Great employees difficult to advance in career
Promotions Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 26, 2017
Working for Entercom is a bittersweet experience. You are offered to be part of the best radio stations in the are; however, the corporate mentality drips down to the biggest and the least jobs in the office. This company focuses on the bottom line, but forgets to give credit to the people that make the company thrive. This mentality is carried down to each worker and mixes in with the work culture. Employees bond over their mutual disdain for day to day processes, but are ever hopeful for the right opportunity at the right time. For this reason, employees are close as radio family, but are fearful and paranoid of any potential coworker friend getting a step ahead, and thereby making their own position obsolete.
I would suggest any driven candidate looking to start a career in radio to consider Entercom, but to understand the considerable amount of time and passion required to be successful.
