    I have been working at Moody Bible Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Moody has a wonderful mission and vision. The school, radio, and publisher serve their respective audiences well.

    Cons

    Departments lack cohesive goals and strategy. In terms of work load, there is extreme position and department differentials. Some managers run their teams into the ground (working nights and weekends) and others are content to skim by (leaving early and working "remote" often).

    Advice to Management

    Goals need to be established and communicated. Department and team managers should have some experience, or at least should have had a full-time job prior to being in a leadership position. Please stop hiring 22 year old managers.

    Pros

    Moody Aviation maintains high levels of excellence in all that they do, and encourages and enables that in their employees from day one.

    Cons

    The pay rate for an entry level aircraft mechanic works if you're fresh out of college, single, with no school loans, but for someone with a family it is unsustainable.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being great mentors!

    I worked at Moody Bible Institute full-time

    Pros

    The people here are nice and typically easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The strategic vision changes a lot. Leadership will use excuses to make it seem intentional, but it is clear that there is a lot of changing strategy out of fear or uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people to leadership with actual leadership abilities, not those who have been there the longest or who seem the nicest. You can't teach leadership by sending people to conferences.

    Pros

    Great school and great values. Very relaxed schedules because yes school is priority.

    Cons

    Low pay but that's expected. Nothing to say that's a con really. It's just a job as a student.

    Pros

    Company is pretty predictable and has all their rules and policies laid out.
    There is a specific culture to working here, which could be great if that fits with what you're looking for. Most employees have been here for 15+ years, so they seem to be pretty happy.

    Cons

    Primarily fundamentalist evangelical white employees from the city and surrounding suburbs. HR takes forever to process any and all new hires. Due to the organization being a non-profit, the budgets and perks are pretty minimum (no bonuses, ever). The specific culture mentioned above might not be the most welcoming to those with different backgrounds/views. There are a lot of different "silos" with each department, which creates a lot of running back and forth when working on an inter-departmental task.

    Advice to Management

    Start charging tuition. If you desire to operate at the same level as other Christian Colleges, you need to start charging money. I don't see this model lasting long without major cuts to very important departments.
