Don't work here if you attend church here; you won't want to go to church here anymore
Graphic Design and Photography Intern (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – January 11, 2018
Where does one begin....the management is a hot mess, the executive team (pastors, keep in mind) acts like they're high and mighty and often ignores people below them. The design team is constantly creating things last second because multiple departments forget to ask them they need things for that week/that weekend/THAT DAY. It is often stressful. You feel guilty complaining or acknowledging the flawed systems because they don't like to acknowledge that they're bad at management and don't act very Christian towards their employees. They use faith and Jesus as an excuse to pay them poorly and overwork them, especially interns who are unpaid.
I had attended Kensington as my church from 3 years old to sophomore in college (17 years). I was raised in all of the ministries - elementary school (k kids), middle school (breakaway), high school (edge), and college (18/29). I went every week with the exception of maybe three times a year. I was very religious and thought they were amazing at what they did.....and then I worked there. And I saw how awful of an organization it is. I no longer attend church there and stopped going after I ended my internship early on my own terms.
they do have great design for a church
work/life balance, poor management, arrogant/judgmental people, bad work culture
