I worked at Clear Channel full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great products in the best cities

Cons

Corporate - Bain Capital - controls everything and everything is a spreadsheet. They no longer care about customer service. Commission plan is the worst in the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retain and recruit talented employees. Relationships are important across all departments - sales - real estate - operations.

    Pros

    Want to teach me their ways. And want me to succeed they way they have succeeded. So far so good

    Cons

    Of course working as a sales rep has its cons but you either learn to work with it and manage your own future financially or you are in the wrong business.

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

    Pros

    You get to work for one of the largest companies in the world. The name "Clear Channel" looks good on paper.

    Cons

    This was once a great company to work for....8+ years ago! It has gradually gone down hill. I wish it could be blamed on the hard economic times, which, yes has contributed to how they treat their employees, but sadly I think it's more about how the company is managed. They once cared about their employees and treated you like family. The perks were once great. Now it's about how much more responsibility they can pile on you, how many more hour you can work and how much faster you can do it all. It's an extremely stressful environment. I always got overlooked for the work and hours I put in. If they dont like you, they will make your life miserable until you leave. They never fire anyone because they dont want to deal with unemployment. The turnover is really high because no one wants to work for a company that treats their employees so poorly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what you once were or the company will go under. Start caring about your employees and treating them with dignity and respect. Or start handing out anxiety medication in your new hire packets, because they are going to need it! Otherwise, you might as well hire robots, because that is the only way the amount of work you demand of your employees will get done without stressing them out and making them constantly sick.
