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

Pros

Co-workers are great to work with and I have learned a great deal since I started here.

Cons

Absolutely no room for advancement especially if you're not in with the boys club. No merit increases; not even a cost of living increase is given to the employees. If you're not upper management, you will be extremely underpaid. Sales staff including assistants are very stressed out by their work loads. The sales initiatives are very chaotic and there are too many to count. There is a real lack of focus from corporate. The bottom line is all they care about, not their employees. And at the end of the year, upper management makes a nice bonus check while the rest of us scrounge for extra cash just to live. It's very de-moralizing.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. They work hard for you so why shouldn't you work hard for them? Your "lower-totem pole" employees need merit increases and cost of living increases. Your compensation strategy and all job descriptions need to be re-visited. You are not retaining good talent with how you're operating right now. This company has so much potential and does nothing to take advantage of that potential.

    I worked at Clear Channel (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work with great station managers and working with amazing co-workers in offices across the country

    Cons

    hard to advance if you don't come out of the New York corporate office. Competency is irrelevant the person from NY will fill management openings

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on your employees. Pay them fairly for all the extra hours the AE's devote to your bottom line. AE's shouldn't have to find another job and file their letter of resignation in order to receive a pay raise. Also not classy for the GSM & President to drop the F'bomb on an employee upon their resignation because they leave for a competitor.

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Co-workers are great.

    They do not do what they say they will.

    Advice to Management

    When you offer a billing list when you accept the position you need to keep your promises.
