We have sales meetings every morning for an hour and we go over objections in the field or better practice methods. Then we have a phone block three times a week to set up appointments. We have two managers and each is assigned a team and they have to manage their team. We typically have one on one every Friday. Co workers are competitive. I love learning new things everyday in our meetings but the down fall is finding leads to call on that aren't a waste of time
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
We are a great media network to work for that offers live broadcasts all over the metro area. Our radio shows appeal to classic rock music lovers and our sports talk radio provides the ultimate experience for the true sports fan.

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.

always busy, helping people with tickets and other prizes, management was great, fun, laid back environment, hardest part was having a long line of people waiting to get their prize, and the best part of the day was knowing i made someones day better.
Producer Intern (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 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.
Integrated Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 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.
High new direct commission; great morning show.
Health insurance; lack of communication; lack of resources; no sales support
Sr. Account Executive (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – April 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.
5 stations to sell
Band insurance, no rights for employees and terrible management
Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania Account Executive (Former Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – March 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.
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.
Good people to work with really like co-workers, good support staff
Sales (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – March 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.
Great Staff, Programming easy to work with, creative team players.
unreasonable non-competes longer than 90 days it's unconstitutional..
Benefits Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 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.
