    I worked at Campus Crusade for Christ (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good intentions, Cru cares for their staff's spiritual life, excellent support raising training

    Cons

    Lack of good leaders, don't know how to handle women who aren't the typical passive Christian woman

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value people for their strengths and listen to what your employees want.

    I have been working at Campus Crusade for Christ full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to set salary depending on location, high buy in for employees, shared vision, compelling work

    Cons

    Depending on leadership, local level can be great or terrible. Regional level leadership tends to put more kinks in the process than helping individuals at a local level.

    Advice to Management

    Move underperformers out of leadership positions and into places where they cause less hold ups. Don't let the peter principle rule the workplace.

    Pros

    Working for Cru provides instant community. As an intern, I gained many skills besides just ministry. Public speaking, event planning, budgeting, mentoring, fundraising, coaching and managing, etc.

    Cons

    Lots of traveling, but that could be a pro for some people. Raising your own salary is obviously not ideal but you gain some great experience and relationships through doing it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pour into staff and make sure they are cared for. Keep up the good work, and make sure to take input from staff in the field.

    I have been working at Campus Crusade for Christ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy jobs, not much stress, long term job security if you are willing to just go with the flow.

    Cons

    Not much space to move up and become management. Company moves really slow and is not willing to take risks. New ideas are not encouraged. The status quo is everything and if your not ready to become a mindless drone run now.

    Advice to Management

    Build a place that people want to work at, more interesting offices or any willingness to change from the status quo. The culture is not one of achievement or building new things.

    Pros

    Cru was very great about developing employees both personally and professionally. Human resources does not spare expenses to help employees to be successful in their job.

    Cons

    The organization is very flat, meaning they have many departments where centralizing processes can be difficult. It was hard to collaborate among the ministries within Cru.

    Advice to Management

    Define Human Resource policies better, as to not create confusion about said policies. try to centralize these policies organization wide to reduce confusion as well.

    I have been working at Campus Crusade for Christ full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people (caring, kind, devoted), opportunity for adventure, initial training is good, comfort oriented (for those that this matters), clear policies, some good missional practices, good work/life balance (I work a lot harder now that I am off staff and I outworked most of my peers while on staff).

    Cons

    Inflated view of missions contribution, expensive (high support goals), campus crusade for conferences is a justly earned name, dominant culture/middle class driven, needs to foster leaders to innovate and adopt new models, often a lot of structure on the means of how ministry is done

    Advice to Management

    Become more self aware, learn to partner (especially if you aren't leading the venture), deeply inspect your impact on your product and the footprint you are leaving in God's Kingdom work...does He have the same opinion you have of your work? Great Commission movements and Evangelistic movements are not synonyms. Learn how to celebrate your innovators by a) recognizing them, b) listening and discerning when to apply, c) letting them inform part of future direction instead of being told to tow the line with more effort.


  11. Great work, great environment, great mission.
