    I worked at Wycliffe Bible Translators full-time

    Pros

    This is a high quality organization that does great translation and literacy work. They encourage you to use your talents both for your own specific project as well as the organization as a whole.

    Cons

    They have made some changes to determining your salary and budget that have made it more difficult to operate when unexpected work and living expenses arise.

    Advice to Management

    Think of the translator when you make new requirements for your employees. Remember they often don't have good internet and their lives are very complex. They don't need more paperwork or frustration in their lives.

    Pros

    The people at Wycliffe care about one another.

    Cons

    Being an organization that attracts a lot of people with the ISTJ personality profile, many preventable problems are only handled after they occur.

    Never stop growing in the area of member care.

    I worked at Wycliffe Bible Translators full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They really care about you. Really. I never felt so loved.

    Christ-centered workplace with daily devotions and scripture everywhere you look.

    Ample leave and sick time. They also work with families to arrange working remotely or bringing an infant to work with you.

    Great food on site.

    Employee enrichment through weekly worship, as well as retreats and Scripture Celebrations break up the monotony of an office job.

    Cons

    Narrow worldview. While I believe in the mission, I had a more liberal theology than most of my coworkers and worked to avoid biting discussions and hot topics.

    Bureaucracy can limit how well the mission is carried out.
