely never go away at this place.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to try to make the place not so chaotic and have somewhat of a system for the way things are done. Everything is scattered and there is no consistency. And please focus on training more and choosing better people to be trainers.
