    Non-Profit that has great potential if Leadership sticks to core values and doesn't reach for pie in the sky.

    I worked at Unity School of Christianity full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked with good people in my division, with a good sense of unity. The benefits are above average. The overall culture is very inclusive, if at times a bit unusual.

    Cons

    Below average pay, with little or no cost of living increase and zero merit raises. Actual training classes in learning new software, techniques, skill & systems; and not just Lynda.com when one has the "spare time" to cram it in. The system of "goals" is nebulous to worthless. It was almost impossible to reach an exceeds goal. Areas of management and departments/divisions were often seemed to be not on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Walking the talk" and such homilies were often touted. The CEO and the some of the leadership need to learn that for themselves and not just mouth it. It could be a great place to work; but too often management either micro-manages or gives no real or conflicting guidance.

    I have been working at Unity School of Christianity full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Four-day work week. (However, this can also be a drawback when you're working with essentially a part-time staff. Most senior employees have saved up hundreds of hours of PTO and are missing in action for weeks at a time by year's end.)

    Cons

    Just trying to explain what this organization is points to its weakness. A seminary? A 24-hour prayer hotline? A radio station? Publisher? Retreat center? On the advice of a high-priced consultant it changed name from Unity School of Christianity to Unity World Headquarters, but did little to change its flawed organizational structure. Headquarters of what, exactly? Most people assume its the organizational base for Unity churches, but it's not. Of importance to job seekers: Because it is a religious nonprofit, it has opted out of unemployment benefits. If you are laid off from this organization, you cannot collect unemployment from it. Sadly, if you are attracted to the organization because you value Unity beliefs, you may well be disappointed in how they manifest in this environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is something wrong with the framework and it's not going to be solved by denying appearances and reciting affirmations. Administration and Board of Directors are clearly at odds.

    Good working conditions, good management.
