No opinion of CEO

Pros

Casual atmosphere and casual dress
Newsroom co-workers are friendly and supportive
Never have to take my work home with me

Cons

Employee morale is awful
NO raises or cost of living increases
Health insurance costs continue to rise
Inequality among employees, many are treated much better than others
Limited ability to grow or be promoted

Advice to Management

Improving employee morale would in turn improve the overall environment and make employees much more eager to continue producing a quality product. There are glaring inequalities among employees and its difficult for those who are "lower on the totem" pole to see management bend over backwards for those in contracted on-air positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Still a few good co-workers left
    I have benefits here, and at least a job, but who knows how long

    Cons

    Always afraid you will be the next one fired.
    Manager has his pet employees,
    Management is most interested in keeping corporate happy.

    Advice to Management

    Quit lying to the employees about what is going on. This "need to know basis" is pure BS and belittling to employees

    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.
