    Good place to work and form career but you will have to weather many management styles.

    Pros

    Good to great pay for publishing industry and region of country. Decent benefits. Generally good atmosphere for creativity and innovation but thwarted by ineffective business plans and marketing strategies. Christian organization a plus.

    Cons

    Top levels of management do not understand core publishing business and make decisions based on the narrow range of their own experience which is mostly in a local church (pastors). Top down management style sometimes pretends to be bottom-up. Too many disconnected departments that don't function well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your employees then take necessary business decisions based on market conditions, and publishing trends not latest fad in church practice. Reduce overhead in order to be able to invest in innovation. Don't assume employees are worthless and out of touch most are experts at what they do and willing to keep learning. Employees should share in big decisions.

    Pros

    A Christian environment that supposedly promotes biblical values in helping churches to grow.

    Cons

    Most divisional leaders lack business acuments and professional experience in business decisions, planning and marketing. Fire flighting on internal issues and no holistic, bold approach to resolve technical incompetency in divisions. Top executives are not bright business leaders and have very narrow mind sets and views. They protect their personal interests more than the interests of the company, customers and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talks! Live out the integrity of their faith.
