    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.

  2. Overwhelmed with managers

    Pros

    Great Mission statement, amazing benefits, good people (mostly) a good environment that can be a fun and interesting place to be

    Cons

    overwhelming bureaucracy makes change nearly impossible and constant reorganizations only exacerbate the problem.

    Pros

    Supportive coworkers, positive culture, people are generally friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    There is a very top-down communication structure. It 's hard to send messages up the chain, especially outside of ICS. Everything goes through the CFO. Sometimes suggestions for improvement get misinterpreted as personal attacks rather than professional suggestions. Communication between portfolios is also poor. This is especially true when it comes to the HR department, which will sometimes change contracts or offers last-minute without notifying the employee, or without inviting concerned parties to contribute.

    The two-year contingent contract has a reputation for being unsavory--not as many FTE positions available as one would hope.

  6. Nice people. Decent pay.

    Pros

    The people I worked around were so nice. It was like a family.
    The pay is ok, but the tips bring it up to a decent amount.

    Cons

    The hours were kind of unavoidable, but working weekends and nights makes having a social life hard.
