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

    Pros

    The facility was modern and up to date, and people were great to work for and with.

    Cons

    It's great to be protected by union, but the pay is unrealistically low to live on...especially for the first year.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more flexible when promoting from within. They can only increase your salary 10%, even if you were promoted from part time on air to management...just 10%.

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

    Pros

    Great perks like tickets to fun events, private concerts, etc. Great customers for the most part, and overall fun, energetic environment. This is a great place for either young, driven singles with no kids or someone with older kids (like high school/college) who don't need much time or involvement. (I put this same topic under pro's and cons so read both)

    Cons

    Low employee value (you're just a revenue producer, not a living breathing human.) Lack of good sales training, inconsistent support based on whoever you happen to have as a manager, HIGH DRAMA environment (if you loved petty, immature, high school drama and gossip then you'll love it here.). If you have elementary school kids or (God forbid) younger kids then this will be VERY hard if you're the primary caretaker. Say goodbye to work/life balance if you have young kids. The long hours, time, stress, and inflexibility are killers when it comes to regular family life, sick kids, sports, doctor's appointments, etc. In addition to the regular long hours needed to be successful, you'll also have client dinners and/or client events, and station events on weeknights and weekends. They are always fun but very demanding of time when you have kids at home.

    Advice to Management

    BETTER, more thorough sales training, clearer communication of expectations and not just budget expectations. Kill the inter-office politics and drama and get rid of toxic personalities in management, traffic, and on the sales floor. Needs more consistent manager training so managers provide a consistent level of support to new hires and reduce the amount of "other" work all the managers do so they can focus on supporting sellers. Also, lay off the stupid sales gimmicks and initiatives. There's too many going on at once and it's hard to know what's important and what isn't.

    Management doesn't understand how radio works.

    Promote the right employees and pay them well. Do not be afraid to drop those employees who come to collect a check.
