    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Family friendly work environment, meaning they understood family emergencies.
    Management was proactive in their approach to corrective action.

    Management used positive incentives to increase productivity. Management went the extra mile in making employee's feel appreciated.

    Ability to move around in the company is versital, one will not be "stuck" in a rut here.

    Cons

    I am not sure I know of any. There are some politics at higher levels of management, but its very minimal compared to any other company I've worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to foster the great work environment!

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent place to work with a great atmosphere. Co-workers that share the same values.

    Cons

    Low payscale. Very little recognition of employee contribution. Dress code is VERY formal - suit/tie/coat to work every day at all times (you can take off your suit coat when you're sitting at your desk, otherwise you have to have it on). Very little advancement opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to HR - build a rewards system that actually means something, where employees are rewarded for the work they actually do instead of just giving broad "merit increases" annually to everyone.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for more than a year

    Pros

    I met some wonderful people during my time in the company.

    Cons

    you are forced to give 10% of your gross income back to the company. on top of being underpaid, it was too much. they are family oriented, but when you need to be with your family, they refuse to let you go home. when I began to disagree with the company, they turned my family against me and made them believe I was a bad person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    honesty never hurt anyone.
