    Pros

    Great place to work with a wonderful sense of purpose. Work colleagues are among the finest in any workplace I have been.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, though tremendously rewarding career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level managers are not always responsive to team member concerns. It seems as if they are more interested in building their careers, often at the expense of everyone around them. Because the Church is hierarchal in structure, senior managers tend to side with mid- and lower-level managers when team members voice concerns. This leaves many individuals feeling harassed and without an advocate.

    Pros

    Working for the Church is great you can easily get spoiled with the nice building and great equipment given to you for work. The Riverton building has a big cafeteria and a gym on sit, you have free soda every time and you get the best pay and benefits.

    Cons

    You might think that the is less work because it is a church organization but it is a business like any other so you get busy like any company. You will always have someone to ask questions when you need help and the people there are brilliant and nice the really know what they are doing. Sometimes you might feel dumb or left out but you will be given time to become a master in your field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work on an entry level basses I would not recommend growing and staying there unless you went off years and came back to stay and help build the church.

    Pros

    A sense of mission and shared goals. This is a family-friendly place to work. You will have a sense of being part of a larger worldwide effort.

    Cons

    Managers are people first and Church members second. Most are very good to work with but there are some you may have personality conflicts with. Take off the rose-colored glasses and do your best work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your people, not just to your directors. You may be getting a filtered message. I have had many experiences with this kind of bottom up filtering. You may think that your experience and opinion are obvious but then you will be surprised when decisions are made.
