Joyce Meyer Ministries Reviews

Pros – We enjoyed traveling to each city that Joyce was having her conferences and meeting as well as being an extension of Joyce and Dave, by meeting people and speaking words of encouragement to those who came to the products table. We also enjoyed the relationships we made with some of the team members.
Cons – After working with them for 15 years we were let go, and when we asked why first we were told due to budget cuts, when I found out my supervisor hired his son as well two other people we were given yet another excuse, when I asked for a letter for the ministry I was given a letter which said we were not doing our job. I have documentation proving that was not true. We were told that on our final trip we would have a get together with the rest of our team to say our good-byes, that never happened.
Advice to Senior Management – The people Joyce and Dave have given the responsibility to run the ministry they don’t have a clue on how to be a good manager, they have no regard for the people working under them who are afraid to say anything for fear of loosing their jobs, no one is allowed to speak to Joyce or Dave because they are told the must go through the chain of command, as a result Joyce & Dave have no idea how their workers are treated of how what they think. I honestly believe that these unskilled upper management people are going to take this ministry down the wrong path.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – Great compensation
Some of the best people I've met
Great intelligence in their IT department among workers
Rewarding work, but there are some obvious flaws in doctrine
Cons – Unbelievably bi-polar management in virtually all areas of the company
CEO who lists his hobby (Co-founder, Song Writer / Fuzed Worship) first on his Linked In profile (can you say "priorities mix-up?")
Once the curtain is pulled back, the truth behind corporate spending on "outreach" becomes very disappointing.
Petty in-fighting between C-Levels on a daily basis
"Kingdom Building" has become a "double entendre" there
Advice to Senior Management – Leadership at JMM needs to do just that-lead. Replace the CEO, CIO, CMO and their direct reports. Clean house in IT management (your HR department knows it needs to be done, all the way down to the recruiters and assistants). Stop firing people for manager's mistakes. Either choose to practice grace with employees, or don't, but don't make it a game with them, spouting about Matthew 18 and doing the right thing, when management is so clearly exempt from such practices that it smacks of hypocrisy. Ask yourself, "What would Joyce...I mean Jesus...do?"
