    I have been working at iHeartMedia full-time

    Pros

    The perks of attending some events.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. They don't allow employees to enjoy all the events, even when they work them like dogs. They don't take care of their employees as they should. Some of the upper management make racist comments. They allow employees to get harassed either sexually or verbally. They have preferential treatment on employees that they consider attractive. They don't uphold themselves to any of the management training HR corporate assigns. They don't adhere to LEGAL breaks without badgering employees. They sweep a lot of the unfair treatment under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    You need to fire a lot of the upper management. You need to pay attention to the hardworking loyal employees and give them the opportunity for growth. The upper management shouldn't have preferential treatment for those that fit their perverted agenda.

    I worked at iHeartMedia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to choose industry of new clients - loved working with mine!

    Cons

    Does not compensate fairly. No growth mindset. Sales operations are 20 years outdated and illogical for 2018. Management seems brainwashed from their 'glory days' of radio and will not open their mind to new and current strategies. I was the only Account Executive under 30 years of age and was let go after closing one of the largest accounts of the year. The commission was then handed off to a veteran AE. The culture and strategy is for 45+. All sales managers are 45-55 years old and their tactics are completely expired. I was warned by internal employees my first day on the job about the toxic environment. Whatever you hear, how horrible it may sound, it is actually true.

    Advice to Management

    Don't patronize recent college graduates or anyone who is younger than you. They are the future and will soon be filling your shoes. Understand who you are selling to, and who their customers are - you will find that many customers are those who are younger than you. To be great at advertising sales you must put yourself in the customers shoes.
