I have been working at Group Publishing full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
I've worked for 5 other companies in my career, and there is no place like Group. The atmosphere and mission are unbeatable. When you look at the org chart and see how many double-digit employees (10 years+) and how many "boomerangs" there are (people who've left and come back), you start to realize the grass is not greener elsewhere. Many of my best friends are the people that I work with at Group.Cons
Pay is on the low end of the range compared to what you can make other places. Benefits are also on the "low end." I pay a lot out of my paycheck towards health insurance, and there is not much company contribution towards 401k,. Because it's a smaller company, there are not as many opportunities for advancement in leadership as you might find other places. There are only so many "spots."Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep doing what you're doing, and always stick to the core values and goals that are the heart of Group. Keep valuing your people, and raising them up. Be patient as new ideas become reality, it may take longer than you planned. Don't believe that if there is one bad apple that the whole bunch is spoiled, you have hired good people! Trust and empower people to lead, have input, and make decisions.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- How would you be able to help Group grow? Answer Question
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
Group is much more than a publisher of ministry resources for Christian churches. We make an abundance of products for Sunday school, VBS, children's ministry, youth ministry, families and more. Our ministry resources are for women, men, families, small groups, pastors, worship leaders, volunteers and even administrators.
But what we really offer are experiences that grow...
Mission: Group Publishing's Mission is to create experiences that help people to grow in relationship with Jesus and each other.
