    I worked at Clear Channel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company with great people. Had a lot of opportunities to meet a lot of great people and even the occasional local and national celebrity.

    Cons

    I could have had more opportunity to try other aspects of the business other than just sales.

    Advice to Management

    Just be more involved and have a more drawn out plan for their interns in general not to much to complain about otherwise.

    I have been working at Clear Channel as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to meet celebrities, gain valuable experience, make connections, and learn from those who are already where I would like to be.

    Cons

    A lot of the jobs have been cut into one person doing several different things. Also, more radio programs have become more automated making it less interesting to listen to and shutting out jobs for those who would like to apply as on-air personalities. Those jobs are rarely open. Also, some positions are high turnover positions, and they are always cutting budgets.

    Advice to Management

    If this company doesn't want to lose so much money, maybe they should invest in a Urban contemporary Christian Radio Station. There are so many young adults and teens who enjoy gospel hip-hop and rhythm & Praise gospel music, but this market is ignored almost altogether by this company. While all of the other media mediums have gotten the hint that Christian media is what's hot right now and bringing in the most viewership thus making the most money. They are losing out on too much advertising dollars and will continue to cut budgets. I interned in Chicago, IL.

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work atmosphere and lots of autonomy right from the beginning of the internship. Made some great friends and connections. The job itself was awesome besides the lack of pay, I got to voice commercials that played all throughout Philly.

    Cons

    The whole conglomerate can end up being segregated by station. It felt more like separate radio stations than one unified group.
