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

    Pros

    Everyone understands the vision of what we are trying to accomplish. There is no jockeying for bonuses because there aren't any. This helps overcome the challenge of short-term thinking in management decisions. Benefits for full time employees are great. Training and career development are strongly encouraged and financially supported. Salaries are competitive. The atmosphere is professional.

    Cons

    Getting hired as a full time employee is difficult. Open positions are generally "contingent staff" who are hired by an agency, work for the Church, can only work for the Church for 2 years and do not enjoy Church employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working to break down silo mentality between departments. Re-think the contingent workforce policy--it causes more inefficiencies and challenges than you can recognize at your 10,000 foot level.

    Pros

    You can get away w/ not working very hard. Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    They never promote people, raises are a laughing joke to my current director, morale is of no concern, and there is no recognition at all. Your annual review is based solely on the opinion of people that hardly ever see you.

    Advice to Management

    Make this a great place to work. The company name on the pay stub should actually mean something here. It is touted as a great place w/ a fantastic atmosphere but it just isn't the case.
