Could be a great place to work, but isn't
Programming (Former Employee) – Windsor, CO – April 30, 2017
Everything is there for this workplace to be amazing-- the casual environment, the amazing experiences (meeting rock stars!), but management, compensation, and a lack of understanding of employees gets too in the way.
Raises are not offered to those despite years and years of hard work and formal requests, so make sure you're coming in at a number you're comfortable at for years to come. Management is disorganized and, to be honest, a little shady in their business practices. Money is seen as king-- which, we get it, it's important-- but radio and the quality we're putting out each day should be the most important thing, to me.
Staffing a station takes months, if not longer. On-air talent doesn't last very long and is hard to work with (the egos are INSANE, they can make your life very difficult), but management doesn't care as long as they show up every day. Talent also switches shifts like crazy so listeners end up confused and ratings suffer. No one likes to deal with conflict so in-office issues are left not dealt with and problems simmer under the surface.
The turnover rate here is high and the GM is disrespected across the community. Use this company as a stepping stone/resume builder, and nothing else.
Cool experiences, freedom with daily schedule, casual environment
No opportunities for growth, terrible management, lack of professionalism
