I have been working at Jones, Edmunds & Associates full-time (more than a year)Pros
Jones Edmunds is filled with a lot of people that care a lot about their jobs and are willing to go the extra mile to make a difference. I think that most of the people were very nice and easy to work with despite the high-stress environment. If you have the right supervisor, it can be a good place to get a start in your career.
I was offered two weeks of paid vacation and one week of sick time. I also received overtime. It was nice, because longer hours (40+) were status quo.Cons
There are little to no opportunities for personal growth or advancement for non-technical staff. It definitely lead to a lack of morale for me (and I'd assume countless others). When this issue was brought up with HR it basically boiled down to the fact that the technical staff were more important in the overall scheme of things, and I think that reflects in the turnover of non-technical staff.
Leadership was really hit-or-miss. Several people in upper management were very helpful and easy to work with while others were outright disrespectful at times. It was very hard to navigate the waters for trying to have a professional relationship with a lot of people, and it seems like bringing this issue to the attention to HR (exit interviews, etc.) or other supervisors does absolutely nothing. Lower peons were often thrown under the bus when things took a wrong turn.
Company growth is definitely not moving up. There were layoffs a couple of months before I left.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Hold people in upper management accountable for their actions. Employees lower on the totem pole often take the heat for something that was out of our hands, and it makes people feel undervalued in that environment. It's nice that you try to be a champion for employees, but it seems very superficial when non-technical staff really don't have any opportunities for advancement or professional growth.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
