Pros

great people to work with...if someone was sick, everyone really rallied to share sick days since there wasn't short term disability. The onsite cafe was convenient. Writing, marketing and selling curriculum that changes lives and grows God's kingdom.

Cons

There were long hours and excessive workload all the time. Unrealistic goals. Sr. management would have an idea and would expect everyone to jump through hoops to make it happen with no regards to budgets, timelines or how it would impact other people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure employees have a managable workload, and be aware of how a change in creative direction impacts budgets and your employees workloads.

    Pros

    causal dress environment is ok.

    Cons

    layoffs happen frequently or jobs are phased out. Workload continues to increase with no increase in pay. Very top heavy with mgmt positions. Some mgrs only have 2 reports. Worst place I have every worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some of your mgrs instead of the staff that does the work for you.
    Mgmt has a one way mind set. they say they have an open door policy but if you make suggestions that go against their plan, you will pay the price. Better to keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job!

    Pros

    The people. Period. I'm so grateful to have worked alongside some of the best of the best, people who became lifelong friends.

    Cons

    Group needs to understand and respect the fact that it's the people who work there who make the company and its products so great. Layoffs, outsourcing initiatives, and reorganization just to get rid of people are frequent. I would hear frequently that people/staff are the company's biggest expense, and all I kept thinking was that people/staff are this company's biggest asset. Also, their purchasing practices need to reflect their Christian values--they should at least be making efforts to break ties with suppliers in India and China with despicable working conditions (Isaiah 58).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to break up the Good Ole Boys' network.
