Pros

Fast-paced, innovative environment offers lots of opportunity. Culture respects tenure as well as new ideas, often a difficult balance to achieve.

Company values it's employees, and attempts to provide work- life balance...few retention issues.

Cons

Lots of decisions-by-committee, which can be inefficient.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dont be afraid to lead. The Leadship team is smart, capable, and there for a reason!

    The company is run by the "Mean Girls' club.

    Pros

    There really is nothing positive to say. They are lost in their industry and don't really understand their customer and what they want.

    Cons

    Senior management is a collection of friends and people so happy to have a job they never thought they would have, they don't push to make the company better. This company is the living embodiment of the tale of the Emperors new close. Everyone just tells senior management what they want to hear for fear of angering the Mean Girls.

    Pros

    People - peers really work well together. Used to be a very good company to work for. Compensation was good. Recognition programs used to be very good.

    Cons

    Business model has changed and appears that anyone connected to the old culture is not wanted any longer. Face of workers changing to younger than 50. Marketing does not listen to field. People are judged by what they do "at the moment", not the good work they have done or in the downsizing of the company, doing the work of 2-3 others. Management doesn't want you to think anymore, they want you just to obey the orders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jack in the Box has never been the industry leader in thinking, in product, in processes. They have always been the follower. Reduce the complexity of the menu. Listen to what is truly happening with your field staff and restaurant personnel.
