    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee discounts, competitive pay for the industry. Several retirement savings account options. Feel part of a good cause.

    Cons

    Experience and expertise not appreciated or rewarded. Seems unlikely to move from one position to another; does not tend to hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Offer advancement opportunities to current employees who have earned it. It discourages employees to see outside sources have a better chance at a better position than those qualified and already working within the organization.

    I have been working at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working here is the people. I have made some of my best friendships with my co-workers here. The management is also incredibly respectful, communicates openly and frequently. I always know what's going on. Plus, the pay is pretty competitive for a college job. I also truly enjoy knowing that my work helps to further the kingdom of God.

    Cons

    Some of the drawbacks are that the work itself isn't the most intellectually stimulating (but that lets us talk). Sometimes people don't live up to your expectations (but we're all imperfect, and most of the time they do).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I love this job.

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

    Pros

    Though not an official policy, we are frequently allowed to work from home. The benefits are great with 401K matching, Pension Plan for those grandfathered in and a retirement savings fund for those who are not. Excellent Dental and Medical coverage. You work with people who don't swear, drink, smoke and have the same values. It makes the work environment so pleasant.

    Cons

    You still have the same issues where you work with imperfect people who are not always the brightest. Many of the brightest are recruited by other companies with more immediate benefits and it can sometimes be difficult to weed out the stagnant employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management is a little bit of a joke among coworkers. We are understanding mostly because we are self motivating, so we get by even with a very thin and unorganized management structure. ATI is also joke. It is one of those tasks performed because it has to be done and nobody really gives it much thought. Our day to day work is what is important to us and making sure we meet our customer's needs. That's what we should be rated on.

    I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints full-time

    Pros

    I can think of very few. You can make between 60-100k in a project management position depending on experience.

    Cons

    Difficult to increase your salary after you have started, so negotiate hard going in. Not very many opportunities for career advancement.
