Account Executive/Outside Sales (Current Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – February 19, 2016
If you are looking for a career it is wise to consider all of your options before choosing this company for your next job. Make sure you have everything in writing and speak with all of the managers before deciding. There is limited opportunity in radio. The turnover is high and most reps last 1-3 months. The salary in not a guarantee.
daily flexibility of schedule that you can come in office in morning, leave and be back later in day, no other benefits
lack of ability to make money, management unwilling to help, job is misrepresented as far as money, gurantees, accounts and expectations, Not a company to work for if you are lookingfor a job for more than 2-3 months
This is one of the best places I have ever worked. There is nothing like the excitement of radio and the enthusiasm of positive co-workers. However, management often squeezes one dry of resources without proper compensation.
Exciting environment, fun culture
Very little opportunity for advancement, non-competitive pay
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – February 1, 2016
Overall It is not a bad place to work. Like any Large Corporation it has its faults. Radio has gotten to homogenized because of the syndication of shows nation wide and has taken all the local flavor out of the local markets. Local creativity is dwindling and I prefer to express myself and be creative.
Promotions & Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 20, 2015
Cumulus is a fun place to work but they do not provide any opportunities to grow nor do they offer raises. I made 8.00/hr working there for 3 years. I went to one of the best schools for the position I was in and they still held me back to grow with the company. They are constantly laying people off and changing things around.
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – November 6, 2015
Great to help local businesses grow through their marketing, using your stations. At the time I was there, the market manager knew very little on advertising, and made the culture very grim. The local sales manager was the savior of the market for sure. Great programming, great promotions, but in the end, they sold!
street team member (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – December 29, 2015
Depeneding on the week, I either cover the front desk or I am at a promotions event. Promotion events are pretty enjoyable you get to mingle with people while giving away prizes .(depending on which event you get assigned to)
normal hours, learn new things while intermingling with people
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Fort Walton Beach, FL – January 9, 2016
Enjoyed meeting all the different types of people that advertise with radio. Loved going to do the promotions. The job was probably a fantastic job before 2008 with business advertising in radio. The year I was in it wasn't the best.
Radio Producer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 27, 2015
If you want to work for a spineless program director, get paid worst than fast food employees, and disrespected by your co-workers...then Cumulus-NY is for you! The station sold itself long ago to substandard ad dollars and only care about ratings. The only staff who matters are the hosts and everyone else is just consequential. While I was lucky enough to get promoted my first year there, I didn't get an increase in salary. I was still making $14/hr! They somehow justified this. In one day I produced a show and then forced me to report on something because of the understaffed news department. There were never enough desks and people had to always share/
Low Salary, Disrespectful to employees, only care about ratings.
Traffic Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – October 25, 2015
A typical day at work is placing commercials on the traffic log for any given time. You learn something new on a daily basis. Management is great. Co-workers are fun to be around. The hardest part of the job is replacing commercials that have been removed from the traffic logs. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and prizes given to staff.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor – July 20, 2015
If you are a sales maven; this is the company for you! Great compensation, wonderful support, and fantastic management. But, if you are not really a sales person, and don't have much sales experience,then stay away.from working in advertising sales for this company.
Very exciting workplace. Lots of sales opportunities for the right type of people.
You really must be a seasoned sales professional to thrive here.
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – January 8, 2016
Their stations are the best in town and it's all because of the people working in in the building. From the sales team and their managers, to the promotions and production staff, to the night crew - everybody loves what they do.
Cumulus Media Albuquerque is a great stepping stone for what I want to do and I have been given a bunch of new opportunities within the company to train and learn a bunch of different aspects of the industry. The people I've worked with have all been incredible and have answered any questions I have. I just wish the pay was better along with having better benefits.
Cumulus media had done a great job in aquiring many different formats to meet the needs of our clients. However, when the rating wars and commercial rates became a major player in the market, we lost the battle. Once rates were lowered beyond market expectations, clients refused to pay higher rates when ratings increased.
I.T. Specialist (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – April 30, 2016
There are some hard-working people at this company that are not appreciated. Most of them have jumped ship since Cumulus took over our group of radio stations. Sexism allowed to run rampant even though women are in charge. Avoid unless you like being treated like a submissive.
Meeting famous musicians once every two years
Horrible mis-management starting at the top; favoritism
Unfortunately people seem to bring too much of their personal lives into this business, but that comes with most work places. Otherwise, I love coordinating with listeners, setting up the events and being the face of the radio station! I really feel like I have a part in my community here.
