Pros

Some quality national programs. Nice facilities.

Cons

Station management bends the truth to fit its present needs, but without thinking about the effect on the future. Management allows their personal needs to interfere with the business of the properties. Retains troublesome and troubled employees at the expense of the organization. Creates adversaries and mistrust amongst existing staff as a kind of perverted motivational tool.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Serve one master.

    Pros

    As a small company, Salem Web Network employees are welcoming and very helpful to each other. Work camaraderie is great, and lunches are flexible to enjoy the great restaurants in the area.
    If job fulfillment is important to you, you'll probably find it here in their commitment to growing a Christian space online.
    Work flow is loose, so your time/projects are up to you to manage and there's little red tape.

    Cons

    SWN is very aware that their work environment is great, and relies on intangible benefits like this to keep employees. Salaries are not competitive, raises must be asked for and take forever to get approved.
    If you are used to structure and process, this open work flow might frustrate you.
    As a small company, there's not a lot of room for upward mobility unless you're in sales.
