      Great company, awful management.

      Pros

      Great people in mid level positions. Company owns some of the most well recognized radio properties.

      Cons

      Zero money for raises. Some people have been waiting for a raise for 2-3+ years. Management is awful. Not only are there sometimes 3-4 people that manage each department, only 1 of those people will have a clue what they are actually doing, but they will ALL tell you what to do. Kissing up to management will get you promoted, not performance. Do minimal work, kiss up, get promoted. Do the most work, mind your business, never move up. Sellers and management are so afraid of losing their positions that they create unnecessary stress and pressure in the office.

      Great access to the nations top advertisers, agencies and broadcasters. Strong assets in local, national radio as well as television and digital.
