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

    Pros

    Solid company with significant 'footprint' (billboards) across the U.S.

    Cons

    Year One very difficult, in terms of writing orders, due to learning curve and 'cold-calling' focus from sales management. No account list offered to new AEs.

    Advice to Management

    Re-engineering the structure of local sales to help first-year AEs succeed

    Pros

    This industry is extremely gratifying and never boring. The constant shift of challenges in the aviation media industry makes for a great place to grow, make contacts and build a career.

    Cons

    There can be long hours and high pressure situations driven by sales. Sometimes there are frustrating client politics since there are so many parties involved with every facet of aviation industry.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better culture of support, upgrade systems properly and fully, and set and enforce rules of engagement and guidelines.

    Pros

    Everyday employees are great to work with, in general.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued and everyone is reviewed as replaceable. Compensation is dismal.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as if they matter. Compensate them, respect them and treat them fairly or good people will continue to leave.

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

    Pros

    Clear career path if you let management know your goals and objectives. Started out as an unpaid intern on the radio side and have been able to work my way up with hard work, determination and the will to do good things for my coworkers and the clients I have worked with.

    Cons

    To much focus on a product by product basis and need to focus on getting a larger share of the media mix. Growth will come from helping clients and agencies see the value in OOH

    Advice to Management

    More training on other medias and how CCO help amplify them.

    Pros

    Plenty of inventory to sell, good management team, well organized. Good insurance and benefits. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Possibly too many employees on sales team,lots of internal competition.

    Advice to Management

    Best advice I can give would be to keep both employees and clients longer. Always value your people.

    Pros

    Clear Channel Outdoor is a great company to work for. I have always felt empowered to make decisions. Everyone in company management has an open door policy and responds no matter where you rank. It's like a large family operated business.

    Cons

    None to report at CCO.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in new locations. There is no better return on investment than the outdoor advertising business.
