    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, great people. Amazing flexibility in balancing family and home life with work. The leadership seems to want to mover things in the right direction from the top. Benefits are amazing if you start out as an FTE employee instead of converting from a contingent.

    Cons

    Middle management is clueless and helpless in retaining talent. Pay is too often below industry standard and there is very little recognition opportunities. The positions are very often ran as a business until it comes to anything related to pay and then you are expected to make a sacrifice for the church and do the job for a below average industry salary. When HR tells you that you can make more money by leaving employment and then come back, you know there is a problem with retention and turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As much as this can be a great honor to work for the church, take care of those that are doing so. Restructure pay scales more in line with industry standards. Provide adequate decision making capabilities to middle management regarding employees and benefits. Find ways to show recognition to employees who actually do the work instead of those who are always in meetings discussing the work that needs to be done.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worth it if you don't have any options to get back into the state of Utah but it was not at advertised.

    Cons

    You are paid with "sacred funds" and for that and the opportunity for helping build the work of the Church. They treat people like an expense and the perk of working for the church is that you are working for the church. It's cheap and degrading.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are very accommodating with your school schedule, and they are very good about allowing you time off. It is a rather nice environment and the people are friendly.

    Cons

    They no longer offer full time positions, so if you are looking to work here and eventually get benefits you might want to go somewhere else. They expect a lot out of you and they expect you to be dedicated to your job but they don't show the same dedication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on valuing your employees

    Overall, not a bad student job, but definitely not a good one either.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

    Pros

    My supervisor was very willing to work with my school schedule, which was a major plus since classes and school holidays were sometimes sporadic.

    Cons

    No room for growth and no performance incentives of any kind. This is strictly a job and nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the student employees know that they are appreciated and treat them with respect. There are a lot of incompetent student workers out there, but the majority are hard-working and strive to do a good job.

    great environment; lousy middle management

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

    Pros

    great work environment; clean, well run, with excellent benefits including a pension plan if you continue to work there for a few years.

    Cons

    Terrible middle management; very competitive environment where I would expect to find something much more collaborative. Middle management takes credit for work and ideas of employees, and is threatened by those with ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This needs to be fixed. The work done is important, and I cannot imagine Upper Management being pleased with the way that many are treated in this work environment.
