    Advice to Senior Managementwho fires a manager for HR reasons, and then hires him back a year later?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    As an intern, it's been a fulfilling experience.

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone within the company is friendly and interested in teaching me something. I would definitely recommend taking this internship if presented with the opportunity.

    ConsOther than the technology at the office I haven't encountered any serious cons. Since I do work online it'd be nice to have a faster computer, but it's not that big of a deal.

    Steady paycheck

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSteady paycheck, good people. They really try to keep us happy but the pay will stay the same unless you're upper management

    ConsNowhere to grow, repetitive job. The pay is as good as the day you got hired, don't count on them giving you a raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSales people seem to be treated better than others.

    I loved working for Clear Channel

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Orlando, FL (US)

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

    ConsThey 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.

    The most fun you'll have at a corporate job

    Sales Assistant (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL (US)

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

    ConsBenefits 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 Senior ManagementLook at your younger employees for growth opportunities.

    Company is changing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsLack 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
