Flag Bureau, current renamed the International Management Org or IMO, is responsible for the management of Scientology Churches, or "orgs." In actual fact most of them are continually cross ordered off post by David Miscavige working through is RTC representatives. They are forced to sell books, get money for the IAS, and all kinds of actions that have nothing at all to do with management. Scientology management lines were sabotaged in the 1990s with changes David Miscavige called the "New Era of Management." Flag Bureau was intended by LRH to not just execute the orders of others higher up, but was intended to initiate orders based on evaluation to direct orgs, handle situations and ensure continued growth. All this has been superseded by direct orders from David Miscavige that the Flag Bureau is only to execute RTC programs written by David Miscavige, who is not even trained on LRH management tech — never done a single course and has no certificates.

I worked in the HGB from 1989-1997, mostly as a Staff Courses Supervisor. A few years before that I worked for New World Corps and OSA Int before we moved into the Hollywood Guaranty Building on Hollywood Boulevard. I'll lump it all together into this review, but concentrate on the HGB. I got RPF'd just before GAT came out, so missed out on that horror. I hear things are much worse now than they used to be with regard to the demand for Basics sales and IAS donations, and they weren't too hunkydory before. Being on tech lines, despite the insanities that Sea Org members get pulled into, most of the time I got enough sleep and enough food, and was not abused particularly.

The numbers for the scores are for how I hear things are now, not how they were then. I didn't leave staff requiring auditing repairs to fix up the nightmares and so forth; didn't even need ruds flown actually. I can't say I would recommend anyone join staff there, but while I was there it wasn't totally awful for everybody.

Where I stand on key issues

I am a
ex-Scientologist
The leader of the Church of Scientology, David Miscavige, is a...
Suppressive person (sociopath)

Pros and Cons (optional)

Pros
Interesting experiences. Relatively near the middle of things Scientologically, and not out of the loop out in the boonies somewhere.
Cons
It's the Sea Org, mad, utterly mad realistically.

Bottom line...

Recommend it to a friend?
No
