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

    Pros

    Part time work. Short hours.
    Fun people in the Promo Dept.
    Your work load is half in an office and half outside at local businesses. Time to see the sunshine and get fresh air, since there are no windows in the building.
    You can wear anything you want. No dress code whatsoever.

    Cons

    Only part time work with no opportunity to improve.
    Terrible hours. Work 7 days a week for 3 hours each. No consistency in hours or days off.
    Hard to get time off.
    Manager can be unprofessional.
    Only part time so no benefits and no chance of ever seeing full time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they are important and not completely replaceable.

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

    Pros

    not the hardest of daily tasks but that can also be a con in terms of getting mundane, although there were interns to help with the more frivolous tasks. radio work felt "cool" and there was a work hard, play hard team environment.

    Cons

    growth within the company seemed difficult only in terms of time, it seemed as if i would have to wait forever to move up but that may have just been the . also, long work hours because there was a lot to be done, but again, the work itself wasn't difficult so not that much of a con

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to employees in terms of incentives, allow growth to be more possible!!

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

    Pros

    Great perks: Meet famous people and go to great events. Pretty flexible with your schedule, but they know no one can live off the salary and hours they provide. Great for developing people/ networking skills.

    Cons

    Too many people trying to be boss. Workers very competitive and childish toward each other. There is no team mentality. More worried about the bottom line then any standards of quality. Sales is all that matters. The company cuts budget to ridiculous levels and the product suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to completely reboot the corporate culture.
