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

Pros

The product itself, radio and TV programming/marketing is fun and challenging. There are some talented people in the organization

Cons

The home office is relentlessly fixated on maximizing profits to the detriment of the product. Corporate made the statement several times: "We are in the business of selling advertising. Not entertainment." and this mindset hurts the company and contributes to its shrinkage in use.

Advice to Management

Hire some radio product experts and give people reasons for listening to on-the-air radio. And get back to 12 minutes an hour of commercials. 22 minutes an hour is way too much. You are driving people to their Ipods.

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, lively and interesting environment, lots of free food, foam soap in the bathrooms, occasionally get to meet semi-famous people and politicians.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, the management are disorganized, no one seems to be happy with their job except a few on-air talent. The sales department is extremely dysfunctional and disorganized. The whole place feels like a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure if you need to do some kind of week long retreat on how to be good managers or if you all need to just be moved to other markets away from each other.
