    I have been working at Outreach

    Pros

    Easy going atmosphere. Awesome business model that caters exceptionally well to the Church market for collateral. We get to partner with wonderful people to convey a simple message across a multitude of platforms. Good sense of achievement at the end of each day, and the balance between work-life is equitable. First bonus sharing last year in a long while was appreciated. Results driven and goal oriented.

    Cons

    Favoritism and lack of appreciation for work done well. Rather than promote from within, people are recruited from outside the organization, creating an element of anxiety in employment security. Constant reminder year after year that certain groups are profitable while others are not, creates the urgency to be on the lookout for the inevitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the process used in data comparison for addressing compensation, despite the business model, there is a disparaging gap that you might want to address. The core values are really good, try and stick to them from the top all the way through the organization. Highly recommend that key personal are rewarded fairly.

    The nature of the church-service business model has been it tough to remain aggressive in our compensation of employees. That said, the company continues to remain profitable year after year, having ... More

    I have been working at Outreach full-time

    Pros

    The people that I work with are amazing. There are very few people who aren't fully invested in their job. I've never felt required to 'take my work home with me' so I am easily able to balance my home life and work life.

    Cons

    Due to the design of the building there is a big gap between the office staff and the production staff. It sometimes feels like two separate companies because of this division. There is minimal room for advancement once you reach a certain level. It doesn't take long to hit a ceiling. The work is still fulfilling, but no real incentive to push harder once you hit that level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding staff for Core Value accomplishments. Consider a reward system for managers as well.

    I have been working at Outreach full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been in organizations that suffer from the negative inertia caused by suffering sales and shrinking budgets. It's a painful place to be. Outreach is a dynamic, expanding organization that provides so many opportunities for positive impact in the world and career advancement. It is a privilege to be involved in the energy and purpose of this organization.

    Cons

    Outreach is a performance-based organization with the accompanying expectations of results. It can be stressful while at the same time fulfilling. That very stress, however, helps keeps people engaged and the organization healthy. I'd far prefer that type of stress than the stress of wondering when the next round of lay offs was going to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your eyes on the mission and vision and strive to keep the business serving the ministry.

    I have been working at Outreach full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like that I get to come to work and be focused on activities that support the Great Commission. Most stuff seems fair. When we moved from San Diego, the company did a great job helping us move. (Paid for a visit to the Springs and most of our move costs)

    Cons

    Not enough belly massages. Actually there isn't too much to add here, since we actually were able to get profit sharing last year.

    I have been working at Outreach

    Pros

    It's a pretty easy going place. Nothing too crazy ever happens and the balance between work and home life is great. Not too many people have to take work home and it's usually their choice when they do. The CEO is great.

    Cons

    Not much incentives to do extra work. The salaries aren't that great. There's no room for growth here, and they don't give raises so it can be a bit of a dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create pathways for your employees to grow. People want to be invested in, and if you don't do it here they will go somewhere else eventually. Be positive about bonuses and raises. We want to know that we will get them, not possibly and then we don't.
