Great people

ProsThe benefits are wonderful. Even though you might not make the same kind of salary you would in corporate environment it's almost made up for since all of the premiums on the plans are paid for.

ConsMost of the executive management are elected clergy and might not necessarily have any business or management experience. That is great if you are clergy, but if you are a process oriented person and if you are admin rather than program staff your boss may ask you to do things they don't fully understand the scope of, which can make any kind of planning difficult. I also see many admin or "business oriented" staff and especially contractors exploit this.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand employees as they grow and their value in the real world. Hire contractors that have a proven track record and trust in them, not just the smooth talkers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Job - Poor Pay

Pastor (Current Employee)

ProsFor all the reasons anyone goes into ministry, and then some, the UCC is a great place to join a small congregation in the real tasks of ministering to a community, without restrictions on who's "in" or "out." The denomination's well-earned reputation for inclusivity is reflectied in its many ONA (Open and Affirming) and Just Peace congregations.

ConsBecause is is a "bottom-up" polity - sort of "each office independently owned and operated" - the advantages of the larger denomination are not always evident in the local congregation. Each congregation is free to participate as it likes in national and global emphases - or not at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo thanks.
