I worked at Jama Software full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* Great people. Jama does a wonderful job of taking their time to hire smart, hard working people that will fit in well within the company culture. * Great product. They are disrupting an existing industry and established market... and crushing it. * Not too much micro-management. * Good compensation, benefits and office environment. * Opportunities for advancement.

Cons

The culture can at times reinforce being seen versus getting actual work done (ie: better to be at your desk surfing the web at 7pm than actually getting things done working from home).

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Remember to trust the great employees that you have hired.

    Pros

    Jama has everything going for it: * Steady and deliberate growth both financially and personnel-wise * Employees are treated with respect, handed responsibilities and allowed to self-manage where appropriate, and guided by managers who know when and how to be supportive * Product and Development teams are dedicated to continuously improving core product and work closely with Sales and Services teams as well as external stakeholders to guide development * Company culture which encourages work-life balance, and embraces bike enthusiasts, microbrew enthusiasts, and coffee enthusiasts alike * Full transparency from the CEO-on-down to the internal team about the state of the company and strategic positioning / initiatives * Beautiful office space with plenty of room to grow, located in the Pearl district of Portland

    Cons

    Jama is growing quickly and has lost some of it's small-company / start-up charm and feel

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring only exceptional individuals who will fit into and continue to shape the already awesome company culture. Continue being transparent. Continue to encourage the creativity and passion of the employees. Keep being awesome.

    I have been working at Jama Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice office. Great place for learning and honing your skills. The newer additions to engineering and product seem to have improved processes around development as the company transitions from the 'heroics' of startup work-culture to that of a a more established company. It's okay to fail, as long as you learn from it and improve. Opportunities to move up and down the technology stack if your are interested.

    Cons

    Because the company has grown very fast, there is naturally some friction that emerges. Also, there is definitely a divide between the old guard and the new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Engineering needs some additional technical leadership.
