    Pros

    "Associates are our most important asset" - quote by parent company founder, Jim Moran. DataScan Technologies is the industry leader in North America offering Floorplan / Wholesale Inventory financing software. JM Family (parent organization) has been on the Fortune Top 100 places to work list for 15+ consecutive years. Encouraged work life balance, great people, technology investments made to stay ahead of the competition. Plenty of career growth opportunities at the individual contributor levels.

    Cons

    HQ location is nestled into South Forsyth County suburbs which can make it a logistical challenge to attract talent looking for the "urban experience". Associates stay for years which can make it a "waiting game" to get to the next level in management positions.

    Pros

    Good first job, you are assigned a geographical territory and you are able to work at your own pace without any supervision.

    Cons

    Lowest salary you will ever make in your career. They promise you a future but its just to make you keep pushing. If you take a job with this company start looking for something else after 3 to 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your area managers treatment of thier employees.

    Pros

    Small company, low pressure. Current technology.

    Cons

    Arrogant people in IT from employees have limited experience other than at DataScan. Nepotism is very bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the nepotism. Value people from the outside that may know of better ways of doings things.
