    I worked at BGEA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Loved going to work everyday. Morning Devotions of entire building was a HUGE perk!! Being able to share the Gospel and win souls for Christ was awesome. They were very understanding of time off for Doctors Appointments, etc...

    Cons

    Not just one trainer but many and each one had a different idea of how to do things. They would change how they wanted you to do things many times a day. Many times they would contradict each other. Hard to know how they wanted the job to be done. Upper Management did not keep supervisors informed of changes in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need SOP for each Department and Project before you start training people. Think things through rather than just flying by the seat of your pants and not knowing how to accomplish things. Be fair and don't play favorites. Give everyone an equal chance.

    I worked at BGEA full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of really great people working for BGEA. The organization has had a significant impact across the globe. The organization remains committed to Dr. Graham's mission of sharing the Gospel through every means possible.

    Cons

    Communication across the organization could be improved. There are lots of starts/stops/changes in direction that cause additional stress for staff in trying to meet deadlines.

    I worked at BGEA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In-house dining
    Benefits and compensation are in line with other companies
    Nice people to work with. Not sure if that is because they would be fired if they are not nice or if they are generally just nice people. The people I knew and became friends with were "real".
    The work done is for a greater cause and it is admirable.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen to the little people. Stop making decisions for a department when you have never done the work that dept. actually does. Many are unhappy but will not leave because of economy. Hey, we are all replaceable, right?

    If you are good at what you do especially in the Call Center you will not be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you get a complaint from an employee let that person be heard instead of ignoring their cry for help.

    Senior Management would be wise to invest some time in different departments to see first-hand the daily challenges and operations
