    Good place to gain experience at the start of anyone's career, but not much room for growth.

    I worked at Clear Channel Outdoor full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the market, the work environment can be tight-knit and great for networking. Hard working staff. Good for learning if you're open to it. Flexible time-off and work-from-home policy allows for some balance.

    Cons

    Lack of training and upward mobility. Frequent fluctuation in upper management creates a sense of instability. Compensation below average.

    Pros

    The office is clean and new. Exciting line of work to be in. Lots of data. Lots of travel if you like that.

    Cons

    Bullying. Others steal ideas without giving credit. Cut throat. Negative comments made about other team members. Beholden to venture capital. Travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run your own show. Do not be beholden to Bain capital. VC consultants often are given more decision ability that senior management.

    Pros

    Great network of branches for clients to reach multiple markets.

    Cons

    Q3 results reflect the disappointment in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why are the two key regional leaders of CCO Americas still in place while continuing to deliver poor results and yet dozens of key, successful, experienced people continue to be let go? This is so sad to see what was once a great company report poor results yet again and still not remove the key contributors to these poor results.

    Pros

    The work environment is somewhat laid back and positive. Good people and offices relationships. It's a rather personal setting where you'll get to know most everyone.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities and compensation are low. Company is being held back by its lagging parent company. The focus for change is on larger national initiatives vs. local, ground level divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outdoor is both a local and national medium. More focus needs to be put on local markets and people. Offer more growth opportunity to those tasked with growing the company.

    Pros

    OOH is a great industry and it is full of long time (lifers) who are administrative, operations or sales. The people who know the business are some of the finest in all of media. Casual work environment, opportunities to work from home.

    Cons

    The same great people are the ones who are constantly under the threat of being let go because the company is in such a dire financial situation. Constantly changing corporate management, continuing to hire outside the company without success. There are very few, if any, opportunities to move up in the company. The benefit package has gotten worse each year as has the compensation plan. The comp plan is not even close to that of others in the industry. The focus has shifted to mostly national business and the local, bread and butter markets/accounts are suffering because of it. The growing lack of trust is rampant in most markets. It used to feel like a family and everyone worked towards a common goal, but now it is every person for him/herself. Also, car allowance has been taken away, no cell phone reimbursement for sales, and the list goes on. Everything changed when CC was sold to Bain Capital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the survey responses. Actually care about the success of advertisers campaigns and you're bottom line will be okay. Give the control back to the GM's and let them run their branch, instead of them being so fearful about how every decision will be met by corporate. One more thing, it would be wise not to have your two sales managers running a very busy side business while trying to make budget.

    Pros

    You are allowed to grow in your position. Coworkers are a great bunch of people. You can going lots of experience.

    Cons

    While you grow in your position your pay doesn't. Too many layoffs of lower positions and not enough of upper management. No accountability for upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Falls on deaf ears. Look to your upper managers to see what they are doing. Lots of wasted money spent.
