    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to get some input from your developers and administrators on technology decisions. They are the people who can see past the vendor's pitch and are more than willing to help you make the right choice.

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

    Pros

    Working for the Church is great you can easily get spoiled with the nice building and great equipment given to you for work. The Riverton building has a big cafeteria and a gym on sit, you have free soda every time and you get the best pay and benefits.

    Cons

    You might think that the is less work because it is a church organization but it is a business like any other so you get busy like any company. You will always have someone to ask questions when you need help and the people there are brilliant and nice the really know what they are doing. Sometimes you might feel dumb or left out but you will be given time to become a master in your field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work on an entry level basses I would not recommend growing and staying there unless you went off years and came back to stay and help build the church.

    Current Employee - Human Resources in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Working for a purpose that I can really get behind
    2. Great people
    3. Fulfills my spiritual needs as well as other needs

    Cons

    Culture hasn't quite evolved to where it needs to be, but it is getting there, and it isn't bothersome to me. I had many of the same issues here as at my previous employer and they aren't that bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue moving the culture in the direction you are moving it. It is making a difference.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time

    Pros

    Everyone has a high standard of morals that you won't find anywhere else. It is not a cut-throat company in the which if you make a mistake, or submit an opinion or idea and other people don't like it, nothing happens to your job. You don't get fired, you don't get demoted, you don't have to "watch your back" like you would in a different company. It feels more like a "family" as well. The pay is great and you won't find another company that takes care of you with their benefits like The Church does.

    Cons

    If you don't work in Utah, there really isn't much in the way of advancement.
    HQ constantly changes the processes instead of sticking to a permanent process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a permanent process for the way things are done and handled. There are a lot of extra managers and processes that are constantly added. Find a way to have a permanent process and organization of management so that you won't have to reorganize again every few years to lean out the process.
