Company Culture

Very old fashioned.

Support from management

Though the mission is great, the leadership is very old fashioned and men centric.

Teamwork

In most departments teamwork is recognized and supported.

Freedom to work independently

Generally yes, though leadership is not aware of all that is going on.

Internal Communication

Information is given on a need to know basis. This does not allow for good synergy.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very man centric in some departments, but not all.

Career Development

Only offered to a certain few.

Office / Work Environment

Great building

Company Image

The image by most is good. But there is a factor of fear of getting laid off due to the many changes.

Job Security

Yes restructuring happens often.

Inclusive / Diverse

No the main listening to ideas or suggestions for change are only listed to by a certain few.

Suggestions for improvement

  • To listen to All employees and value each person as a contributor. More collaboration less hierarchy.

What I like about the company

The organization has a rich history and values the history. It also has many assets and is globally involved in the Church around the world.

What I dislike about the company

Reporting a bad temper of a man is looked at as a problem for the person who is the target, and you are told to ignore it not stand up for yourself.

  • Application

Application questions

  • It was a rather boring interview and I really don't remember the specific questions.
  • They did not ask me much about my work history or my skills as they are relevant to the job.

Comment

Proves true that we are just numbers in the big world of employment , and that if one is over 50, good luck getting a job.
