    Pros

    The best part about working for JBSS was the small office environment where you could see the senior leadership on a daily basis if you choose to.

    Cons

    The only downside of working for JBSS is that it is located in Elgin, IL which is to far to live in Chicago and work for so you have to live in the suburbs.
