    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!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at iHeartMedia full-time

    Pros

    If you are someone who is impressed by famous people, you'll be exposed to many.

    Cons

    Completely rudderless ship as far as content planning goes. No clear mission given to mid level managers. VPs are so busy managing up that they have no time or gumption to manage their staff. Bain Capital thugs wander the halls looking for ROI opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Beware those with easy answers.

    Current Employee - Promotions Assistant in Independence, OH

    I have been working at iHeartMedia part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is upbeat, busy, and fun. Not a job for those who want to just sit at a desk and punch numbers all day. You need the drive to be out in the community repping the stations and making connections with listeners.

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage and hours are not a set schedule. This is not the only job you can rely on to support yourself. Not much room for advancement either.

      I worked at iHeartMedia part-time

      Pros

      It was a cool job, mostly left alone

      minimum wage and wanted in and out as quick as possible. 1 hr days

      Advice to Management

      Care more about who runs broadcasts, like how much money did you make?? and only want to pay out a measly $9 .... It's costs me $12 in gas round trip and $30 for a sitter...

      Cons

      Very tough to get merit-based increase, certain departments' senior level management don't have a good sense of company goals and its apparent

      Advice to Management

      Value your talent, and keep the most valuable assets by encouraging smart, hard work instead of scrambling to not lose people later on. Join the modern world and provide maternity/paternity leave.
