    Pros

    Jack Henry works very hard at creating a pleasant work environment for it's employees. The companies founders believed that valuing their employees was a top priority and the company seems to strive very hard to keep this philosophy in place, dispite growing pains. Employee opinions are sought and valued, as shown by the variety of avenues the company provides to voice ideas and complaints directly to upper management. Compensation packages are excellent as well. Overall, JHA is truly is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    While upper management makes a great deal of effort to show employees they are valued, mid- level management seems less inclined to pursue these same ideals. In addition, the good ole boy "I'm promoting you because we hang out together on the weekends" is still very much alive within some departments of the company. Managing people is about motivating your employees to give their best and making sure the company'svalues are adopted throughout ALL the ranks. Crunching numbers and meeting budgets is only part of what it takes to be a good manager. Acknowledging accomplishments, from simple pats on the back to promoting individuals fairly, based solely on knowledge and accomplishments is a great motivator. Being able to truly understand your employees needs and show empathy to them further promotes the "valued employee" company focus. JHA' s mid-level management misses the mark in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more of an active interest in how mid-level management is managing your people. Make sure that your company values are honored and promoted at all levels.

    Pros

    Great ethics. Good management. Fairness and openness. Employees are treated with respect. At least in my experience, there is above average consideration of work/life balance.

    Cons

    At least in Monett, the salary scale is somewhat disappointing but that is understandable given the location. It is at least comparable for the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are currently doing.
