Pros

As a small company, Salem Web Network employees are welcoming and very helpful to each other. Work camaraderie is great, and lunches are flexible to enjoy the great restaurants in the area.
If job fulfillment is important to you, you'll probably find it here in their commitment to growing a Christian space online.
Work flow is loose, so your time/projects are up to you to manage and there's little red tape.

Cons

SWN is very aware that their work environment is great, and relies on intangible benefits like this to keep employees. Salaries are not competitive, raises must be asked for and take forever to get approved.
If you are used to structure and process, this open work flow might frustrate you.
As a small company, there's not a lot of room for upward mobility unless you're in sales.

    Upgrade your tower, get a new, stronger signal so that the station could be heard across the entire market. Promote the station so people are aware and listen.
