    Pros

    Some good reasons for working at JBT include fair pay, benefits, 401k, and perhaps specific to my case, an excellent supervisor. JBT is a large, publicly traded, global company, but the business units are much smaller. It feels more like working for a small to medium-size company since there is little interaction between business units. (Unless you are a corporate HQ employee.) The down-side, it's harder to get promoted or move between divisions.

    Cons

    For years, the company has NOT been investing in R&D and new technology, some key patents have expired. As a result, some product lines have suffered and competitors have been eating away at market share with lower priced equipment that offer nearly the same features and benefits. It's hard to see the company lose it's market dominance, but it still is the best in several area. Service and support is a bright spot. JBT is big and is buying its way into new markets through acquisitions, another bright spot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    JBT needs to either develop new products to stay relevant OR learn to compete on price with low-cost competitors. You'll die a slow death if all you can offer is a commodity machine at a high price. JBT has a stodgy, 'old-man' culture, its not very modern, but maybe that's what you want from a food machinery company.

    At Operations the level of ethics is incredibly high, opportunities for training are available and the company offers good benefits.

    Cons

    Corporate's staff and management are at a are not aligned with the different sites' "realities" creating sometimes conflicting agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should try to understand and bear in mind the different business' need, concerns, challenges.
