Pros

Casual atmosphere and casual dress Newsroom co-workers are friendly and supportive Never have to take my work home with me

Cons

Employee morale is awful NO raises or cost of living increases Health insurance costs continue to rise Inequality among employees, many are treated much better than others Limited ability to grow or be promoted

Advice to Management

Improving employee morale would in turn improve the overall environment and make employees much more eager to continue producing a quality product. There are glaring inequalities among employees and its difficult for those who are "lower on the totem" pole to see management bend over backwards for those in contracted on-air positions.

    Pros

    Fun people, own desk, own phone, good commission, can make good money, must be able to make many cold calls and accept no for an answer

    Cons

    Cold calling, difficult to get things done through corporate, radio is dying, changing the commission structure frequently, always too busy to help people or be helped.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to make sure all employees get the help they need in order to make a sale. Materials and information is not readily available and it should be. Good music on the stations though.

    After several 'Reductions in Force', downsizing is probably over, hopefully the paranoia will end.

    Pros

    Larger company with above average medical, dental, vision benefits (as of 2010). Camaraderie when under the gun, Most software is proprietary to Clear Channel which can be a double-edged sword.

    Cons

    Many upper management changes seem to occur every two years, restructuring from Regional VP on down. Corporate initiatives are driven from San Antonio with little help in executing at the local level. Lots of workers have 9-5 mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Please go beyond the 'managing by walking around' approach, and actually respond to issues in a timely manner. Reign in a few of the senior Account Executives whose attitudes have no place in the workforce anymore.
