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

Pros

Radio can have a fun atmosphere, Good to try out for knowledge of the industry.

Cons

Skimpy insurance with high cost. NO TRAINING ! Extreme micromanagement. Constantly shifting focus and never ending pay changes. Bain capital owns them and has stripped a once great company to the bone in the name of profits. The employees are not valued and they look for every possible way to cut cost , pay , and labor. Everybody is over worked and underpaid.

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products in the best cities

    Cons

    Corporate - Bain Capital - controls everything and everything is a spreadsheet. They no longer care about customer service. Commission plan is the worst in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Retain and recruit talented employees. Relationships are important across all departments - sales - real estate - operations.

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

    Pros

    Managers will let you work on your own. I did not experience micro managing.

    Cons

    No communication between departments. People do not like to work as a team. It could be a great place to work but everyone is ready to step on anyone's toes to make sure they do not look bad to the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to encourage team work and communication. Need to work with co-workers and help them to learn new roles. Need more career advancement.
