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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    I guess the office looks okay.

    Cons

    Easily the worst company I have ever had the displeasure to work for. There's so much BS within the company that I can't fathom that anything gets done. Time and time again my ideas get shot down and we go with some zany plan that the PMs came up with out of nowhere with no reality based on it.

    Terrible hours and crap pay to boot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to fire all of HR and a good deal of your management if you want to come anywhere close to relevant.
