    The most fun you'll have at a corporate job

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    Prosgreat perks - concerts tickets, sporting events, etc. , Radio People are always a blast!

    ConsBenefits are horrible, No room to "grow" within the company. People will come and go as they seem to hire anyone with a pulse to "sell" radio.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your younger employees for growth opportunities.

    Marketing/Promotions Intern

    Marketing/Promotions Intern (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsI enjoyed getting to sit in meetings and discuss ideas for promotions, etc.

    ConsIt was sometimes the "fetch my coffee" type of internship, and I spent a lot of time doing work like cleaning out closets, etc. Internship also unpaid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInclude interns in brainstorming sessions more!

    Fun Ride If You Adapt

    Project Lead (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsReinventing a company this size isn't an easy task. I've seen some major changes in staffing in my area as well as major vision changes in a short amount of time. In my opinion, it is amazing it has been as great as it is. The company is so huge...so large, and tries to move like it's so small. Seems to work because there are so many talented project managers and respectful leadership. Everyone seems extremely respectful with each other. Great environment!

    Bob Pittman is a great man.

    If you love challenges, there's plenty of challenges to encounter here.

    ConsAlthough dedicated, some developers/system engineers can seem a bit mediocre at the times. The superb often find new jobs working with startup companies. Perhaps this works well in a company as large as this one, where the low level workers are effective being mediocre with superb leadership making it sustainable.

    With the amount, and the way layoffs happen - I feel like I can be let go just as I finish typing this. Maybe this is expected when there is a lot of change going on.

    If you're afraid of change - stay away from this company at the moment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease hire more female employees, seems a bit imbalanced - biased?

    Promotions Intern during college

    Promotions Intern (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsA fun work experience promoting media and entertainment for a major corporation.

    ConsInternships are unpaid. Even without pay, there should be a considerable amount of learning experience offered and full-time employees do not put a focus on giving that to college interns.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Atmosphere, Terrible Upper Management

    Account Executive (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsEnvironment is best in the industry, friendly colleagues and managers always willing to help each other. No traditional cutthroat sales tactics here.

    ConsCompany finances are poor. $21billion in debt, more cuts coming. Stay away for now if you are looking for something long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLaid off a ton of people with no notice. Company spend a lot of money in the wrong places, and the employees pay the price.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
