    Pros

    People are intentional about relationships and it feels like a family.

    Cultish Culture with a Dash of Discrimination

    Pros

    The mission of the organization is incredible, and if you're an Evangelical, white, straight Christian, you'll probably thrive.

    Cons

    IJM has a very difficult time keeping diverse talent in their US office and with good reason: they don't do DEI work well. The organization has struggled to address BLM and LGBTQ+ Christians in a way that's healing or humanizing. As a result, these groups of people have left the organization, often with considerable trauma from the experience. The culture is incredibly toxic, and if you don't happen to conform the IJM norms, or prefer different expressions of your faith, you are not welcomed.

    Pros

    The organization is moving fast and growing at a rapid pace. IJM's strategy to partner and scale globally by working with individuals, corporations, and governments is showing great effectiveness

    Cons

    IJM staff has been running at 110% for extended periods of time. Turnover is high and staff is stressed. The organization says this is just normal for non-profits working on really tough challenges

    A mixed bag with an often times toxic environment

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good mission - Good benefits for a nonprofit - Some of the people you work with will be the best you ever work with

    Cons

    - "Kiss up, kick down" culture. - If you're part of the "boys club" or a VP and above that they view as hard to replace, you can treat people as bad as you want and (at most) get a slap on the wrist. - They're trying to improve their diversity and inclusion but considering that the same leaders that tried to call a stop to a DEI working group, ignored HR when they said there was clear racial wage gap between employees in the same position, and get the most complaints of microagressions are still there -- their success remains to be seen.
