    I worked at Trinity Church in the City of Boston full-time

    Pros

    Unbeatable location in the heart of Boston- nestled in the very center of Back Bay and close to T, train station, shopping, retail, parks, etc. The parish of Trinity Church in the in of Boston, a venerable congregation housed in a magnificent 19th century masterwork by architect HH Richardson, and now designated a National Historic Landmark.

    Cons

    Staff positions can be low-paid. Separate compensation and systems for clergy and non-clergy staff. HR in general is weak; poor review and evaluation process. The values the church espouses are not necessarily reflected in the day to day operations.

    Advice to Management

    More big picture planning, hold staff to tighter benchmarks and quality and pay accordingly. Match up values with action.

  3. "Great Company With Great Leadership"

    I have been working at Trinity Church in the City of Boston part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Trinity Church had a great programs in which are funded by the Trinity Boston Foundation. These programs make a great social difference in the inner cities of Boston and promote character development for youth.

    Cons

    One downside to working for the Trinity Church was seeing potential for career growth. While it was not impossible, I did not see myself working there for very long.

    Advice to Management

    Management there is good at staying on top of things. The day to day operations are smooth and do not seem to pose any type of issues.

    Great culture, great people, work-life balance, sense of purpose, amazing facilities, great location, solid benefits. Working here is rewarding and inspiring. It is a welcoming, progressive, forward-thinking church parish with an orientation towards social justice

    Outdated organizational structure and workflows can make things needlessly slow and bureaucratic. Compensation could be higher. Staff and leadership diversity is also limited
