      I really wanted to love it but it wore me down.

      Pros

      — great people — decent pay — good benefits — very flexible with time off, work from home, etc. — understanding of family needs and priorities

      Cons

      — everyone is overworked. LifeWay is notorious for laying off team members and dumping their work onto others without evaluating if those projects should continue and without increased pay for those receiving more work. — constantly changing priorities. I’m all for rapid testing, but that’s not what takes place. LifeWay panics when numbers don’t look good and forces their marketing teams to implement new strategies before they ever have an opportunity to see impact from the previous strategy. Publishing and product teams are forced to rapidly create or recreate new products to meet the bottom line, but they fail 95% of the time because the development was rushed and the marketing teams are too overwhelmed to launch them properly. — many department directors have no business experience. They are previous ministry staff with no understanding of business principles or how to lead a team of professionals. —data and analytics are a joke. The systems are outdated and none of them talk to each other. Finance teams are constantly reporting different revenue numbers than marketing teams. There is always a glitch to fix. Getting customer data is nearly impossible. The team is severely understaffed. — the company has not had a CMO for as long as I’ve been there (though they are currently searching for one). There is only one leader in marketing and really only the curriculum teams report or communicate with him. He’s a good leader but cannot possibly be a consultant for every product line. —there is no CRM tool which is unfathomable for a company this size with so many B2B customers. There is also no sales team which means that marketing teams (4-7 people) are responsible for finding leads, nurturing them, acquiring them, providing product training and retaining acquired customers often times for several product lines. — diversity is considered more than it used to be in staffing, culture and products, but if often reads as forced and disingenuous. — some teams are not supportive of women in leadership.
