Cons

Low end salaries
Raises non existant
Sales commissions are always being altered to benefit company, not account executives
moral
work/family balance

Advice to Management

Pretending to care is not fooling anyone with that stupid survey. Nobody believes for a minute it was confidential. The people running this organization have no clue how the regular person lives, so the decisions that are being made are harmful to employees. A few rotten apples are ruining thousands of careers without batting an eye.

    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.

    Pros

    The only pros I can think of us the on-air talent and some co-workers are pretty cool. It's pretty funny though since the ones with the nose up the air are the ones that dont' even have a bachelors degree.

    Cons

    It's a joke. The don't even offer a base salary, it's a draw. And they are shady as hell with the commission structure. They like to say they are giving you a taste of a taste the first year ' so if the average commission would be 10%, they will give you 10% of 10% of it the first year. Management sucks - they are cluless and do not know anything about communications. They are unapproachable, rude, and definitely play favortism. Constant stepping on eachothers feet, not knowing whose account is whose. Ughh, over all this place is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Throw in the towel, hire new management.
