    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

  8. "Intern"

    Cons

    traditional "intern" duties, not a lot of hands-on work

    Advice to Management

    allow for more hands-on experience

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    Fun. Friday Happy Hour with beer cart at 4pm. Lots of short days or extra days off around holidays or when the revenue is up.

    Cons

    Dont honor job offers. Constantly taking accounts away and shuffling accounts. Layoffs. Reducing commission plans. No training offered. Little support from managers.

    Advice to Management

    Step it up. Work as hard as you expect your team to work. Honor your offer letters. Stop cutting commission plans.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Before the company went public there were many pros. Among that was there were staffs in each department instead of the department head being the entire department (except sales).

    Cons

    As the business progressed the headcount was reduced in many departments and pay raises were frozen and bonuses not awarded. There were department heads covering more than one city with no support staff.

    Advice to Management

    A healthy tree needs a root system and reducing headcount in the technical staffing for a technical company is tantamount to cutting out the roots of a tree.
