iHeartMedia is full of a good amount of young professionals who are fun to work with. The feel at this place is pretty serious for such a non-serious radio provider. If you don't prove that you deserve to be there, you're out.
iHeart Media is a fun cool place to work, but the sales department can be stressfull. The payment method is on a drawer method. You negotiate a monthly rate, and from that rate you will be paid every month; however, the money being paid is a "loan". Your drawer gets paid back ot he company when you make sales.
HR (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 1, 2017
I love the people I work with, but the lack of career advancement is a problem with this company. Also, the financial stability seems to dictate bonus payouts, performance pay and promotions w/compensation commensurate with experience and market.
Autonomy; People; Name recognition
Healthcare, Financial Stability of Company, Lack of Pay Raises; Career Advancement is rare
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 1, 2017
Fair wages, good benefits, and steady work. Management was ok, didn't really interact with staff much. Company offered many incentives, annual company picnic, Christmas party, thanksgiving luncheon, annual bonus. I left because of the commute. Would definitely work there again.
Fun place to work but very demanding and not a place where you can turn it off
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – July 20, 2017
I spent a year working with iHeartMedia and loved a lot of my job. So many cool perks, amazing culture and awesome people. However, this is a job that is 24/7 (depending on the role you work) and is very demanding.
Great people, great management (for the most part), great benefits
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – July 11, 2017
Its interesting handling Information Technology for iHeart Media Denver because I get to be around radio personalities all day long. They are some of the most comical, interesting, entertaining people to support technically. I hear music, jokes and laughter all day, which makes this gig incredibly fun. Things get serious when there are technical issues and it requires blocking out hysterical panic attacks when things go sideways. Still, I love this group, including the sales people, my red headed step children. Managing and maintaining just over 250 Audio, Software and Administrative servers, as well as network, wi-fi, printers, conference rooms, streaming kiosks, news, weather and sports for a few hundred people is no joke.

Account Executive (Current Employee) – Vestal, NY – July 11, 2017
A very competitive company, Radio is fast paced fun atmosphere. People of iHeart are wonderful and bond like a second family. Very structured for an outside sales position w/o vehicle compensation. Daily mandatory meetings making it difficult to be in the field selling.
The perks are endless / the people are wonderful
Compensation low, every day meetings A.M & P.M consistantly pulled out of the field selling
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – July 11, 2017
Sales Manager is the ultimate micro-manager. Very difficult to work with and loves to get in your face. The culture is tense and morale when I left was very low. The most enjoyable part on this job was working out of the office and staying away from the pressure.
Truly enjoyed working for this company. The station manager was phenomenal and cared for his staff. Very supportive. Radio advertising is a difficult career to begin with but can be very lucrative. Be prepared to call, call, call on clients (sales 101).
Not the best environment for entry-level candidates
Sales Support (Former Employee) – Rockville, MD – July 5, 2017
Not the best working environment for entry-level candidates. Your superiors treat workers differently based on rank. The top superior was often pompous and arrogant. Seemed like the sales team cared more about making money than they did about the well-being of their employees. There was no structure or direction in some of the newer positions so at times it seemed like you were doing nothing. Many of the meetings consisted of workers talking about each other and going off topic.
No structure or direction in positions, Excessive unnecessary meetings, workers would complain about other workers
