    Pros

    Fun work atmosphere and lots of autonomy right from the beginning of the internship. Made some great friends and connections. The job itself was awesome besides the lack of pay, I got to voice commercials that played all throughout Philly.

    Cons

    The whole conglomerate can end up being segregated by station. It felt more like separate radio stations than one unified group.

    Pros

    The Los Angeles cluster of Clear Channel Radio stations -- despite the company's reputation -- was a fantastic place to work. I was surrounded by brilliant, creative individuals who were always quick on their feet, embracing new ideas working to make their organization the best possible.

    Cons

    Being very large and having been acquired by an investment firm caused some rough changes. Some positions were cut. But this is what happens when a company works to become more agile and competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive attitude and the keen eye for talent.

    Pros

    friendliness, cooperation, respectful, enjoyed working for company and had fun.

    Cons

    not enough OT, some people could not work well under pressure, not enough weekends off, should hire more friendlier assistant supervisor and overall liked working there.

    Advice to Management

    Produced good quality work history.

    Pros

    The perks of radio are always there. Concert tickets, free stuff, food, etc (when you can get them and if you're friends with promotions)

    Cons

    We all know the pay is crap and the risk of unemployment is always looming. Plus its corporate radio so you have limited control over what goes over the air.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they're worth. If you keep piling on work, compensate your employees for it and don't assume the fringe benefits will keep them happy.

    Pros

    Perks are endless between concert tickets, great employees, good management. There's never a dull moment and overall the company tries to include employees w/ promotions

    Cons

    Sometimes you can feel like just a "number", and it seems hard to advance within the company unless you are close with management. Also, be prepared to not work a 9-5 schedule. Hours can be at different times.

    Pros

    Great perks: Meet famous people and go to great events. Pretty flexible with your schedule, but they know no one can live off the salary and hours they provide. Great for developing people/ networking skills.

    Cons

    Too many people trying to be boss. Workers very competitive and childish toward each other. There is no team mentality. More worried about the bottom line then any standards of quality. Sales is all that matters. The company cuts budget to ridiculous levels and the product suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to completely reboot the corporate culture.

  11. Local management was handcuffed from corporate policies and procedures.

    Pros

    Radio life is a fast paced, exciting environment. Endless opportunities to develop new business relationships and generate a healthy income.

    Cons

    Focus on best interest for the station(s) rather than best interest for the clients (advertisers). Micro management was a common practice.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge upper management to create a vision focusing on clients success. Their success with campaigns will breed future success rather then continuous attempt to replace lost business partners.
