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

    Pros

    Good to put on resume.

    Cons

    Not enough experience in field interested in.
    Part-timers horror stories made me think again about possibly applying for a position as a Promotions Assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Give a "shadow" day to interns to follow employees who do the jobs that they are interested in.

    Find another way to upload pictures of events to websites because it is scary and not exactly safe when part-timers and interns get back to the office late at night after an event and have to go upstairs and upload photos.

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work with a lot of perks such as concert tickets at area venues. Also, exciting to be in the music industry.

    Cons

    politics, in a word. Like any large corporation, everyone is trying to climb the ladder of success so you sometimes their efforts to do so will be on the backs of others.

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

    Pros

    The perks of radio are always there. Concert tickets, free stuff, food, etc (when you can get them and if you're friends with promotions)

    Cons

    We all know the pay is crap and the risk of unemployment is always looming. Plus its corporate radio so you have limited control over what goes over the air.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they're worth. If you keep piling on work, compensate your employees for it and don't assume the fringe benefits will keep them happy.

    Pros

    Radio life is a fast paced, exciting environment. Endless opportunities to develop new business relationships and generate a healthy income.

    Cons

    Focus on best interest for the station(s) rather than best interest for the clients (advertisers). Micro management was a common practice.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge upper management to create a vision focusing on clients success. Their success with campaigns will breed future success rather then continuous attempt to replace lost business partners.
