    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I suppose the random handouts of leftover perks (that the on-air staff didn't want) could be considered a "Pro" There were some decent people who worked there

    Cons

    The only thing Management cares about it how big their bonus will be (Yes - they get MAJOR annual bonuses even though people are constantly told "No can do, it's not in the budget" Competitive salaries or benefits or even bonuses for the "drones" are simply unheard of Your expected to work endless overtime (be available 24/7 & leave your family at a moment's notice) ..... without being paid overtime If you're a threat to anyone ..... start packing They NEVER thank people (unless you're on the air) HR & Management are all on the same payroll ..... HR won't help or do what's right if it goes against ANY level of Management There aren't many ethical managers there - they will throw anyone under the bus or blatantly steal ideas from someone in front of an entire meeting Retaliation is just another word for "way to get things done" at Clear Channel

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management - You should survey the assistants on what things are like in the markets .... they know EVERYTHING that goes on there - the good, bad & ugly (not to mention how often the Market Managers are actually there and not golfing) ..... but you'll have to sign something saying that you won't use that as retaliation against them Why bother? They don't care

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reputable in the industry, top notch systems, strong resources.

    Cons

    - Extremely poor senior leadership, unclear mission and vision, company does not care about it's people, place incompetent people in leadership positions, spend money on ridiculous spends and do not invest in people although they claim that "People are our competitive advantage".

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and see what really matters. Put the proper people in place to bring knowledge and proper process to the company and not put pawns in place to be "Yes Sir" people. Pay your people, no raises for 5 years while the top 50 are always taken care of is ridiculous. And how about knowing your people, on the Media side of the business people dont even know if the CEO exists or not. Awards and recognition is always well deserved and it never happens. Since you are in cost cutting mode, stop throwing lavish parties in Vegas at the iHear festival and think about giving people raises to fit the hard work and long hours you are demanding. Follow the law, non-exempt employees are required to be paid overtime. Offering a day off in return is not adequate. You may want to try and hire women into senior management and not just act like you are doing such. A male dominated culture and the good ole boys club does not cut it.
