I worked at JLA Home full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They pay for full insurance.

Cons

Classic cheap chinese company. Low salaries, no room for promotions, as close to being at a communist company not physically in China.

They sell to Costco, Walmart, Macys. Sooner or later, they will go under. Costs keep going up, sales go down, they're competing in a deadend market.

BEWARE.

    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.
