    Pros

    Recognizes a need for re-invention and innovation. Investing resources and attention in innovation. Much more healthy and stable than most outsiders realize.

    Cons

    Organization currently in transition, so people who struggle with change and ambiguity may be stressed in this environment at present. External parties and former customers assume it's struggling.

    Pros

    Lifeway has a culture of honesty and openness. The vision and values of the organization are modeled and lived out by management and, as a result, by all employees. Coworkers are encouraging and supportive. Management is caring and available.

    Cons

    Seriously, none that I've encountered.

    Kind people, but not a great experience

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people are kind and you get to help be a part of incredible biblical content. Leadership seems willing to seek out change, whereas past leaders were stuck.

    Cons

    You’re underpaid, you can’t move up into the company, and pigeonholed into customer service. CS is not included in the rest of the company’s perks. PTO is included in your benefits, but you cannot get time off approved unless you’ve been at the company 15 years or more.

    Pros

    Getting to work at a faith based company is awesome! I love my team and have some really fun projects. As a remote employee, traveling is a awesome perk. I get to go down to Nashville about 4 times a year for photoshoots and other in person events.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load is busy and you have to do a bit of overtime.

    Pros

    First and foremost, it's the atmosphere that makes this job the best! Everyone is so kind and friendly. They truly try to work and live based upon the examples of Christ. Working remotely and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The only con is that working remotely we don't get to fellowship in person with these awesome co-workers.
