    Pros

    A faith-based team of people working to fulfill God's purposes through work excellence, relationships, inspiration and compassion.

    Cons

    Small staff requires wearing multiple hats, but it allows personal growth and purpose so it's not really a CON.

    Advice to Management

    Management sets the tone and example for staff, so I'm thrilled to see that lived out every day in our organization

    I have been working at Salem Media Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone here is kind and welcoming. People are willing to work with you and help you accel in your job. We work as a team and root each other on. In my position, there is a lot of independence and many opportunities to mold your writing and editing skills.

    Cons

    It is kind of in a rebuilding phase at the moment and as such people are a little guarded. This has made it a little difficult to build community, but it is something we are actively working on as a team. The communication between higher ups and lower level employees could also use some work as people can tend to communicate solely through email causing miscommunications and misinterpretations.

    I have been working at Salem Media Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros: professional, extremely kind, fun and caring staff, low stress, flexibility, established brands and stations, quality services for clients, very positive and encouraging work environment, talented staff and quality clients, room to train, learn and expand skills and talents, dynamic company, fair work space and assets.

    Cons

    Cons: getting anything approved by corporate takes way too long, i.e., budget approval, pay is not industry standard, technology is a little outdated, there's some unnecessary systems within the company, i.e., the benefits discount system, and never discussed bonuses or pay increases in interview with long term outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Aim for industry standard pay for all positions and make communication with corporate fast and efficient, i.e., fast budget approvals and solution responses.

    Cons

    Other than having to watch training videos till my eyeballs dry out during my first week of onboarding, I have no complaints.

    I have been working at Salem Media Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been with Salem Media for a few days and I will say that I am working with some of the nicest, most kind people that I've ever been around in an office environment. It's too early to tell if I will be successful as a Media Strategist, although I'm confident I will, so if I have the opportunity to work with this team AND make good money doing it, then I have hit the lottery!!!

    Cons

    I do not have a con to speak to about Salem Media other than the traffic to get to and from my home location, which can be trying and is not their fault!!!

    Advice to Management

    No pointers yet, everything is going very smoothly and I feel success coming my way along with a great work environment.

    Pros

    The Pro's to working at Salem Media Group is that you work in an environment that is making a difference in the lives of others through the assets and tools we have. Whether it be through our CTT stations or our NT stations or our music stations - the message, the topic, the song is making a difference and to be a part of the tool that amplifies hope and peace - is a blessing. A company of integrity in its product, leadership and staff - all over the country.

    Cons

    Not having enough time to get taken care of what needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in acquiring the assets to be the best christian and conservative media company in the country.
