    "Christian company" when it helps, "platform for ministry" when that fits better

    Pros

    Members of staff who are quite professional no matter what.
    Opportunity to listen to great ministries on the air.

    Cons

    Intentionally ethnically homogenous staffing, so comfortable that minority employees have been told racist jokes.
    Women are not treated as equals.
    Morality is second to income, and a number of employees who would not bend their morality have been eliminated or quit.
    People are second to income, and an excellent, profitable employee was let go rather than simply shown the personal appreciation that would have kept this employee in place.
    Complaints to corporate management are bounced back to local without action.
    Complaints to the Salem ethics resource were deemed merely low morale despite material evidence to the contrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee complaints are not always mere noise; people matter, and valued employees will contribute more than those spinning their wheels.

    Miserable and overall depressing.

    I worked at Salem Communications part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company has excellent Christian programs.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management singles out particular employees and makes their lives miserable. The company does not hire the best qualified person for a job opening. There are intangibles that are unwritten policies that Salem Communications follows to hire and promote friends of present employees and then disregard any intelligent desicion making in the hiring process. I would rate this company as the absolute worst employer in America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should treat all employees with respect and dignity. Favoritism given towards employees that are playing office politics every day places this company's Christian message that broadcasts in their programs as being hypocritical when management communicates a mean spirited and overcritical company policy.
