    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company Name recognition, Clear Channel is Every WHERE in some way or another, all over the world. Company is very involved in Charities, Blood/Food Drives and Walks. That's about it

    Cons

    Around me is a creation of a revolving door at ALL Levels, Markets and Corporate. Contractors coming in by the boatload since their pay comes from the Capital Budget, however, in turn, veteran employees with the company have seen NO PAY INCREASES in over the three years, Bonuses are sketchy/non-existent because OUR pay comes from the Operating Budget which is vastly smaller than Capital. Company is focused on VP & High position compensation. Company funds contributed to Presidential Elections with ties to the Company. Taking money that could go to compensate employees fairly instead of paying for a President to get to the top, THAT YOU DIDN'T VOTE FOR!!!! There is ABSOLUTELY NO Pay structure!!!! Too many Smoking Mirrors.... right before your eyes you see the NEW people replaced with the OLD because the New doesn't know any better and they have that drive and optimism the Old once did. Micro-management differs from position/location/manager and it IS out there.

    Advice to Management

    You can bring in eager, starry eyed contractors/prospective employees but if the end factor comes to where I am and other veterans are, then you’re tossing away your most promising individuals. The ones that have learned the machine, that work proficiently and effectively and have built strong rapport with our clients and sites. The strong core of what a wealthy company succeeds with now and in the future. If employee engagement is really what this company aims for then engage them in what affects them. When appreciated, there are no bounds to the positive retribution received.
