    I worked at Clear Channel full-time

    Pros

    They are very forward thinking in their approach to business. I LOVED my senior managers and really enjoyed working with my staff.

    Cons

    They make frequent employee cuts and put that work on to those that are left. I felt like nobody's position was secure regardless of how well they did their job.

    Have better options for hiring on after internship! Part time with no guaranteed hours and at min. wage is crazy.

    Pros

    great perks - concerts tickets, sporting events, etc. , Radio People are always a blast!

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible, No room to "grow" within the company. People will come and go as they seem to hire anyone with a pulse to "sell" radio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your younger employees for growth opportunities.

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The rank and file are very pleasant to work with. Salary is decent for the area and good bonuses when the company is doing well

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Minimal feedback and people come and go without any notification. With the new leadership, the company is losing more experienced staff either because they are leaving or let go.

    I have been working at Clear Channel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A steady paycheck. Decent management and good coworkers at the local level.

    Cons

    Every department is micromanaged from the corporate level. You do not dare to make meaningful decisions at the local level for fear of being reprimanded by corporate. In many cases the people at corporate creating and dictating policy have never so much as set foot in a radio station. The end result is a local staff that sits back and waits to be told what to do, and is content to do nothing in an effort to simply "stay under the radar." There is so much wrong here that one would have to write a book to cover it all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some effort to know the business you are running. You treat everyone as if they work on an assembly line at a factory. Let the creative people be creative. Realize that one size does not fit all.
