Working for Radio One has been one of the most trying employment experiences I've ever had. Management is less than supportive and often find ways to discourage rather that uplift their employees. I was often given more responsibilities due to my large skill set and talent, however I was never offered a pay increase above minimum wage. While I appreciate the experience working as a substitute on-air host, Public Affairs Producer, and audio engineer; at some point you have to recognize your worth and move on when you aren't being promoted. I would not recommend working for this company if you are a seasoned professional. Working here is only ideal if you're looking for an unpaid internship just to gain experience.
