    I have been working at Minnesota Public Radio full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    MPR is a magnet for smart, creative people who are interested in building community through radio. It's a mission-driven non-profit organization that offers pay and benefits that are competitive with the private sector.

    Cons

    Because it's a medium-sized company MPR is relatively "flat" -- it isn't always easy to find a clear career path within the company. A lot of people find they need to leave the company, get experience elsewhere in a field, then come back. And because many of the job postings are very specialized, there are relatively few entry-level opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I'd encourage management to create more opportunities for entry-level employees to cross-train and build their resumes within the organization.
