    Pros

    Really, there are none. Their past performance in terms of hiring, retaining and building up their business is non-existent.

    Cons

    The company relies on paid traffic to their sites to puff up their site analytic stats. This allows them to court more ad network partners. These fraudulent practices have resulted in a terrible user experience on their main sites.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop posting fake reviews as these are really transparent. Try to adhere to basic SEO practices when it comes to content posting, page load times and user experience.

    I worked at The Christian Post full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has a unique vision of combining evangelical faith with real journalism. There is flexibility to try out new ideas and experiment with topics and beats. Even if you're a newer reporter, they give you serious assignments and celebrity interviews - a lot of room to develop if you work hard to improve your craft.

    Cons

    No room to slack off. Need to be "on" all the time during work hours, and sometimes after. They expect you to have individual initiative and pump out good quality stories at a fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff to cover more beats.

    Pros

    1 - I cannot think of one. The salary range is low, there were absolutely no benefits when I was working there

    Cons

    1 - This media organization is not an objective newspaper but a propagator of a specific political/religious agenda. They don't hide that fact, indeed they train reporters to be subjective and write pieces form an anti-choice, anti-gay-rights perspective. Their actions stand in direct violation of the code of journalistic ethics. I couldn't stand working there.
    2 - The management is often openly rude to staff and humiliates reporters, yells at them. The general work atmosphere I've experienced there is the worst one I've experienced in my life;

    Advice to Management

    Dear Managment, stop submitting these fake positive reviews. To anyone who has worked there it is obvious that you wrote them. Every single reporter that I've worked with at the CP hated the job and hung on to it only because of a very difficult job situation on the media market.
