    Great place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They really value their workers, put a lot of resources into training and professional development. Understanding and gracious. Lots of personal connection. If you like being a part of a culture or to have real relationships with your coworkers, this is a place to be. Good pay for a nonprofit.

    Cons

    This is not the place to be if you avoid mixing your personal life with your work life. People will want to get to know you and it can be tricky to jeep professional relationships separate from friendships within your team. Also, still catching up on maternity leave and parental leave policies. Not much support or structure in place for maternity leave other than short term disability.

    Pros

    Pros: - Generous PTO - Friendly work environment - Not super stressful - Room for growth (depending on department)

    Cons

    Cons: - Those who were former missionaries had an air about them. - Hourly employees sometimes feel like they are being babysat rather than trusted to do their job. - Not a lot of education reimbursement opportunities - Pay. Go into it knowing it’s a ministry and not a chance to make millions.
