    Great place

    Current Employee - Office Assistant
    Current Employee - Office Assistant

    I have been working at Moody Bible Institute part-time

    Pros

    Its a great place to work and get to know people. You will leave with a lot of friends and connections.

    Cons

    The systems are quite outdated. The departments function quite separately at times.

  2.  

    Work-Study program

    Former Employee - Kitchen Worker in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours. Worked in the kitchen and was afforded the opportunity to really gain experience and knowledge of the kitchen.

    Cons

    Work schedule comprised of clusters of short shifts. While this can be a positive, it was hard to substantially accumulate a good number of hours during the week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask the workers often how are they doing and if there are improvements they see that can be made.

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute part-time (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 (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Moody Bible Institute part-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
