I have been working at Clear Channel full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

For a sales person, lots of tools and support available. Better resources than any other radio group locally or nationally. You can create your own destiny and can create your own wins. It is not easy to work here, but the culture is not designed to reward people who what “easy.” If you want a challenge and to be paid for true sales performance, this is a great place.

Cons

You must want to work hard and have a lot of will to win. They have more resources, but they also have more responsibilities. If you want to do radio like it has been done in the past, this is NOT the place for you. But if you want to really sell and be paid well for selling big ideas, this IS the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to reward the high-performers. Take care of the ones creating the wins. Don't mourn for those that leave becasue they want it "easy."

    Pros

    Excellent market research, data, and resources

    Cons

    Lack of consistency among management. Horrible compensation. Extremely corporate. Managers are the least experienced I've encountered. Focus is completely on "inputs" rather than output. Short-term strategy and vision. No long-term outlook nor willingness to create strategic business alliances for long-run gain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your AE's to think more independently. Foster an environment that allows differing approaches, ideas, strategies, and solutions. Look for competitive advantage, increase workplace morale, limit the paperwork and mandatory meetings. Stop compensating AE's like independent reps because the corporate expectations demand increased compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretending to care is not fooling anyone with that stupid survey. Nobody believes for a minute it was confidential. The people running this organization have no clue how the regular person lives, so the decisions that are being made are harmful to employees. A few rotten apples are ruining thousands of careers without batting an eye.
