    Working for the Church is great you have nice people around you and you can feel the spirit at all times.

    Computer Security Analyst (Former Employee) Riverton, UT

    ProsWorking 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.

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementThis 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.

    Experiences within Church employment vary widely from department to department depending on current management.

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsA 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.

    ConsManagers 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 Senior ManagementTalk 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.

    Great place to work with wonderful people and benefits.

    Human Resources (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    Pros1. Working for a purpose that I can really get behind
    2. Great people
    3. Fulfills my spiritual needs as well as other needs

    ConsCulture hasn't quite evolved to where it needs to be, but it is getting there, and it isn't bothersome to me. I had many of the same issues here as at my previous employer and they aren't that bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue moving the culture in the direction you are moving it. It is making a difference.

    A great place to work!

    Senior Graphic Designer (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsWorking alongside good, friendly people with high moral and ethical values. Medical and health benefits are the best in the country. Competitive salaries. Safe working environment. They provide all the best resources and support you need to do your work.

    ConsWay too much management and not enough boots on the ground. They tend to hire too many layers of management, creating too much work for the "workers" to do. Change is sometimes too slow and frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore managers do NOT make for better processes and workflow. Way too many managers!!! Not enough workers!

    Different, but good.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsI like working for a cause greater than shareholder value.
    Praying before meetings is awesome.
    There are some wonderful people who work here.

    ConsAdvancement happens at a glacial pace.
    Culture resists change instead of embracing it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of finding all stars outside Church employment to come in, build the great people who already work for you.
