Pros

Great properties to sell. Clear Channel offers amazing resources and training opportunities

Cons

Very little thought to the individual and LOTS of paperwork. They are more concerned with managing the processs than closing the sale. Too many different agendas/initiatives to follow and they seen to change on an almost weekly basis.

    CCME is just like all corporate media companies, but with a lot more debt, so there's a lot more pressure for revenue.

    Pros

    Compensation opportunity is very high. You're working in the entertainment industry so you are able to meet/work with a lot of well known entertainers/celebrities. Most everyone employed is extremely experienced and are some of the best in their respective fields. They are the biggest company in their field and have a huge network.

    Cons

    The following is typical of a large company like Clear Channel that are driven for the bottom line. If you can't put up with an environment like this, I suggest you look into something else for a living.

    CC is a very large greedy corporation. It is very cutthroat industry. Upper management tends to be out of touch with their employees. They only look at the bottom line and don't consider all the other moving pieces. Everyone is encouraged to work as a team, but in reality everyone is out for each other's throats. Work/Life balance is terrible. People that consistently work hard/smart are not rewarded as much as people that get lucky or that brown nose management. They claim to be better than the competition, but are not much different than the other large companies they compete with. Morals/Ethics of some management are questionable at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't choose favorites. Encourage employees consistently and fairly. Stop getting the company in so much debt you can't dig yourself out of which then puts the pressure on all the employees below having to make up for it. Take the high road when it comes to gossip & controversy. Go to Church every now and then.
