    Great people to work with, dedicated and friendly
    Willing to train and help you advance as a professional
    Family friendly
    Cafeteria and Gym

    Cons

    Job security limited to contract
    lower side of competitive pay

    Advice to Management

    A lot of great talent passes through here and can't stay because they are on contracts and no available positions are open. HR needs to allow more control to departments for hiring.

    Get paid to do what you really love. Leave work feeling rejuvenated. Truly make a difference in the lives of individuals. Great benefits and retirement savings plans.

    The pay is not great, however it is better than the state pays teachers. Difficult to support a

    Better pay.

    Pros

    Working for the Church was a valuable experience. The managers and other team members were very hands-on in my success during my internship. I learned a lot and left feeling well prepared for new challenges.

    Cons

    The opportunity for a permanent position was not what I was lead to believe it was.

  6. Simply wonderful.

    Pros

    I love the tidy and respectful environment of the Church. I love to serve the Lord. I can feel the spirit during the work.

    Cons

    I haven't experiences about that.

    Advice to Management

    To involve people who have a real intent to serve. The Church is not a place to make a career according to the rules of the world.

  7. Loved it, hope to return some day in the future.

    Pros

    I worried the Church would be a bit behind the times in how it operates, but after working at other companies, have been extremely impressed by how they run. There are also great temporal and spiritual benefits.

    Cons

    There can be some difficulty navigating how massive the organization is, and people can sometimes be more nice than effective, but these challenges are pretty quickly surmounted by the unified goal.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes our HR department can be too rigid, often making decisions more expensive, and our work environment less welcoming. Hopefully we do more to adopt some of the office culture of more youthful offices.

  8. Working for the church has been very good with reasonable salary and exceptional benefits.

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great Salary
    Wonderful working environment
    State of the art facilities

    Cons

    Not much diversity in your coworkers
    Work all day in a cubicle
    Most jobs are contingent - only two years

    Advice to Management

    The Church values hard work and intuition. There are opportunities for promotions, though maybe not as many as in a normal company. There is definitely an emphasis on "Christ-like values", since this is a religious entity.
