I worked at LifeWay Christian Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Produces good solid products that fits the niche of their market segment, has a loyal customer base, mostly good people to work with who "want to make a difference,"

Cons

are always downsizing; lean marketing budget money, leadership not very open-minded to new ideas, leadership in certain areas doesn't value market research if it doesn't validate their own thinking; run by a bunch of former pastors who have no business experience.

Advice to Management

hire experienced business people from your competitors for top leadership positions at both the divisional and corporate levels rather than former church staffers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good to great pay for publishing industry and region of country. Decent benefits. Generally good atmosphere for creativity and innovation but thwarted by ineffective business plans and marketing strategies. Christian organization a plus.

    Cons

    Top levels of management do not understand core publishing business and make decisions based on the narrow range of their own experience which is mostly in a local church (pastors). Top down management style sometimes pretends to be bottom-up. Too many disconnected departments that don't function well together.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees then take necessary business decisions based on market conditions, and publishing trends not latest fad in church practice. Reduce overhead in order to be able to invest in innovation. Don't assume employees are worthless and out of touch most are experts at what they do and willing to keep learning. Employees should share in big decisions.
