    Pros

    Great experience, good work life balance, great managers and lots of perks. Almost all holidays the day before management made us work half day.

    Cons

    No mobility for advancement or for cross training. As an exployee you had to find ways of educating or improving your skill and knowledge. Management reduced workforce without no advance warning.

  3. "National Advertising Spot Account Manager"

    Pros

    Very rewarding working. Knowledgable co-workers who take pride in their work and doing the best they can in generating the highest shares and advertising sales for the television stations they represent. Everyone willing to help one another.

    Cons

    Fast moving, high pressure position to turn work around quickly. Once you develop a system it flows much better. May not get a great deal of direction in developing a system initially, but ask for help and you will eventually figure out what works best for you.

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

    Pros

    There is absolutely nothing that is a Pro

    Cons

    Everything from their horrible management to pay. The will lure you in to work there with a client list and then once you are there take it away to lure someone else. Management will lie to you about everything

    Advice to Management

    Hire management based on those who encourage and motivate their staff vs pit them against one another

    I worked at Clear Channel part-time

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and supervisors. A very well run broadcast operation with plenty of support from engineering and maintenance departments.

    Cons

    As on-air talent in San Francisco, pay was capped at $20 per hour. This was before they unionized, so I doubt sag-aftra is able to help very much. Most employees hours were kept below 30 hours per week comma making us neligible for health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, and your people will take care of you.

    I worked at Clear Channel part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    State of the art equipment. Employee fitness center in building.

    Cons

    Company absolutely refused to promote me even though colleagues told me I was doing a great job. They seem to view all board operators as identical, not realizing some are better than others.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good work. Give operators a reason not to seek employment elsewhere.
