    Pros

    Free Drinks and Focus Rooms

    Cons

    Upper Leadership in P2P as well as HR are poor representatives - dishonest, evil with enormous egos and self-centered. For a faith based organization, it is really just the opposite at the MSC as they hide behind religion pretending they believe in the values. If you are not a favorite you will go no where (blacklisted) and the favorites are just good at sucking with no knowledge or substance. Favorites are never held accountable and they blame everyone else they don't like for their failures as they steal your ideas to make them their own. Then you are shunned and discredited as they work behind the scenes to get everyone to turn against you just like what happened to Jesus.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all people with respect and listen to all sides without favoritism

    I worked at Ascension Ministry Service Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Conveniences of a modern office...
      - free coffee & soda
      - Ice Machines
      - state-of-the-art Vending options
      - ATM
      - Mail Room

    Cons

    Horribly unqualified & unprofessional Supervisors/Managers are allowed to harass and verbally abuse employees with no repercussions.

    Harassment & a hostile work environment is tolerated; feels very much like a bad Mean Girls spinoff. Other departments just look the other way.

    They may preach about ministering to the poor, but they offer no support for employees subject to such abuse.

    Religious-based hypocrisy at its best.

    Advice to Management

    I wish it mattered... if anything was likely to change, I'd probably still be there.

    Pros

    Free soft drinks and coffee.

    Cons

    Too much office politics. Too hard to move forward. Not enough jobs in the department to grow. You can't be promoted unless you're part of the favorite group. It's like you graduate high school but you're right back in high school.

    Advice to Management

    None. No point in telling them anything. They turn a deaf ear to anything you say.

    Pros

    Treated fairly; plenty of work to do, but hard workers are recognized. Good benefits, flexible working hours, free soda and other beverages. Open office atmosphere. Mobility (work from home) available most areas. Feel valued here.

    Cons

    The usual negative or change adverse people,who you learn to avoid. Upper Management seem unreachable and lots of changes can feel confusing. Lip service only. But a sign of the times,especially in the Health Care field.

    Advice to Management

    More MSC wide recognition. Some areas do a great job; others not so much.

    Pros

    Free drinks, good volunteer opportunities, great on site pastor, some great associates

    Cons

    Management seems to be in a constant state of flux, too much outsourcing and downsizing in the past two years, which results in a stressful environment. Two more smaller departments were let go yesterday. Who will be next?

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to make the Ministry Service Center a place where employees feel stability and aren't constantly worrying when their department or position may be let go.
