    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people that I worked with as they seem to hire people with very similar personalities. They try and create an overall fun place to be.

    Cons

    Management definitely had their favorites, and this very select group of people got away with EVERYTHING. I always likened it to high school bullies who knock your lunch tray out of your hands. That's how they made you feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know some of your employees better outside of your favorite circle of people.

    Co-workers are great, but top-level management doesn't care about rank and file

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great, professional people to work with. Great assets to pull from.

    Cons

    A sense of doom hovers over the place, like you don't know who will be downsized next. Low pay and a sense that it's that way because management is top-heavy. Too many dictates come from corporate, which is frustrating to local managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let local managers have more control. Please do something about morale because it gets lower and lower every day.

    Former Employee - Account Executive in El Paso, TX (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Attending events for customers, first to try new restaurants in the city, meeting business partners in different industries, great for resume building to get to know business owners.

    Cons

    100% commission after 3 months is stressful and a bit ridiculous, there are constant changes in the commission structure and upper management is always changing as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your AE's are on 100% commission, there is no need to micromanage your team with sign in sheets to see where they are going and what time they will return.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern

    Pros

    Great company culture, nice people, fun events, "family" environment, feel valued by co-workers, solid internship experience

    Cons

    No upward mobility, company isn't doing too great overall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember WHY people listen to radio in the first place - the personalities. Stop making all CC stations the same nationwide or you'll lose your audience entirely to satellite radio, Pandora or Spotify

    Interns Need Professional Development

    Former Intern - Promotions Intern in Chicago, IL (US)
    Former Intern - Promotions Intern in Chicago, IL (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule was really flexible. Had the opportunity to completely manage promotional events.

    Cons

    Interns are mostly just free labor. The position didn't offer much in the way of professional development and overall it was extremely easy. Most of the jobs I did as an intern were just busy work. Not that busy work is all bad but it just wasn't challenging at all and I learned essentially nothing from the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some kind of professional development for interns. I think casually showing interns Clear Channels marketing department or strategy would go a long way in satisfying current interns and attracting future interns to the company.

    Pros

    Good environment to learn in, the best company there is for working in radio, friendly employees outside of management

    Cons

    Known in the industry as "cheap channel" and they follow through - raises are a joke if you get one at all, benefits have gone downhill the last 4 years (from United Healthcare to their own "Clear Channel Health Plan" for less coverage and more money), upper management (C-Suite especially) is COMPLETELY out of touch with their employees other than people in leadership positions, completely understaffed for the amount of work people do in certain divisions and are made to feel as if they are as interchangeable as a piece of furniture.

    Pros

    Always changing. Fast paced. Results driven.

    Cons

    No raises. Cost cutting is hurting the products. Talented people are leaving the company and the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are the product. Have to devise a plan to be visible in the local markets

    Pros

    Great place to learn quickly and learn valuable skills. The people are some of the best and smartest I've ever worked with. There is ample training and investment in equipment. The IT projects are challenging and impactful.

    Cons

    There are revenue challenges preventing the company from showing employees that they are valued. There haven't been bonuses or raises in a number of years. There seems to be a lot of turnover in leadership which causes ripple effects and some lurching around between priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more emphasis on taking care of existing employees. There is a lot of perception that new employees can get exorbitant salaries while loyal employees are restrained from getting advances beyond a small percentage increase. Spread it around some. Many employees would love to feel like they are a part of the same culture you cats in Manhattan enjoy. The sizzle reals are nice, but when you trip on the carpet walking back to your cube it's hard to get stoked about how glamorous your company is.
