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

    Pros

    Upon researching the company, it sounded like a wonderful place to work. Now that I'm here, it's confirmed! Kind, friendly people who genuinely care about you. I was referred by a current employee, then went through the interview process, which consisted of three meetings, including a mock presentation to the two General Sales Managers. The whole process took about three weeks. Still finding out details of all the benefits: health, dental, vision, 401K, Life Insurance, etc., but what I've heard so far, it all sounds pretty usual for a company this size.

    Cons

    Only been here a few days, but I can't imagine what any negatives would be. Everyone has bent over backwards to take god care of me and make me feel welcome.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so available and accessible, and for giving me the opportunity to join this fantastic organization!

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

    Pros

    Usually within 3 months at a new job, you start seeing the cracks and dark underbelly of a workplace. Not here. I still stand on my belief that Salem is a great company to work for. Since I work at the corporate office, I see the daily efforts made by HR and management to nurture positive employee well-being and motivation through recognition and generosity. It's a pleasure coming into work everyday because everyone on my team treats each other with respect and appreciation.

    Cons

    Still none so far except for too many opportunities to pack on the pounds due to monthly birthday celebrations, potlucks, "bake-offs," holiday luncheons, etc.

    Pros

    I worked for Salem Media previously about 10 years ago. I left for another opportunity, but realize I should've stayed with Salem instead. It is a great company, with strong Christian values and great business acumen. I am very glad to be back on the team!

    Cons

    It is a relatively high pressure sales environment, but is not unlike other broadcast companies in that regard. Other than budgets to meet and pressure to perform, I know of no other negatives.

    Advice to Management

    You have an amazing company with a great deal of talent in your management team. Keep doing what you're doing!
