    I have been working at First Baptist Church full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Family and church obligations are highly valued, and the job itself is very flexible and multi-faceted, which makes for a very enjoyable work environment if the 'daily grind' of a same-old, same-old job gets to you.

    Cons

    The administrative assistant becomes the default 'organizer' of various church ministries and activities if the usual volunteer is unavailable and doesn't seek out a replacements, so you may be 'running' up to 5 or 6 ministries of the church along with the regular office work.

    I have been working at First Baptist Church

    Pros

    The Staff are very supportive and the freedom to work as needed is there, and support for ideas is better than expected.

    Cons

    Money is tightly controlled and there is a contingent of people that are very traditional and resistant to change... they can make things very difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the Lord, stand behind your staff
