Promotions Representative (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 16, 2015
It is very hard to get in and move up but the experience of working there is great. You work interesting events and get many fringe benefits but the pay is minimal and advancement opportunities are few and far between. That being said I had some really incredible experiences working for the Sports Hub Street Team that I would not have had otherwise. This is a great job to get into the industry but expecting to work there full time is generally not realistic.
Receptionist/Sales Asst (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 6, 2015
I LOVED working for CBS Radio. Great benefits such as; free concert tickets, DVDs, etc. The management was great as well as all my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was when you would get extremely busy and its just you. The best part was the work environment.
Fast paced, ever evolving media products and opportunities to form partnerships with a myriad of businesses locally and nationally
Account Manager (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 29, 2015
A typical day at work is not typical in any way. Each day is different with new challenges and opportunities to forge partnerships with businesses and match our assets to theirs to help them increase sales and branding objectives. The hardest part of the day is filling out the paperwork and the easiest part is the face to face meetings.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, Illinois – June 28, 2015
Overall management doesn't really care for the little people, unless you are making them some sort of money--talent, AE's-- they don't care for the administrative team. They will fire people and pile on work to the team without any monetary compensation. I guess it's good to get your foot in the door if you are a recent grad, and it looks good in a resume-but other then that-- it's best you start looking for a new job soon after your first year there.
State and Local Tax Intern (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 17, 2015
As an intern, you are responsible for completing estimates and returns. All the information for completing them is provided for you. We only enter in the information properly and have it reviewed by managers. Sometimes we do apportionment. Many times, we have to look through governmental documents for compliance with the tax law.
Exciting and Inspiring position and work environment.
Promotions Coordinator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – June 3, 2015
A typical work day includes writing proposals to artist management and record labels to facilitate on-air promotional opportunities and working directly with sales department to create and implement client based marketing opportunities. In summary, working on promotional concepts to expand our brand, client and customer relationships. I have learned a vast amount of Marketing strategies which align with different aspects of our business such as on-air contesting, on-site event planning and on-line marketing including E-mail, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. Coworkers are enthusiastic and ready to assist in the development of new programs. Challenges include working with Legal Teams and CBS Corporate to implement forward thinking strategies (aka getting past the "red tape" so to speak). Working for a large corporation can have drawbacks but also many rewards including large span outreach and broader communication among markets. The most enjoyable aspect of my position is working directly with programming and sales to bring new marketing and promotional concepts to fruition.
productive fun place with a good learning environment
Administrative assistant/ Customer service (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 1, 2015
I learned how to work with a very diverse group of people, as well as how to effectively resolve technical problems. Staying on top of current developments that might impact my field. How to prioritize issues by level of importance.
Production Designer (Current Employee) – San Francisco – May 5, 2015
This job is very important here at CNET. A wonderful place to work at and the people here are phemnomenal. Everyone is willing to help you out or guide you to where you need to go. The company has a great head on it's shoulders and does a great job with updating us with what's going on in the company quarterly.
Director of IT (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 28, 2015
I found my experience at CBS Radio to be a great one. From my direct report (General Manager) all the way to the Account Executives, everyone was amazing. It was like family.
There was no such thing as a typical day as each one was different that posed new challenges. I like that a lot because it not only keeps it interesting but it opens yourself to new learning opportunities.
I rated Job Security with 2 stars because of the volatility of the radio industry. I thought I would be there for years to come but within 1 year they were 1 million over budget and started cutting jobs. Mine was one of the many.
