Pros

Lots of events with meet and greets, but if you dont like hip hop or country then that "pro" is worthless.

Cons

Incredibly over worked and underpaid. Account Executives will make good money if they bust their butts the first year, but once the year is done they will see CC do whatever they can to take money out of the AE's pockets.

Some AE's have been there for decades and are so incredibly bitter and crusty that it makes day to day working VERY unpleasant.

Very cliquey environment. If you arent in the clique then you are treated as an outsider.

No matter the position, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE A VALUED ASSET TO THE COMPANY AND ARE EASILY REPLACEABLE.

Advice to Management

Not worth posting any advice. They simply dont care.

    Pros

    Clear Channel is a good place to work with a fun atmosphere. A good place to learn and grow with professionals.

    Cons

    You aren't given a lot of opportunity to advance or use the skills you learned. Work is done for you by existing managers.

    Advice to Management

    Give responsibility to the actual employees. Don't put as much pressure on the managers or supervisors. They do a lot of work.

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot about radio and marketing. Look at it like an awesome internship.
    Lots of autonomy so you can learn the skills you want to develop... don't just sit on facebook all the time. Use this time to brush up on your talent! Your next job will appreciate it.
    Perks- Free tickets, trade with local businesses= lots of free food and drinks
    Decent benefits options available to you.
    Great product. Good content that salespeople believe in.

    Cons

    Layoffs. Random, without notice.

    Way behind the curve for technology (on a local level. Corporate seems up to speed.)
    You won't have the resources you need to do your job, so you'll have to buy it yourself (ex: Photoshop/Adobe Suite). You will be the only person in your market with your job title, so you'll have to reach out to some National stranger if you need help. This can be nerve-wracking.

    No opportunities for advancement. Unless you want to be an AE, and then maybe someday you can be a sales manager. You won't get a raise. Your bonus pool seems to shrink every year, and if you're hourly, you won't get overtime. You won't get overtime if you're salaried, either.

    Basically, if you're not an AE, you'll be stuck at this pay level for your entire tenure. Your job description will keep expanding and expanding, until suddenly, you're not really doing what you were hired for. You're doing the jobs of all the people who were let go!!

    Advice to Management

    Pay the "little people" people what they're worth, and perhaps the turnover won't be so high! Yes, your AEs generate revenue... but don't you realize that they need capable support staff?
