    I have been working at Salem Media Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love that the company touches people's lives in such a positive way out in the community, and that spreads over into the office environment. The people are by far the kindest, nicest, and most caring group of people I have ever worked with or for, all the way up to the top management. I feel like I am treated fairly and respected... I can't say enough how much I love this place! My time here has just FLOWN by because it just doesn't feel like a job.

    Cons

    None... nada... zip... zilch! The company is wonderful!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Salem is a great place to work because it's family based, everyone works as a team and understands the importance of building on relationships internally and externally. Salem was very professional from the Interview process to the welcoming and continue to be the best they can be.

    I have nothing negative to Report except that the passion, motivation and enthusiasm the managers and co-workers have IS CONTAGIOUS. :)
