    I have been working at Reach Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly/Family-like Environment
    Control over your career/It's what you decide to make of it
    Gain ample exposure to new areas
    Great work life balance!

    Cons

    More responsibility beyond your job description (sometimes overwhelming)

    Advice to Management

    The company should consistently re-evaluate its own goals on both the macro and micro levels in order to not be pulled in so many different directions.

    I worked at Reach Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great brand and image with The Tom Joyner Morning Show. Most of the people are very friendly. It looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Very poor work/life balance and hardly any vacation time. There are no sick days, you need to use your limited vacation time for that. Management was rude and bullying. You can do a great job but they still make you feel like dirt.

    Advice to Management

    I would never consider working there again because of the way that I was treated. Management needs to be held accountable for the way certain managers treat people in the company. ANYONE, who treat someone with severe disrespect needs to go.

    I worked at Reach Media (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. At the end of the day everyone feels like family.
    You perform a lot of duties in and out of your position. Which makes you a well rounded individual. You work independently without upper management oversight.
    You have to become the expect in your field.

    Cons

    No additional compensation for performing additional duties outside of your position.
    Sense you have to become the expert in your field their is no where to go for guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees because everyone to loves to work for the company and has its best interest. Upper management should appreciate lower management contribution to the team.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to get good experience, making the company a decent choice for young professionals .

    Cons

    Poor organization, too many people working in silos. Unreasonable expectations versus available resources. Training opportunities, such as attending conferences and related employee development were non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate strategy and planning more effectively to rank and field. Offer greater training opportunities. Adopt more of a corporate structure with regard to overall management rather than flying by the seat of the pants.

    Pros

    The culture is fun, inviting, inclusive and family oriented. There are many opportunities to learn and grow. Managers provide guidance and take the time to know their team.

    Cons

    The events can be very exhausting. They require a lot of hard work and long hours but it is worth it in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Create more entry level jobs and attempt to expand the business. Reach even more consumers and compensate your interns even it's a small amount.

    Pros

    Because of its affiliation with Radio One and the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Reach Media has excellent brand equity in the entertainment media market. There are a few perks when it comes to event access. Also, you can call it birth by fire. If you can survive life at Reach there are very few situations that can break your spirit.

    Cons

    I can only speak for interactive media, and as a whole it is neglected as a major revenue generator for Reach as a company. Too often interactive is asked to spin straw into gold--and within an unrealistic time frame. Also, there is a level of unprofessionalism that circulates throughout the office. There have been times people were literally screamed at in meetings and publicly embarassed. Executives at the top are often too far removed from the daily workings and don't have a big picture of what interactive media should be.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in an outside firm to evaluate corporate structure and take their advice on how to foster employee morale, manager-employee relations, human resource protocol, career paths, and employee education. Get rid of the infighting, corporate posturing and nepotism. Seek out professionals who are QUALIFIED for the jobs they have, not just friends of friends.
