Probably my favorite job

Marketing (Former Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I worked at Minnesota Public Radio full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI worked in the Marketing Department. Loved my co-workers, and loved the work we did together. I liked working for an organization that provided something positive for the community.

ConsAs a non-profit, we needed to be thoughtful of our donor's money. It would have been more fun to spend more money on our marketing projects, but that's how it goes.

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing unusual. MPR provided educational assistance, employee participation in meetings. Most companies don't.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Review on MPR

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

I have been working at Minnesota Public Radio

ProsLots of creativity; fun employees. HR rocks!

ConsManagement is old school and very low on communication. Poor management styles. Very poor communication.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe old boys club is a dinosaur. Management needs to be reviewed by employees. The best way for management to know its report card is if employees offer feedback. Score management on interpersonal skills, communication skills and emotional intelligence. Change is good.

Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Minnesota Public Radio

ProsCreative content production, fun work environment, interesting and challenging, some very terrific and talented people, openness to staff breaking out of their role and taking on new things

ConsThe company has grown very quickly, yet the staff, in many areas, have not grown their skill-set to equal the national reach the company has attained. Under-resourced, lower-level online and technology staff can sometimes have more power than they should and make content and system decision that are good for them but not good for the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementPrioritize, commit, and stick with scope. Recognize who the good folks are and work to keep them. Support and resource the good folks. Set expectations for high-level managers higher and make them deliver.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
