National Public Radio "NPR" is an American privately and publicly funded non-profit media organization based in Washington, D.C. NPR differs from other non-profit membership media organizations, such as AP, in that it was established by an act of Congress and most of its member stations are owned by government entities often public universities. It serves as a national syndicator to a network of over 1,000 public radio stations in the United States.
Back on 2015 a former employee wrote for Indeed a review about working at NPR he said "Nope, Don't do it!": Not a good place to go if you're looking for job security. Not always a fun place to work. Not much job advancement. Salary's not great. Managers are mostly not competent. The worse part? Everybody assumes it's a "great" place to work, and the people are "public radio nice." In a word? Not.
