    I worked at Operation Blessing International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone here has a heart to see genuine change affected in the world. Co-workers are all great. Flexibility and work/life balance is superb. Benefits are above average. Integrity and moral is good in most departments. Effectiveness and fiscal efficiency in programs are outstanding. Money is used wisely. The desire to see people helped is never lost, which really keeps employees inspired.

    Cons

    Compensation is quite low. Upward mobility is minimal. The division between departments is bordering absurdity. It comes at the expense of efficiency. The relationship with the parent company is similar to that of Congress and the White House.

    Advice to Management

    Politics between VP's is really hurting the ministry. That starts at the top. Probably time for a few establishment VP's to move on. 1 department in particular is especially toxic, given their constant level of staff turnover, I'd investigate that. Unity at the top will increase unity at the bottom. The company is too small to be that fractious. Time for VP's and President to come together and meet in the same room. That would really help with overall company vision. Still a great ministry.

    I worked at Operation Blessing International full-time

    Pros

    The work is noble and helps many people in many parts of the word. There is a healthy attitude among employees most of whom see themselves on an important mission.

    Cons

    The management at the top is out of touch and incompetent. AWOL. Many of us had serious concerns about donor growth and revenue, or lack there of, and therefore the long-term financial health of the organization. That is a mess and should be at least stabilized and growing given the ministry's ties to CBN and its long history and enormous and faithful donor base. The board of OB should clean house and get fresh and competent management in place! The work is too important not to.

    Advice to Management

    Learn modern day best practices and begin executing much, much better or move on. Also, listen to and take a much greater interest in the employees who are in the trenches. For goodness sake learn about the good and bad behind the scenes. Apathy should never be entrenched in ministry!

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The majority of the staff cares deeply about the work and the people they serve with..

    Cons

    The same is not shared by management, definitely not a ministry as it "portrays"; upper mgt and VP's are toxic, extreme waste and misuse of tithed money, and one cannot speak up about it, or you will be removed. The organization is set up to benefit a select few, it may be the grossest misuse of donated funds by a so called Christian organization ever, don't expect management to be "Christian" in their workings and dealings, they are far from it.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to be a charity, be one, don't claim to be what you are not, a ministry and trustworthy. Use God's gifts wisely as He is watching and you will answer for your decisions.

    I worked at Operation Blessing International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work can be very rewarding and the people you work with can be tremendous. There is a definite sense that everyone who works there has a genuine care for the people they are serving and a general love for service. Great Benefits, flexibility.

    Cons

    At the same time, salaries are low and there is a very big problem among the leadership of the organization. Very poor unity and communication, which holds the organization back from what it could be.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage inter-departmental communication other than just at EOM parties (And it would be nice to see the President of the company attend more of those....)

    I worked at Operation Blessing International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The OB is a very good nonprofit organization, its regional office is run by a group of experienced and energetic people with passion to help people at all level.

    Cons

    The workload is not very average, sometimes you have to expect urgent work comes to after hours.
