    I have been working at Moody Bible Institute

    Pros

    Worked with some great people.
    Good Job security

    Cons

    Not the greatest pay.
    Some antiquated interdepartmental communication practices.
    Penny pinching, but times are tight and they are a non-profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of change, it's not all bad.

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute

    Pros

    The position I had fit well with my class schedule and provided invaluable job experience and preparation for the post-college job hunt. The academic and office staff take an interest in the students and are often involved in campus activities. I had a great experience as a student and employee at Moody and would highly recommend it.

    Cons

    Not many training or development opportunities for student workers other than basic skills.

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very healthy environment to work. No politics. When you work there, you do not need to worry about who is for or against you. Everyone seems focused on fulfilling their duty well. I enjoyed working with my coworkers and I respected my supervisor. I learned a lot and the team work was helpful.

    Cons

    Finances are low. But that's understandable. The place does not make bank. Not enough perks, nonetheless. Still, I worked there for four years and I can say that those were not wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it is okay to push your reports to do better.

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great organization overall. Truly mission driven.

    Cons

    Too focused on Chicago and easily forgets other stakeholders outside of the Chicago area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your stakeholders outside of the Chicago area. Trust the people you have put in place. Moody is a great organization and having a lot of impact globally, but many stakeholders can easily get frustrated with the lack of flexibility.

    Pros

    Love the values of Moody and all-in-all they are a great organization to work for and be a part of.

    Cons

    Communication horrendous between apartments. Most people tend to be people pleasers and as a result stuff will often go unsaid or there things will go said behind your back.

    Pros

    great location, friendly co-workers and staff. Its great to work with people who have a worldview based on ministry and the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Cons

    opportunities for advancement are very hard to come by. I've applied to several full time positions and it seems preference is always given to new applicants, not employees who have been working there for several years. Human Resources department is extremely slow in processing applications and correspondence about application process. Very frustrating to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job at grooming and valuing current employees.

    Overall Good Experience

    I have been working at Moody Bible Institute

    Pros

    This is a good place to gain experience in a new field. There is much opportunity to move around to different departments.

    Cons

    Very archaic thinking and practices exists here. The president and executive level management are motivated and innovative. Often times, middle management has been working in their positions too long and are not open to change.

    Pros

    The atmosphere among workers is very much like a family in most departments. Most employees seem to truly enjoy working here and that comes threw in their attitudes and actions at work.

    Cons

    Some of the systems in place are constantly changing. Normally change is good, but it seems that often at Moody, the management changes systems that do not need change swapping out a perfectly good system for a system that does not work well. This can be frustrating as one sees the things that do need to be changed, untouched while the things that work are swapped out for those that have problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it feels as if the student workers are a bit under appreciated or recognized. It is a becoming more and more work each year to be able to work to pay for school, go to classes, and do the other things that are required of students at Moody, thus it would be nice for some departments to keep that in mind.
