    I have been working at Clear Channel as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to be creative and help a major company redefine itself. Despite its size and complexity, successful employees can make major differences that impact the business and make improvements.

    Working amongst very smart, hardworking and creative team members is energizing. In addition, the entire industry is fun and in the midst of change. Being amongst those who lead change is always rewarding.

    Cons

    You must be willing to work hard, think creatively and work in a very lean environment. But that's only a negative if it doesn't suit you.

    Like most VC funded corporations there is some risk. You must be capable of getting it right the first time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue hiring the best talent.
