I worked at The Inspiration Ministries full-time (More than 3 years)
Atmosphere that promotes work-life balance. Flexible time-off policy that also adds to family oriented culture. Exercise program that promotes active living in its workers.
No real investment in employee development. You have what you come there with, and that is all. If you are at all connected to IT or Technology, expect to be neglected as far as budgetary needs. You are expected to provide results on par with modern standards but without the same resources. Glass ceiling is apparent as there are few places for promotion in the Technology area. Salaries are average to above average. Politics tend to be discussed very openly at work, and can create an awkward atmosphere if you are in the minority position.

Very relaxed environment no "Clock watchers" pretty much come and go as you please. As long as project deadlines are met you are pretty much free to do as you please including working on side projects or anything else for that matter.
Forced to attend "Chapel" regardless if you would like to or not unless you have amazing reason not to. Getting new equipment or software is like pulling teeth and takes amazingly long periods of time.
Advice to Management
Stop all the ego tripping and hip firing and sit down spend a day and plan one thing at a time.
This work environment is very passionate, not afraid to be on the cutting edge, has great Sr Management, and a beautiful new work facility.
All communication from the top down is very fragmented which results in low employee moral, continuous last minute changes in direction, inefficient work practices, no measurability or feedback, and even an element of fear throughout the corporate culture. there is almost no training or skill development available to the employees.
Advice to Management
Overcommunicate with your staff. View them as your greatest resource - if they win the company will win. also, make it more competitive for people to be employed there in the first place.
