    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    As 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 Management

    Nothing unusual. MPR provided educational assistance, employee participation in meetings. Most companies don't.


  2. Great product, good people, challenged leadership

    Pros

    Great, passionate people to work with. If you like public media and its role in society, this is one of the best and biggest out there.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is challenged to keep the train on the tracks. Need visionary-types we can lead large division and that isn't what is there now.


  3. MPR - great place to work if you don't have to deal with the higher-ups

    Pros

    Lots of creativity; fun employees. HR rocks!

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    The 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.

    Pros

    Creative 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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Prioritize, 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.
