    I worked at Clear Channel part-time

    Pros

    Very nice facilities and equipment that the company does a good job maintaining. People are generally friendly, at least in that superficial, Office Space kind of way.

    Cons

    They are very cheap. They don't want to make anyone full-time because they don't want to pay anyone benefits if they don't have to. Even if you are full-time you aren't doing too well. Some staffers had gone over 5 years without a raise. Despicable.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, and they'll 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.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed getting to sit in meetings and discuss ideas for promotions, etc.

    Cons

    It was sometimes the "fetch my coffee" type of internship, and I spent a lot of time doing work like cleaning out closets, etc. Internship also unpaid.

    Include interns in brainstorming sessions more!
