Great company to work for, just not if you're an intern.

I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

You get to travel and attend cool events such as concerts and festivals. My supervisors were friendly and treated their interns well.

Cons

Clear Channel is a reputable company but their internship program is a joke. Interns are only offered college credit and don't learn much. The majority of my internship was spent setting up sound equipment and taking photos. I learned absolutely nothing. This internship was also very time consuming and there's no set schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Internship program needs work. Interns need to be empowered and taught skills for future use.

    Very corporate, under paid for the countless overtime 24/7 work and dedication put in.

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, flexible, challenging, every day is different, tons of solutions for clients.

    Cons

    corporate america. heavy management. lack of recognition, lack of advance in pay. They want you to "run your own business" but you can't do anything without getting 5 managers involved, making it IMPOSSIBLE to feel empowered and make executive calls for whats best for your client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rewarding your account executives more. Consider rewarding account executives that develop DIRECT business that is LOCKED IN ANNUALLY. Stop giving senior reps or your favorite reps all of the transactional agency business that helps pay their mortgage. The reps that develop new direct relationships are the ones working their butts off. It starts with a cold call, develops into a relationship and makes CCME the money.

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    meeting celebrities- once in a blue moon. When you're not stuck working an event at a gas station, or Kroger store.

    free tickets- Usually nose bleed or last minute unclaimed tickets after the directors take their pick.

    The experience- You learn a lot considering you have to balance your job as well as your directors responsibilities because they are lazy and can't work a full 9-5 day.

    Cons

    The directors are some of the laziest people I've ever met.

    You're over worked and under paid.

    No room for advancement because clear channel does cuts every 6 months and instead of keeping positions open they get rid of the position altogether and give those responsibilities to employees that already cant handle what they have on their plate.

    So much gossip. It's like being back in high school because the directors sit there and bash all of the other employees.

    Racist directors. very racist.

    I've spotted the stations promotions staff multiple times driving and talking on the cell phone at the same time. Same guy who comes into work high every day. Open your eyes clear channel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new directors, give your employees all a raise that they deserve. Find better promotions staff to represent your station properly.
