I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

used to have a culture of taking care of their people and listening to their idea's without reprisal. Actually lived out the Mission to the best of their abiities.

Cons

If you have an idea that is not in line with upper management or disagree with the direction being taken you either step back into line or your days are numbered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and forthright and truly listen to your people. Stop the parades of management (bosses and their bosses and their bosses) walking tours expecting honest feedback. Look at your turnover numbers!!!!

    I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good working hours, good pay.

    Cons

    Quixotic leadership following will of the wisp ideas, no tribal knowledge maintained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Study your company's history. Get a better sense of the group knowledge by removing the fear of reprisal when comments don't follow the required party line. Get outside of your clique of yes men and women. Get out of your office and visit the peasants occassionally without your posse.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    None, other than every other Friday off (corporate policy).

    Cons

    Morale is terrible, layoffs almost every week, top-heavy structure, management does NOT listen to employees. JIB isa sinking ship. Used to be a great place to work when run like "family" business. No more. And if you are the wrong gender (male), you are doomed. Petty and child-like place to work. Not sophisticated al all. RUN away!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to get rid of most mid-level managers and director's by actually ASKING people who work for them for their input. And the direction you are taking this company is being questioned across the board by those lower level employess you will not talk too. Good employess have been and will be leaving in droves.
