Pros: live and local opportunities, progressive on air strategies
Cons: negotiations, money, and bonus structre
Entercom believes in live and local talent, which is a major plus in an industry that has eliminated so much of it. They give you opportunities to grow, if earned, and have very smart people to help you do so.
They're biggest downfall is pay. They tend to nickel and dime programming staff, not only locally but from corporate as well. Their on air bonus structure is probably a good business idea, but can be very difficult for the employee.They also are very difficult to negotiate with, often presenting take it or leave it scenarios. Again, probably a good business model, but it's very tough on employees.
