    Pros

    403(b) contribution is generous
    Health benefits are considerably less out of pocket
    Good work/life balance in comparison to other organizations
    Generous time off

    Cons

    Fosters unhealthy relationships throughout the organizations in different levels but management forces healthy relationships to direct reports
    Inconsistent accountability from department to department and even team to team within departments
    Salary and increases should be more competitive

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to get ear closer to the ground - possibly use a 3rd party to gather anonymous feedback

    I worked at Wespath Benefits and Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are great.
    Time off is very generous.
    Nice location and infrastructure.
    If your like to take the initiative and learn new skills, this is the place to start a career.
    A lot of recognition programs for employees with good performance.
    Very nice people to work with.
    Everyone's opinion matter, this is reflected in every initiative thorough the entire organization.

    Cons

    Commute if you live in the city could be long , especially during winter.
    Work load varies depending on the department, some teams could have 10-12 hours days of work.
    If your are used to the private agency work environment with a lay back style and a adult celebratory ambiance, probably this organization could be too conservative.

    Advice to Management

    More investment in employees development, create incentive plans to motivate career growth.
    Flexibility (work remotely, dress code) could contribute to create a more enjoyable environment.

    I worked at Wespath Benefits and Investments full-time

    Pros

    Some really talented, nice and hard-working people among co-workers, as well as among the clergy and lay workers that the organization serves. Benefits are pretty good. Good diversity among workers. Good location if you like to drive to work and live in the north/northwest suburbs.

    Cons

    It's a fear-based, fear-driven, political culture that impedes the good, strong efforts of its staff. Not much diversity among managers. Not a good location if you want to take public transportation to work or don't live in the north/northwest suburbs.

    Advice to Management

    Do you really need to be so afraid?
