Pros

Larger company with above average medical, dental, vision benefits (as of 2010). Camaraderie when under the gun, Most software is proprietary to Clear Channel which can be a double-edged sword.

Cons

Many upper management changes seem to occur every two years, restructuring from Regional VP on down. Corporate initiatives are driven from San Antonio with little help in executing at the local level. Lots of workers have 9-5 mentality.

Advice to Management

Please go beyond the 'managing by walking around' approach, and actually respond to issues in a timely manner. Reign in a few of the senior Account Executives whose attitudes have no place in the workforce anymore.

    Extensive centralized resources generally made accessible to local markets. This includes audience and individual industry presentation material, research, creative support.

    Culture of intimidation and fear has arisen against a backdrop of excessive unsustainable debt and resulting operational cutbacks. Compensation structures tied to volatile pricing of commercial inventory has negatively impacted sales force morale.

    Advice to Management

    Sell assets to operators committed to local programming
