      Pros

      I’m blessed to work with an advanced technology team of folks with a loyalty to serve Lifeway, who in turn serves the Church.

      Cons

      Workloads are intense and priorities never cease, which will keep you from being bored and excited to know what’s next, but also working hard at balancing needs.

      Incredible team members; Incompetent President

      Pros

      The LifeWay team is incredible. You will likely work alongside individuals who are among the most gifted in their field and who have chosen to work at LifeWay because they believe in the mission and desire to be a part of bringing God's Word into lives through a variety of disciplines and ministries. There are also a few remaining long-time leaders who are wise, skilled, and great leaders (Bill Craig, for example).

      Cons

      Although I do not have any personal concern about President Mandrell, his lack of experience coupled with his myopic approach to "listening" has decimated the company. It seems that he is downsizing the company to one that is a bit more manageable for him as opposed to leading the work of the team into the future.
