I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Free drinks, casual dress code, fitness center, Jack in the Box restaurant in the building (not open to public), and pretty good health benefits...

Cons

Where do I begin? This place is going down the toilet fast! Ever since Paul (former COO) left, it's been a nightmare. The executives have no idea what they're doing and were only promoted based on who they are friends with or who they worked with in the past. They don't give a crap about their employees and unless you're in the "inner circle", you'll never have a chance for advancement.
They'll say they can't afford giving bonuses, yet I know for a FACT the CEO gets a 7-figure bonus each year. They have laid off or "encouraged early retirement" for approx. half the corporate workforce in the past year and are outsourcing as many departments as they can for the cheapest prices possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is absolutely no point in trying to give advice to management- they'll never listen and will do whatever they want anyway. In just a few years, they have managed to turn this company from one of the best places to work in San Diego, to one of the worst. So sad.

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

    Pros

    -Great gym on site
    -Cafeteria on site-unfortunately it's a Jack in the Box
    -Alternate work schedule

    Cons

    -Not part of the "in-crowd"
    -Ideas not taken into consideration
    -No communication from manamgement
    -Management trying to run the department without knowledge of subject
    -Employee's are just a number to executives
    -Forcing out employee's with tenure, either by position elimination or early retirement
    -People aren't helping each other anymore. Afraid they may be the next person on the chopping block. If you are part of the 'In-crowd" you don't have to worry about this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you are trying to get away from the power role, then why do you let your managers and directors run amuck stomping their feet until the employee submits to their point of view. Lastly, take a serious look at that in crowd nonesense. It can really hurt a department.
