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 Management

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...

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

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

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A lot of GOOD people with good attitudes. I really did enjoy the people and the position I had there. Very nice office and a good environment. Great restaurant downstairs from the office! :) Very large server room with lots of room for equipment and good cooling.

    Cons

    Radio industry is very frugal with salaries. Corporate people were a pain to get money out of for necessary purchases. The GM is too nice of a guy to be a solid leader. They really need to show support to their employees and show them they are appreciated, ie... $$$. don't be so frugal with off-air and non-sales people's salaries.

    Advice to Management

    GM-PDX... You are a great guy but get a little tougher with your higher ups and follow through with your promises. You can do it, you are a wonderful man!
