I have been working at JLA Home

Pros

This company does provide health insurance for its employees. They hire personnel that are very talented in their field.

Cons

The upper management does not have a clue about what is required to manufacture good products. The view of upper management is everything should be done as "Cheap" as possible regardless of the outcome. They hire professionals, but then they restrict everything these professionals try to accomplish because of cost. They make a lot of promises as far as compensation, but never follow through on these promises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow your professionals to do their job without being hindered by the bean counting management. You may find out that you have better products to sell.

    Pros

    It is a small company so you interact with all the departments.

    Anyone can communicate with anyone else (including the CEO).

    Pretty positive co-workers, friendly atmosphere.

    Get feedback from supervisor(s) easily.

    Good health care plan, but only if you don't have dependents. Free for workers, but costs a lot to include family members.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. It is a cheap company that hates to spend money on anything. Those that have been around since the beginning (company is 10 years old) basically have carte blanche. Some are lazy and really a pain to work with.

    Since it is a relatively small company, hard to move up. There was only one person between me and my boss in company hierarchy. He wasn't going to be leaving anytime soon, and even if he did, someone else would be brought in to take his place (big gap in experience between myself and supervisor).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay. Provide more incentives for employees to work harder.

    Pros

    Small company environment
    Company is growing very fast
    No bureaucratic non sense
    Open door policy makes top management including CEO very approachable

    Cons

    In terms of compensation, you get what you accept at signing.
    Small company setting, company implements different policies frequently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the competency of management
    Most of the top management are great managers to get their jobs done but not great leaders to instigate changes nor to inspire employees
