Not many opportunities. Horrible Pay.
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 9, 2018
Hard to move up and advance in your career...company overloads on part time workers when certain positions could be fulltime. Not many mentors around or people who care to help. Pay for part timers is absolutely horrible along with the hours. Some management feels like they are above you and will disrespect you with how they communicate or treat you.

The work environment is like crabs in a bucket.
Pros
Co-workers, experience
Cons
Pay, management, hours, comunication

Horrible Managment/Awful Work Environment
Assistant Producer Intern (Former Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 6, 2018
If you're looking to move forward with a radio career, I HIGHLY recommend you look at other companies before looking at Entercom Boston. You will be asked to work far beyond the scope of your position for no pay. You may as well go flip burgers, it would pay you more and you know what you're doing every day. Everyone around you is out for themselves, if someone is offering you something, there is most certainly a catch or they have something to gain for offering. Add to that the fact that "management" literally has no idea what they are doing or how to manage people/communicate with employees, at least on the programming/promotions side of things. You will also have no hope of career advancement, want to be on air? The PD will tell you to go work somewhere else, while hiring callers to be on air. So, if you want to work for a company that makes you dread coming into work every day, Entercom is the place for you!
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Poor management, pay, communication, work hours

Making radio is the best but its hard work
Executive Producer, Co-Host (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 18, 2018
As is often the case with daily top 40 radio shows the hours are long so you better love radio if you want to work on a show. The best part is creating content that allows you to get instant feedback from the audience.

Has potential, needs to reevaluate leadership team
Integrated Marketing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 4, 2018
Upper Management needs to build morale within their teams and showcase more positivity and energy themselves. Management needs to be professional in their demeanor.
Pros
You are given autonomy, get the job done, and they will not be on your back.
Cons
Morale, leadership

You Are 100% Replaceable Mentality
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles County, CAAugust 28, 2018
I worked at AMP in LA for almost 2 years. I would get a "promotion" every 4-6 months that came with more learning and responsibility but never with any pay raise- that's not a promotion. They have no money, they are struggling. JACK FM is the only Entercom station not underperforming.

The people are soooo fun! But I would NOT recommend this job unless you are in school. They pay minimum wage and will always give you part time, even if you're full time, they'll tell you to clock in at 39 hours instead of 40 so they dont have to give you benefits. Welcome to America!
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
The pay, dead end job

Overworked and Underpaid
Promotions Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 29, 2018
In this position you will be overworked and severely underpaid for the amount of work you do. Not only will you be underpaid, you will be underappreciated by the entire staff, especially by upper management. There are some fun perks to this job like getting to work with artists very, very occasionally, but most of the time you are sitting in the office doing paperwork. You will be forced to work most weekends with no extra pay. This is not an 8:30 to 5:30 job. They will tell you that if you get your work done you will have flexible in office hours, but this is not true. You will get reprimanded if you are late to work by even one minute.
Cons
Overworked, Underpaid, Underappreciated

working here sounds cooler than it is.
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIJuly 23, 2018
Working here seemed like a really cool opportunity- 3 major radio stations, free concert tickets... and that's about it. The pay was garbage, the management was worthless, there was no CRM set up for sales teams, no training, no coaching, no goal setting, the amount of dollars for a "great" close is laughable. I learned nothing here besides patience and how to work with bad managers. The turnover here was outrageous. By the time I was 6 months in, nearly the entire group of people who worked on the sales team were replaced by new people. I only stayed as long as I did because I was relocating to a new city and had to wait to move.
The only good part is that the job was effortless, so you don't need to put many hours in outside of a typical work-day.
Pros
sometimes free concerts
Cons
awful pay, awful management

Depressing
Promotions Assistant (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNApril 4, 2018
The management at Entercom is terrible!! They have favorites and will make you feel terrible if you're not one. You get paid minimum wage. You're there the earliest and stay the latest. Treated and called interns and do the jobs that others simply don't want to do. They criticize you more than they compliment you. They will make you work outside wether it's -20 degrees or nearly 110 degrees (I've done both). I still work there by the way so I'm not saying this because I got fired or doing this out of spite. I would never recommend working there to anyone! It's a waste of time and no chance of career advancement. It started out as fun. Management has changed and it has been going down hill and shows no sign of stopping. The management is just really really terrible! You're treat just so disrespectful. You have to pay for parking everyday while the"more important, better paid" employee's get parking passes. It truly is depressing.
Pros
Very very rare perks (ticket to a concert or sporting event)
Cons
Short to no breaks, No benefits, Terrible work environment, Awful management, Random hours

Big/Little Company
Morning Show Host (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOMarch 27, 2017
Decent company to work for. They tend to be commitee driven at times which takes the spontaneity out of promotions and hurts in the ratings process. The local manager seems to adhere to certain formats and doesn't focus on stations that
don't cater to his interests.
