    Pros

    There are lots of smart people who work here, and all pretty easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Over the last couple years I've grown to disagree with the direction the company is going, investing a lot into projects I don't think anyone outside or inside the company will actually use. They feel like pet projects gone awry. I can understand the desire to expand into new markets, but nobody inside the company is excited about these new things.

    There is also a meritocracy problem among the development team. Of course, having good performance is good, but Logos seems more interested in developers who live to work rather that work to live. This is probably also related to a problem they have giving good feedback to employees on their performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what you're good at, and don't burn out developers on projects that nobody is actually interested in working on. Give better feedback on employee performance, don't leave them guessing what the standards are.

    Pros

    * The work you do helps spread the Gospel.
    * Get to work on exciting technology with incredibly talented people.
    * The work environments and benefits are fantastic.
    * Competitive compensation.
    * Unlimited time off.
    * The coffee is amazing.

    Cons

    It's been discussed at length in the past by people more informed than me, but it'd be nice to have a health care option that was subsidized for families, rather than having to rely on Obamacare for spouse + kids (not a deal breaker, though).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be an interesting idea to have senior developers on certain teams create brief tutorial videos on certain internal systems to help get newer employees up to speed and transfer tribal knowledge more quickly and efficiently.

    Pros

    Surrounded by people whose superior skills are matched only by their character (helpfulness, encouragement, positivity, integrity). I believe we produce the most significant and advanced religious media in the world, and that provides a sense of enormous significance to what we all are doing.

    Cons

    Unrelenting expectations (mitigated by helpful and patient supervisors and colleagues)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up your visionary leadership

    Pros

    Logos is a market leader in developing amazing Bible software tools to enrich users' study of the Word. Very fulfilling place to work. Coworkers are top notch at what they do and there's a culture of continual learning which ensures employees and the company never become stale.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are 'growing pains' as the company continues to grow and management and departments learn how to adapt.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. Nice buildings, highly challenging. Lots of room for growth.

    Cons

    The work environment at Logos is strange. In some of the departments, particularly marketing, it feels like extended college, most of the employees are under the age of 30. This is probably because the marketing department underpays most of its employees and the ones who are willing to work hard for low pay are typically college grads in their first job. For a company that boasts about being the "best Christian place to work," it seemed like overall, stress was really high, pay was too low and there was low morale for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying your employees better. It will motivate them to stay longer. Stop firing people who are doing a good job, it creates fear in the workplace.

    Pros

    Great, innovative company. There is a lot of room for growth within the company, and the company culture is generally good. I enjoy being able to be a part of creating and selling useful products that really benefit our users.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is weak. Often it seems as if some departments are working for themselves rather than for the company at large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the issues with Logos appear to stem from the President and VP not always being on the same page and having separate interests and different focus.
