    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation and great benefits. Engaged in a mission to do good. One of the few who feels that at the very least we should come to work dressing the part rather than dressing down.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Toxic and abusive environment grows insidiously when a few self-serving, dishonest managers' only interest is in 'bamboozling the bosses', while victimizing the customers and direct reports. Contributes to disunity, frustration, and disillusionment when staff see these types get away with it because upper management doesn't want to deal. Erodes the belief that Church culture and values really have any meaning.

    Advice to Management

    Contingency model is cruel and wasteful. Does not foster loyalty, keeps contingents ever anxious, and overworks full-timers. Will only go away when upper management is brave enough to continuously evaluate performance, truly listen, truly see, and keep the goods ones while letting go of those who do not deliver, regardless of "cronyism", "buddyism", or person's charming facade.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to international systems and processes. Good cause. First job for many college graduates (bias to BYU). Good benefits. Pockets of great work being done by small teams.

    Cons

    Highly structured organization. Individuals who manage up perform well. Major reorganization that split high performing teams occur too often. Gained and then lost a great deal of talent in last 10 years. Now difficult to recruit top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Return to a leaner process, better compensation.
