    I worked at Diocese of Dallas (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are aligned with the mission of serving, teaching, and bringing the Word of God to individuals in the region. There is a lived sense of charity and respect among employees, who also live their faith. There is a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Salaries are not as competitive.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Diocese of Dallas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allows time daily to attend a Mass, pray and be reminded of how we should treat others. Wonderful people of all denominations working together for a common purpose.

    Cons

    Not enough training when expectations are set to perform duties that are new to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training on those willing to learn and trust that they will be loyal and use the training wisely.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Diocese of Dallas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is no better job than to teach a subject that you love--and they PAY you to do it!

    Cons

    Trying to duck in and out of the politics and ideologies that permeate the secondary education system in Dallas was tiring and like living inside of a B-grade spy movie.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the administration has its primary dedication to Holy Mother Church and not some personalized ideological version of "the spirit of Vatican II." My family has suffered much at the hands of such misguided zeal.

    Pros

    You get to interact with the church community. There are SOME good people.

    Cons

    I accepted a position within the diocese expecting to work in a positive environment. I was met by the polar opposite of what you'd expect a religious environment to encompass. My direct supervisor was a manipulative, condescending jerk who not only was rude to the parishioners (which was surprising for a person of her stature), but she would openly speak negatively about EVERYONE who worked at the church. It was altogether the worst work environment I had ever experienced. The funny thing is I was warned going in that my would-be supervisor was a handful. "Maybe you can change her," and "Are you sure you want to work with __?" were just some of the MANY warnings I had thrown my way. I should have listened

    Advice to Management

    Rename your institution the "Diocese of Melrose Place", because the drama is rampant and nauseating.
