      The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Response

      Director

      Thanks for the review...and for your 10+ years of service! That seems so rare these days. SO happy you feel like you are making a difference in the world by what you are doing here. As we are a flatter organization with less levels (no chief-level executives of VP's) it often feels like their isn't a lot of upward mobility. We really try to augment that with lateral mobility, providing much more breath in the experience you gain working for the Church. If you haven't yet, bring it up with your manager and see where it takes you. Thanks again!

      Pros

      They truly care about our employees. During the past 2 years of COVID, they have allowed us to work from home to keep us safe. The benefits are great. They are one of the few who still have retirement on top of the 401K match. A professional environment, respectful of others. Very stable company with so many job opportunities.

      Cons

      So much work that sometimes requires a lot of overtime.

      Pros

      They are a great employer to work for in terms of stability.

      Advertised salaries should reflect tithing

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very little pressure in the work environment. Predictable schedule. Great benefits. Regular performance reviews and potential for raises. Plenty of time-off, sick leave, and overtime pay. Routine work.

      Cons

      Not an inclusive or diverse workforce. I witnessed more racism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc. than any other workplace. Only men hold upper-management positions. Little to no growth opportunities (the term they use is lateral movement). Employees must be current temple recommend holders and can face termination if they don't, which includes being a full tithe payer (10% of income). Very little autonomy available.
