I have been working at Salem Communications full-time

Pros

A lot of nice people. This isn't quite the place for cutthroat sharks if you're looking for a caring environment. (Maybe there are some sharks, but most if any don't stay long)

Cons

Time off, compensation aren't big. There is definitely a struggle to balance "Christian" with "Publicly traded". "Publicly traded" wins more often, especially if your back is against the wall trying to make budget month after month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to foster long term company growth opportunities. Throwing out crazy ideas to save the month's budget isn't sustainable.

    In general, the people are mission-minded and have a strong appreciation for each other. There are multiple events for the community and a desire to serve clients in the best way possible.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company working in the faith-based arena can present challenges, but overall Salem balances things about as well as it can be done.
