    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.

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time for more than 8 years

    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.

    I worked at Clear Channel for more than a year

    Pros

    Definitely enjoyed working here, was able to work promotions with some great people. Solid bosses that help out and enough autonomy to find your own groove.

    Cons

    A lit bit low pay for promotion and marketing. The job was part-time, so it would have been great to be able to advance to full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow for movement between different fields within the company.

    Pros

    The resources are amazing and very useful in achieving work related goals. The people I worked with were awesome.

    Cons

    There are times when corporate dictates mandatory projects, which is fine, however the notice is always very short and at times unorganized and lacking details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being supportive and interactive with staff.

    As an intern, it's been a fulfilling experience.

    I have been working at Clear Channel as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone within the company is friendly and interested in teaching me something. I would definitely recommend taking this internship if presented with the opportunity.

    Cons

    Other than the technology at the office I haven't encountered any serious cons. Since I do work online it'd be nice to have a faster computer, but it's not that big of a deal.

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    They are very forward thinking in their approach to business. I LOVED my senior managers and really enjoyed working with my staff.

    Cons

    They make frequent employee cuts and put that work on to those that are left. I felt like nobody's position was secure regardless of how well they did their job.
