    An Intern's View

    Intern (Former Employee) Burbank, CA (US)

    ProsI enjoyed the work environment and many staff members were very close.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would try to listen to more people and have better organization.

    Learned a lot while selling my soul

    Producer (Former Employee) Richmond, VA (US)

    ProsAs a producer for 3 local news-talk programs for WRVA, I learned my way around a board, how to edit and finalize audio in less than 15 seconds, and I developed an on-air personality through my interactions with the hosts. That helped me to land a gig DJing for the local indie radio station, WRIR which I love.

    ConsClear Channel is an utterly evil corporation owned by the Romney family with it's tendrils sucking the life out of low-paid college students across the country. I slaved away with no hope of a raise, worked insane hours, and had to put up with affronting and insulting political opinions that often targeted me. It was not a happy place for me.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to offer raises to those who deserve it, stand up for your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Atmosphere, Terrible Upper Management

    Account Executive (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsEnvironment is best in the industry, friendly colleagues and managers always willing to help each other. No traditional cutthroat sales tactics here.

    ConsCompany finances are poor. $21billion in debt, more cuts coming. Stay away for now if you are looking for something long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLaid off a ton of people with no notice. Company spend a lot of money in the wrong places, and the employees pay the price.

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

    Clear Channel was a good company to work for

    Radio Personality (Former Employee) Columbus, GA (US)

    ProsFun radio experience, people were great

    ConsPay was not good. When asked for a raise they basically laughed in my face

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your good people a little bit better....Every little bit counts it at least lets them know that you really do care.

    Great Experience!

    Talent Acquisition (Former Employee) North Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsThis is a forward thinking, dynamic, and progressive organization! I met professional and polished associates during my time of consideration. They are sharp and on the cutting edge of this industry.

    ConsAsk lots of questions! You can never learn enough in the interview process. Come prepared. A lot of the executives will be limited on time -make the most of it!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
