    I have been working at Salem Communications full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like coming to work everyday because there is very little excess drama. Most of the employees take pride in their work and come together to keep things flowing smoothly. I also appreciate that I can be open with my Christian faith without fear of retribution.

    Cons

    One of the drawbacks of working here is low to average pay. I am a salaried manager and often work more than a standard 40hrs However, when i have asked how i can make more, i am always told to start selling. Well, selling does not work for everyone and i am capable of more responsibility in other areas to justify a higher salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create clear pathways for dedicated employees to continue to advance in salary/responsibility without necessarily becoming a salesman.
