I worked at Salem Communications

Pros

1. Camaraderie and support
2. Unified sense of purpose
3. Small office environment, while focusing on and supporting nationwide staff

Cons

1. Ignorant senior management
2. Lack of information sharing between departments
3. Lack of organizational structure, such that career progress is desirable or possible

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps perform a "deep dive" within the corporate office, instead of just the field locations. That way there will be a shared awareness of what needs to and can be done to accomplish initiatives handed down from the top.

    Pros

    As a media company serving a niche audience, it can be personally rewarding. There are also wonderful individuals at various levels throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Dysfunction throughout the company emanates from corporate offices, and includes intra-company competition/conflict, horrible communication, declining industry, and toxic, frustrating, demotivating mixture of stated vision versus actual (or perceived) decisions and actions

    No more righteous than any other radio group.

    Pros

    Salem Communications provides competitive compensation and benefits. The organization is very supportive during the first year of hire.

    Cons

    The aggressive business attitude is a glaring afront to the Christian programming they present. Under the veil of evangelistic programming is a machine dedicated to the extraction of money from radio listeners and naive advertisers. Expect to work long hours and multiple jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have succumbed to the invasion of Greed...No different than the Money Changers at the Temple.
