People are Fantastic, Job Responsibilities Stink

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Troy, MI

I worked at J.D. Power full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- People are great!
- Fun, relaxed atmosphere.
- Flexible work hours depending on your boss.
- Offices are in really nice locations in both Troy and Wesltlake Village.
- Having this name on your resume packs a punch.
- Very good benefits and tuition reimbursement program.
- Great 401K matching program!

Cons- Lots of company-wide job cuts and very often. Always nervous about being on the chopping block.
- Expected to do A LOT of work for not as much pay as you deserve.
- Managers are not good at having your back.
- Favoritism.
- Expected to work ALL THE TIME. I've worked at 1am on Fridays and Saturdays before.
- Very poor work/life balance.
-Little/no room for advancement. They have a saying at J.D. Power that the best way to get a raise at the company is to leave and come back. Not good.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay people fairly for the amount of work they do and develop your associates. This will minimize the insane turnover at the company. Also, be clear about company goals and stop laying people off in hoards. It doesn't make employees confident in your business, which is why they all flee to Edmunds.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
