I worked at Clear Channel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Every employee was fun, work atmosphere was casual. Perks of occasional celeb meet and greet.

Cons

As with many large companies corporate cares more about bringing in money than the talented employees. I left voluntarily just before all the lay offs but saw many, MANY of my friends let go. The tension/aura in the building now is saddening.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget it's the local talent that helped make you what you are.

    High turnover due to lack of leadership and development

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good job for someone willing to put in long hours and hard work for little pay and recognition. 100% commission is never the way to go.

    Cons

    Unless you've been in the industry for 10+ years don't count on anyone paying you any attention or even acting like they're interested in your success. It's a revolving door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more interest in the training and development if your people and maybe they'll stick around for more than 6 months

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun Environment. Lots of Perks such as Concert Tickets, Meeting Celebs and working with DJs

    Cons

    It is not a typical 8-5 job, sometimes I had worked 24 hours at a time. You are required to be in the office and make appointments and get sales and if needed, entertain clients, attend concerts and then report back to work at 8am. Though it sounds glamorous, it is draining and honestly, I am glad I was a part of such a great company, but I did not have a life at all. No time to date or meet people. Thats why 90% of the employees are not married or divorced. This job takes up all of your time. You are basically all commission as your monthly pay is based on a draw. Clear Channel recently went Private and they reduced the commission by 90% hence I left after 4 years. I LOVED working there, its great if you are young and single and motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is the best! They are so fun! But they are also very deadline driven. You can play all day but you must bring results or you get let go pretty fast. HUGE turn over. This job is for someone who can play hard and work hard. I loved it there! I had to move on and eventually get a life of my own :)
