    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!

    Work hard, play hard

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsI have never laughed so hard in my life. I absolutely love coming into work every morning. The people here are incredible--the best I have ever worked with. People have taken a genuine interest in my success and have gone out of their way to make sure that I have the resources I need. I love this company and I love my co-workers!

    ConsI do not have any negatives to say. Clear Channel is in a state of change so for people who do not like to get their hands dirty--this isn't the company for them. But for people who like to work hard, the benefits are amazing. I love my job and I know that I am definitely more than just a number for this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to set your top performers up for success. Top performers need to constantly be challenged--continue to give them projects to work on to stimulate their minds. In regards to poor performers, continue to mentor them and mold them into the best possible employee. Allow them to shadow a top performer so they can "learn from the best."

    Solid media & entertainment company to Grow with lots of Opportunity awaiting

    Account Executive (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsFantastic portfolio, friendly helpful colleagues - amazing, motivating & supportful corporate team. Clear Channel gives you the tools you need for the tooolbox - but it's up to you where, when and how to build the empire.

    ConsI don't see many cons - as with any sales career, there will always be ups and downs, but the right talent will conquer through it and not let it bring you down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see a little more support from management on an organizational level. I would also like to see the AE's that are unhappy and complaining about their jobs - to find another job so they stop bringing others down around them.

    The team I worked with were as knowledgeable as any I have ever encountered.

    Network Engineer (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsThis is a fast-paced company that provides a lot of experience with many different technology platforms. It is a great place to add "tools" to your personal "toolkit".

    ConsInformation technology decisions are made by accountants and upper management that have little or no idea the impact their decisions will have.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to your IT team leads. Many times what sounds financially sound on paper up front brings hidden costs down the road that are cost prohibitive.

    Local Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsManagement is genuine and extremely helpful. They will bend over backwards to help, and continuously ask if there is anything we need or want from them to help us succeed.

    ConsI can't think of any.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt wouldn't be fair if I gave any advice, as I haven't worked here long enough to have an opinion about upper managing, but so far so good.
