    I worked at Katz Media Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with the and solid leadership. The clients and agencies were wonderful too!

    Cons

    Not a ton of growth unfortunately. If there were, I would’ve stayed forever, but it just wasn’t an option unless you moved. There isn’t a ton of money growth either.

    I have been working at Katz Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Friendly coworkers. A good place to start one's media sales career.

    Cons

    Pay is way below market value. Not even close to the cost of living. Diversity isn' t a priority. A breeding ground for mediocre non-pocs failing their way forward.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more. Invest in your employees and don't stifle their growth with outdated promotion practices. Make diversity a priority.

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked with. Managers care about the people who work for them and teams are great

    Cons

    Need to pay the coordinators a little better or provide incentives that they can achieve for extra pay. Commuting cost can really eat into a paycheck.

    The culture of the company is laid back. Great job for high school student or someone out of college trying to figure out their career goals.

    Low pay, job duties, often left in the dark about what is going on within team

    Advice to Management

    Include your sales staff more in everyday activities.

    Pros

    The company has finally restructured itself to meet the challenges of the modern media industry. They’re developing new revenue streams and looking more into the future. The people are amazing and really great to work with.

    Cons

    It’s a legacy media company no matter how they try to position themselves otherwise. Broadcast ad spend declines yearly. Too reliant on political ad dollars to keep the company afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly from the top down. People are often left in the dark for no reason and that creates tension and distrust.

    I worked at Katz Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are nice. Most of the time it's pretty low stress. People have been there a long time so that says something about the integrity of the company as a whole. Not at all a career for the creative mind, but a nice little stable gig in the city.

    Cons

    We don't really need to get into the pay, do we? People are generally very cool and nice but the minute your value to (some of) them is even in the least bit compromised you are done to them. No sense of loyalty in these situations. Even if you're just colleagues, for a truly successful business operation there needs to be loyalty and mutual understanding, no? This is not everyone, but some people definitely put... on a great act at making it seem like they're going to help you succeed and make you feel like part of the team, but don't follow through. No one's prefect though I suppose. The way the office looks, is set up, and the nuances and quirkiness about it is LITERALLY like how you would think an office environment was like in 1973. It's actually pretty hilarious. It's like outside they're building all these great modern buildings around the city and then you walk into Katz and you're like wait is Nixon about to resign?
