I worked at Clear Channel as an intern for more than a year

Pros

I cannot tell you how much I've grown from working at this company. I started out as a regular Marketing and Promotions Intern, and then expressed my interest in working in the studios. As interns, we got to go to a lot of concerts, events, and shows for free, which was incredible.

However, the studio work is by far the most experience I have gotten in this internship. Not only did I get to record radio spots, but I got to be on air and I was given freedom and trust when it came to creating content and production/programming tasks. I was respected as an employee even though I was an unpaid intern. There are a few wonderful and kindhearted people in the company that truly believed in me, and if it weren't for them I would not have had the same experience. But whenever a project was presented to me, I took it. I recommend taking those offers and using the internship fully by shadowing employees and taking any possible opportunity, no matter how small.

Cons

I would not have succeeded if I did not push myself and actively seek out opportunities. But the experience that I gained was truly special. I don't know anyone else in my area that has gotten the on air experience that I have!

    Pros

    good work life balance, decent benefits package and compensation

    Cons

    Senior Management lacks direction and changes frequently. The company rewards poor performance, low morale is pandemic as a result. The company has become stagnant due to the many levels of corporate bureaucracy that have been created. Layoffs at the branch level are routine while the corporate ranks increase. There is little possibility of upward mobility particularly if you are a woman.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people at the branch offices. The Mays family had the right formula. The company continues to perform well in spite of management and not because of it. It is important to learn the business before trying to change it.
