    I worked at Campus Crusade for Christ full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are incredible, friendly, generous and helpful. The campus facility in Orlando is state of the art and breathtaking. There are amazing employee amenities such as full stocked coffee/espresso/cappucino bar, gym, basketball and volleyball courts, etc. And the Christmas parties are world class.

    Cons

    The only challenges to working here are getting hired because this is a place anybody would want to work.

    I have been working at Campus Crusade for Christ

    Pros

    Have experienced amazing person and spiritual growth in this role. Incredible relationships and opportunities.

    Cons

    Has a general culture of overworking. Varies location to location, but generally feels one step behind in adapted to culture. Also fund raising for ministry support is burdensome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt to millenial culture, instead of staying in boomer culture.

    Pros

    Great at stressing evangelism and focusing on developing "core" faith concepts. Always opportunity to do something more, different. Great people.

    Cons

    Structure is generally lacking, particularly as it relates to regions which experience a significant amount of turnover. Leadership is not always strong, and can lead to frustration if you aren't persistent enough. Wearing chinos to work Monday to Thursday was a "step up" in the dress code that frequently included shorts. Thankfully, they no longer have all day Halo tournaments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems like a little more accountability needs to be had on the part of regional offices in aligning with national priorities.

    Great mission and ministry that is reaching out to college, family, military and many other segments of society.

    Challenging funding raising at times but God provides

    Keep the focus on the Great Commission and what you are called to do.

    Former Employee - Had Outside Job in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Campus Crusade for Christ part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was not on staff but was a volunteer for over 15 years. It was interdenominational and great people to work alongside.
    good sound theology great in getting you to exercise your faith on the college campus.
    have lots of good material for discleship

    Cons

    if you go on staff you raise your own money, if you have a network of fellow belivers fantastic but you do not get a fixed salary and the economy is hurting everyone.
    they changed the name to CRU just a conviction sometimes leadership expects money out of own pocket for expenses that is draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no real advice i just have personal prefences
    just remember they are here for your spiritual growth not career growth

    Pros

    I love the mission of this organization. They serve Jesus and seek to advance the gospel in new and creative ways.

    Cons

    It really depends on your team. The organization could do well to involve spouses in work too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on track with the mission.

    I worked at Campus Crusade for Christ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can have a real sense of community; treat people as family, not employees. At times, can be a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Do not practice what they preach. Office politics was worse than any corporate atmosphere I've encountered. If you're not a missionary, you're not one of them, never will be, therefore you're treated as an outsider, hired-help, not as a staff member/employee. Regardless of what they say, it is not unified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to either be staffed solely with missionary people or need to determine how to accept and work with people who are paid. In turn, to hold everyone accountable for their actions.
