    Pros

    If you're in sales or management it can be ok. Not great but ok. That's where it ends.

    Cons

    Commissions are low. The outdoor industry is notorious for not paying well across the board. Support staff roles are mostly dead end jobs. No growth opportunity at all. Benefits are average to below average at best. Management flat out lied and manipulated. Toxic environment promoted by management. The company was taken over in 2007 by an investment company who has debt problems now and the employees have suffered ever since. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lead people on. Corporate should sell off all the divisions sooner that later. It's inevitable.

    Pros

    We are building a new world of sales team members, constantly looking for the best candidates that are interested in making our team the best!

    Cons

    Advertising as an industry is getting extremely competitive and a con here would be teaching all our clients our footprint.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working as hard as you can!

    Camaraderie with long term employees who had also been employed by previous companies prior to Clear Channel / iHeartMedia aquiring.

    Stop telling employees that there is NO money to increase their salary or hourly rate when you continue to pay yourselves a considerable amount of money!

    Pros

    Benefits are okay such as paid holidays, sick days, vacation, and bereavement.

    Cons

    Pay stinks, raises are very rare, upper management is horrible, moral is very low, chance to advance are very rare unless you're a favorite of upper management. They tend to keep putting more and more on employees but do not compensate. Their cutting corners that don't need to be cut such as safety, drug testing, MVR reviews, etc. They do not value seasoned veterans within the company and industry instead they look for ways to get rid of or weed them out. I could go on and on about the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people for the right positions instead of personal feelings or friendships. Corporate should have one on one with the employees to find out what is REALLY going on at each branch. Give raises more often than every 4 to 5 years. Lower cost of extremely high health insurance.
