    I have been working at iHeartMedia full-time

    Pros

    Strong engineering management cultivates young talents. Autonomy and openness to try new things keeps stacks current (Scala, React, Kotlin, Swift, etc all in the cloud). Digital team has access to the rest of the company. There is a great chance that the code you wrote today will be in front of millions tomorrow. Lots of training opportunities and social clubs to help develop both skills and relationships.

    Cons

    Moving fast means some tech debt, without discipline you can rack up a lot. Benefits could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recruit the best of the best!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at iHeartMedia part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, relaxed wardrobe, location, amenities, perks

    Cons

    poor management, little opportunity given to tenured employees to advance, no salary raises

    Advice to Management

    In the almost four years I was an employee, I received no reviews on my job performance. Instead as a part-time employee I was given a lot of responsibiity with no adjustment to pay or even given full time opportunity, despite proving my abilities to handle the work given.
