I have been working at Clear Channel full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Clear Channel let's you exceed where your skills will allow you to do best. They are also competitive in pay compared to other industry companies. Managers are constantly bringing new materials and market info to you in order for you to maintain a competitive edge

Cons

HSA healthcare is not the greatest healthcare out there. Sometimes you feel like you are being micromanaged (to some that is a plus).

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    Excellent market research, data, and resources

    Cons

    Lack of consistency among management. Horrible compensation. Extremely corporate. Managers are the least experienced I've encountered. Focus is completely on "inputs" rather than output. Short-term strategy and vision. No long-term outlook nor willingness to create strategic business alliances for long-run gain.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your AE's to think more independently. Foster an environment that allows differing approaches, ideas, strategies, and solutions. Look for competitive advantage, increase workplace morale, limit the paperwork and mandatory meetings. Stop compensating AE's like independent reps because the corporate expectations demand increased compensation.

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

    Pros

    Being an intern gives you the opportunity to learn about the industry and work in a fun place for college credit.

    Cons

    The company is literally bleeding itself dry. It keeps cutting back on employees and dispersing the work to whoever is left. If you get hired, you'll start at minimum wage and most likely never get a raise. I'd say the average full time salary pay is around $30k. Don't expect much more than that, unless you are at the top. About 80 percent of radio stations are voice tracked or syndicated. Don't expect to be a radio personality. The rate of job openings is declining and so is the pay. At least 30 people have either left or been let go in the past year, ranging from the lowest level jobs all the way up to the market manager position.

    Advice to Management

    You can function with a smaller staff, but pay your employees a decent salary to do the honest days work they are performing.
