Pros

Benefits. Located near a metro station.

Cons

Management does not llike to promote the station to increase listeners.
Programming is dated and boring. Station has a hard time attracting new listeners and advertisers. Therefore, it is difficult to sale radio ads and make commission. It is a constant turnover of sales representatives.
No women in management roles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote the station. Get rid of old tired, racist, extreme right wing programming.

    Company is as archaic as the stories its faith is based upon.

    Pros

    As expected with a company formulated around Christian values, there is a level of ethics and work-place morals that are applied. This would be a great envornment for people who are concerned with professional issues of that nature.

    Cons

    The station itself has an atrocious turn-over rate. The sales-cycle is expected to be around six months, yet they will terminate employees within four. Corporate is slashing benefits, and there is no longer any 401k matching programs. It is hard to keep track of the turnover of upper management, and the way they are always re-structuring sales strategies makes your head spin. Also, if you are not an "evangelical" believer, you should save yourself the inquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell corporate to figure out a stable model and STICK WITH IT. The understanding of the turnover at that place makes it feel like working in a graveyard...

    Pros

    If you care about nothing more than giving to the lord, this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Those interested in stability, promotions and real-world experiences should stay away. Most of the people here only work here because they can't find a job elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try honesty. You preach it, may as well practice it!
