    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work in a setting where you can freely have Gospel conversations
    In a setting where you can meet new people and learn a lot from them
    Low stress situation
    Flexible time schedule

    Cons

    It is very challenging to progress and be promoted
    Most of the work is very monotonous
    Some of management can be self-righteous and demeaning to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels there is a major lack of communication between us and management on expectations and overall vision of projects. Be clear in what you want to see be delivered.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits available immediately upon hire. 401k with match to 6%, as well as pension for many positions. Highly subsidized health insurance options

    Cons

    Slightly lower pay scale than in the general market, however the benefits more than make up for this. Not much else.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worth it if you don't have any options to get back into the state of Utah but it was not at advertised.

    Cons

    You are paid with "sacred funds" and for that and the opportunity for helping build the work of the Church. They treat people like an expense and the perk of working for the church is that you are working for the church. It's cheap and degrading.

    Pros

    Excellent mentorship opportunities, nice to work with people who share the same vision.

    Cons

    From an intern perspective, there haven't been many cons. At times work can be slow depending on the schedule of my manager, but that varies based on teams.

    Pros

    High quality professionals, everyone shares the same goals and values. Excellent benefits and competitive pay. Work is meaningful and culture is not highly competitive.

    Cons

    Can be somewhat political and at times slow moving. People in leadership positions tend to stay put so it can be difficult to advance.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I get to work with great volunteers and leaders. It is a spiritual experience being able to help people who are struggling with self reliance.
    The headquarters staff are very knowledgeable and competent and truly try to lead in a kind and loving way while maintaining strict standards and setting difficult to reach goals.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly comparable to industry but somewhat below. It is difficult to determine metrics of success, because success is not based on a profit.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and low stress environment. Products are shifting to a more relevant style and the stale-ness is starting to start to fade. Great benefits. You'll never get yelled at. In fact you might never see anger. Only disappointment at best.

    Cons

    Boring. There isn't much of a career path on the creative side of things. Seems like the super nice atmosphere breeds mediocrity. There are some great people and talented artists, they just don't stay as long as they should to really influence the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a work culture that entices talent to stay.
