    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The community not only on my campus but of the entire region was always so encouraging and beneficial. I was also given the freedom to grow in my abilities both social and spiritual.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was difficult to navigate working within the confines of the university rule and regulations. It was difficult to have successful event on campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More freedom to effectively work on campus.

    Pros

    Love the people i worked with, mostly everyone is lovely. There is a good amount of grace shown. You get to travel a lot which can be fun. This job kept me young!

    Cons

    SO much pressure to be perfect, work all the time have no line between personal life and work. There are a lot of single women and not many single men, which is hard.

    Pros

    Highly evangelistic. The "Transferable Concepts" are golden material for any Christians, especially new/young Christians. Generally oriented toward the nations without neglecting local ministry.

    Cons

    Leadership and organizational advancement based largely on seniority, not aptitude. Some local movements can hinder instead of fueling local church ministry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make leaders, especially campus directors and senior leadership teach biblical texts. I heard so many non-exegetical teachings during my 3.5 years with Cru. I almost never heard anything that was theologically wrong, but nor did I hear many text-driven teachings.
