Fun getting my first Start in Radio
Board Operator / Promotion (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 25, 2017
Its my first gig in radio and I had an internship here so I am just lucky to have received the job offer from them.
The hardest part is the long overnights but you get used to it.
The best is everyday I learn new things about the job

Fun place to work
Account Executive/Outside Sales (Former Employee) –  Ft. Walton Beach, FLMay 16, 2017
I enjoyed my year at Cumulus in the sales department. We had a great team and lower management was interested in your success. In addition, working in the local community gave you a sense of pride. Also, the 5 radio stations you had to offer was a plus.

stressful workplace
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYMay 12, 2017
There is a lot of potential in radio ad sales, however it is extremely stressful. This is a 100% commission based job. There is not a lot of training or help from management.

Great Company

A fun environment, even early in the morning
Producer Intern (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIApril 12, 2017
I had a great time working for Gravy and Rachael during mornings. It was great to get first-hand experience of the inner workings of a radio show. Everyone in the workplace is friendly and willing to teach new things.

Account Executive Role
Integrated Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 12, 2017
High new direct commission. Management needs improvement since going through restructure. CRM and lead/account ownership is confusing. Some employees are treated different then others. Promotions department is unorganized, very difficult to work with. Digital department is good and has cross device capabilities. Health insurance is horrible. Company stock is extremely low right now.
Pros
High new direct commission; great morning show.
Cons
Health insurance; lack of communication; lack of resources; no sales support

Steer clear of Cumulus Huntsville
Sr. Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALApril 10, 2017
Quick turn over. Lazy VP of Sales. Unqualified BM/HR. If you do decided to take a position make sure you negotiate an account list. Sales does not have paid vacation. The medical insurance is a complete joke. Vision and dental are ok. Do not sign the non-compete. The Huntsville market is a very negative and toxic environment.
Pros
5 stations to sell
Cons
Band insurance, no rights for employees and terrible management

Sales Representative/Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Green Bay, WIApril 4, 2017
Cool to write radio commercials and meet the on-air personalities. High stress, solely commission based. Takes a long time to secure stable income, but even then you don't know your take home pay
Pros
flexible, fun
Cons
commission based

Perks are great but the company needs some work
Assistant Promotional Director/Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CAApril 4, 2017
There doesn't seem to be a high value for their employees. However, the community of people inside a cluster of radio stations is pretty awesome. I will miss some of it.

Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Wilkes-Barre, PAMarch 29, 2017
Cumulus is a great opportunity for people looking for their first opportunity to get into outside sales. The compensation structure is one that slowly moves you into an all commission income. There are no sales territories so the big fish have generally already eaten all of the edible fish in the pond.

Best Job Ever!
National/Local Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCMarch 23, 2017
The overall vibe of the office was great! I got along with everyone including upper management. There's always employee recognition, which came from the market manager. The health benefits sucked but at least you were covered. Everyone is always willing to help out when someone needs help. The perks were great too. If I didn't have to move I would have never of left the job, it was amazing.
Pros
Upper Management, events, perks, employee recognition
Cons
Health Benefits

Good people to work with really like co-workers, good support staff
Sales (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 22, 2017
Making positive changes programming get better just not enough consistency. Everyone helps each other and good team.
Sales people are not paid millions of dollars like football players. The company should institute company wide policy no non competes over a 90 day period for sales personnel.
Pros
Great Staff, Programming easy to work with, creative team players.
Cons
unreasonable non-competes longer than 90 days it's unconstitutional..

old school attitude
Promotional Activities Intern (Former Employee) –  Eugene, ORMarch 14, 2017
Most people were too concerned about loosing their jobs to help each other out. Bosses were very old school (just get it done). Would not recommend for long term employment

Benefits Specialist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 9, 2017
Work environment, brilliant colleagues, interesting projects and products.
Company culture and management style are very pleasant, helping every single employee improving continuously.
Cons
Work-life balance can be a bit challenging. The company is also moving very fast, which means re-organizations impacting divers teams are kind of constantly expected.
Advice to Management
Senior Management should sometimes be a bit more humble and remember where they came from. Reaching senior leadership positions does not mean you know it all and everybody always has more to learn.
