I have been working at Thrivent Financial part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The values are what make the decisions here. If it isn't best for the members, then it's not happening. That is discussed frequently, and it's important to believe in the company's mission to be engaged here. Volunteering is regularly encouraged and people really care. You can say "Merry Christmas!" and mean it :)

Cons

It's important to be proactive in seeking new opportunities. There are options to try things out, so be sure to use them or the opportunity may pass you by. Try to meet people in other divisions, as there isn't much communication with other areas that are not in line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep making decisions that are good for your members. Make sure that field and corporate contractors and employees, and the broader communities are aware of all the good Thrivent does. Don't keep us a secret :)
