    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work with a lot of perks such as concert tickets at area venues. Also, exciting to be in the music industry.

    Cons

    politics, in a word. Like any large corporation, everyone is trying to climb the ladder of success so you sometimes their efforts to do so will be on the backs of others.

    Former Employee - Talent in Sacramento, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Talent in Sacramento, CA (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Always have nice gear, clean facilities, and, at face value, coworkers nicer than Mormons on a Sunday.

    Cons

    Dirt pay. So bad, you're embarrassed to tell anyone what you make, and they never give raises. It's long been understood that Clear Channel is accelerating the demise of traditional, terrestrial broadcasting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people, and they'll coddle you two-fold. Studies show that....

    ...while driving a car, it helps to look more than five inches in front of you.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Medford, MA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Medford, MA (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks - tickets to any kind of event (but only if the person who managed those tickets likes you).
    There are plenty of decent and awesome people there - but not at the decision-making level.

    Cons

    You only matter if you're on-air or in senior management - everyone else is disposable and treated as such.
    Expected to put in more than 24 hours a day without compensation.
    No understanding from the senior management about family emergencies or sick children - Clear Channel comes first.
    No problem taking credit for other people's ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people who work their butts off and train your market leaders to be open to constructive criticism. It wouldn't hurt to get some of the "peons'" opinions every so often.

    Former Intern - Production Intern in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work atmosphere and lots of autonomy right from the beginning of the internship. Made some great friends and connections. The job itself was awesome besides the lack of pay, I got to voice commercials that played all throughout Philly.

    Cons

    The whole conglomerate can end up being segregated by station. It felt more like separate radio stations than one unified group.

    Former Employee - Digital Content Manager in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Digital Content Manager in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at Clear Channel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Los Angeles cluster of Clear Channel Radio stations -- despite the company's reputation -- was a fantastic place to work. I was surrounded by brilliant, creative individuals who were always quick on their feet, embracing new ideas working to make their organization the best possible.

    Cons

    Being very large and having been acquired by an investment firm caused some rough changes. Some positions were cut. But this is what happens when a company works to become more agile and competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive attitude and the keen eye for talent.
