I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Technology is fantastic and progressive.

Cons

The point of diminishing returns has been met in regards to staff reductions. 5 Managers for every Staff member. Who's left to do the work?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value people. In the entertainment industry, people drive the value of the company. If you're going to syndicate all programming into a hub and spoke template nationally...just do it and stop trying to convince people that the local communities matter. The only think local that is happening is local sales.

    Pros

    I was able to use my creativity as well as my sense of humor to benefit my clients.

    Cons

    Two many levels of management and no way to monitize the internet products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax; make it fun again. I think you'll find better performance from your reps if you loosen up a bit!

    Pros

    This 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".

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.
