    I worked at Premiere Radio Networks (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I took a position based solely on their health benefits, which are now TERRIBLE. There is nothing good here.

    Cons

    Toxic people, constantly changing expectations, undefined rules, loose job descriptions that change with each person in the position, employees are allowed to be rude and overly critical to each other, sexual harassment, verbal harassment and basically being exploited if you have any skills. Working at ArcLight Cinemas was ABOVE AND BEYOND a better experience than working at this place.

    Advice to Management

    Reconcile your expectations and reality, then you can start to do something about reality. The reality is: you are trying to reinvigorate the radio advertising industry, but you have employees that are not capable of innovation and resist learning new skills. This is because you have horrible employee retention. If you did more to help those with skills grow and succeed, your company could make more money. If you have loyal employees who haven't had a raise (not even cost of living) in 8 years, they probably are the type of employee with nowhere else to go, and that's not good for your business. Additionally, you keep people in VP and director positions who behave like children in the workplace, refuse to communicate, are easily irritable and lack the basic problem-solving skills to execute their job and tend to take their frustration out on others and pass the buck. Give some of that iHeart CEO/VP money to your mid-management and senior employees who deserve it and see where that structure takes you.

    I worked at Premiere Radio Networks (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, broad reaching platform with SOME good programming. Consistent work-hours, good work-life balance in lower-level positions.

    Cons

    Toxic top-down corporate culture, hasn't been raises in almost 8 years, very little incentive to exceed job expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the people who operate your company. Investing in the morale of a corporation is more valuable than the bottom line may suggest.

    Pros

    Great employees, who are keeping the company barely treading water.

    Cons

    Premiere Networks has fallen victim to Clear Channel's lousy corporate management. It is the only profitable portion of Clear Channel's crumbling empire of radio. Lack of employee promotions in more the seven years, petty middle managers, and a stagnant business model that is not adapting quickly enough, will see it either sold off or absorbed into the rest of Clear Channel soon. Sadly, many talented people are wasting their time sticking around hoping it will get better and have not seen the writing on the wall.

    Advice to Management

    Give the good people you have left raises and some recognition for their hard work, before all of them are gone. Make corporate stop firing or laying off the wrong people. There are many MANY terrible middle managers that need to go, who are just sitting around collecting pay checks. If Clear Channel corporate is really going to manage Premiere correctly, it is time to start getting to know who is valuable and who really should be let go. Start listening to the opinions of the people actually doing the work! There are many great ideas that are getting ignored that could turn the company morale and profit margin around. I am glad that I got out while I could!

    Pros

    Open communications from the top down. Wanting to go to work everyday changed my life. I was able to express my ideas and was rewarded with positive results.

    Cons

    Accounting department was under the corporate office in San Antonio, Tx. and in some instances did not quite understand the work environment of a southern California and so at times feathers were a bit ruffled.

    Advice to Management

    Always stay open to suggestions and new ideas. It means a great deal to all employees and creates a great place to work.
