    I worked at United Methodist Church full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for ministry. Good medical benefits and guaranteed salary. Building relationships with other pastors and laity.

    Cons

    The UMC on the verge of a major split. The leadership across the U.S. is all over the map concerning, theology, moral issues and how to stop the bleeding of church members. The UMC can hardly be called a "Christian" denomination any longer.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can give, return to Biblical principals and the original Weslyian beliefs.

    I have been working at United Methodist Church part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Coworkers are generally nice.
    2. Workplace is clean.
    3. Free food.
    4. Short shifts (3 hrs) are also available if you need them.
    5. Helping the residents and making their day is quite rewarding.

    Cons

    1. Job is somewhat physically demanding..(Really depends on who you're working with and how much work they do as well)
    2. Supervisors may favor certain employees and let them slack while you do their dirty work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more strict with the supervisor/cook requirements because they can be very immature at times.

    I worked at United Methodist Church full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Technical skills are secondary to administrative proficiency and "people" skills.

    Cons

    Politics are politics regardless of the venue or institution. Power plays and difficult personal interactions are not uncommon. Don't expect everything to be "for the common good" just because of the church title. If you keep your expectations in line with what you would find in the secular world, you might not be disappointed.
