Pros

They have a good mission toward Kingdom related work. It's staffed with good people who honestly want to make a difference.

The company is pretty flexible when it comes to personal and family issues that come up. They're willing to commit money into new technology so the computer equipment is never more then a few years old.

You get a great sense of satisfaction knowing you're able to make a significant difference for some of the smaller clients.

Weekly staff meetings include open prayer time when people have a chance to publicly lift up each other and also ask for help. The Christmas party and summer picnic are not to be missed.

Cons

Recent growth has caused too many internal problems. Instead of people working cooperatively there are political agendas which seem to get in the way of advancing the company forward.

The sales team commits the company to projects before they have a realistic understanding of everything that is involved. This makes it very difficult for the people who are charged with actually doing the work to succeed. In a way the company sets itself up for failure. Large clients can be very challenging under these conditions.

The company may say otherwise, but it really comes down to make a profit at an acceptable margin.

Advice to Management

Ask everyone in the company to provide anonymous input to what they see as barriers with the guarantee of no retaliation for truthful comments.
