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

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, friendly team environment

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism, hard to take off for family, endlessly dull tasks repetitively

    Advice to Management

    Hire an individual that you're willing to incorporate into the team, not just sit at the door and answer 5-7 phone calls a day and mail 200 letters a week.

    Pros

    No micro-managing. Freedom to get your work done how you please. Outdoor advertising is a growing media compared to all others.

    Cons

    No where to move up. Corporate policies and procedures are a bit extreme. Pay is not at all competitive to that of other sales jobs. Pay a lot for lowsy insurance. This is a growing industry, but struggling company with unclear vision for future internally.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Let people sell more rather than giving them extra steps in the sales process. Pay more.

    Pros

    Good place to start, but I wouldn't hang around too long.

    Cons

    An extreme under-appreciation for the work of their employees. You are expected to do what you are told, and that is all. Good ideas are sidelined unless someone in sales or management comes up with them. There is no culture here. No room to grow. Not worth the consistent condescending remarks from the sales and management teams. Most people who are held in high regard have no idea what they are doing. I am constantly asking myself "how do you have a job" when dealing with AEs and management. The craziest part is, they know all this, and just don't seem to care.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the company internally before pretending that you matter. The "everyman for themself" approach is not the best way to retain the actual talent you have. Get rid of the people who do not know what they are doing, and listen to the ones you have that do.
