I'm glad you like working here! The insurance issue is a tough one. I don't know if you were here when the big explanation of our strategy was sent out by email; I'll post it on the wiki. I'd also ... More

    I worked at Logos Bible Software full-time

    Pros

    There are lots of smart people who work here, and all pretty easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Over the last couple years I've grown to disagree with the direction the company is going, investing a lot into projects I don't think anyone outside or inside the company will actually use. They feel like pet projects gone awry. I can understand the desire to expand into new markets, but nobody inside the company is excited about these new things.

    There is also a meritocracy problem among the development team. Of course, having good performance is good, but Logos seems more interested in developers who live to work rather that work to live. This is probably also related to a problem they have giving good feedback to employees on their performance.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what you're good at, and don't burn out developers on projects that nobody is actually interested in working on. Give better feedback on employee performance, don't leave them guessing what the standards are.

    I'm sorry you didn't like the direction -- or that the whole strategy wasn't clear enough. It's true we're working on a lot of projects. We have a big-picture strategy that involves building out a ... More

    I have been working at Logos Bible Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * The work you do helps spread the Gospel.
    * Get to work on exciting technology with incredibly talented people.
    * The work environments and benefits are fantastic.
    * Competitive compensation.
    * Unlimited time off.
    * The coffee is amazing.

    Cons

    It's been discussed at length in the past by people more informed than me, but it'd be nice to have a health care option that was subsidized for families, rather than having to rely on Obamacare for spouse + kids (not a deal breaker, though).

    Advice to Management

    It might be an interesting idea to have senior developers on certain teams create brief tutorial videos on certain internal systems to help get newer employees up to speed and transfer tribal knowledge more quickly and efficiently.
