Pros

good job selections and the chance to work in exciting places. the client list is great and there are exciting opportunities.

Cons

the salaries could be better, but benefits are ok. i have worked in better places, but i have also worked in worse places. the use of cubicles is not to everybodys liking, but the we are coping for the moment. I think they may be building a new building soon to help with all of this.

    Pros

    J. Ray is a good company to work for if, your in the "In Crowd". In the field front line management is great and works with the employees in the field. Good compensation for employees usually and most of the employees in the field are friendly, competent, and hard workers

    Cons

    Upper management needs help. There is hardly any communication between upper management and field supervision. The only thing that is communicated is "negative" and not to many positives. Most of the employees have the "fear" that they might be next to be fired or layed off. It's a very "top down" company and field employees cannot make decisions on their own without worrying about repercussion from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to communicate with the workers with face to face talking.... not messages, emails or anything else. They need to take the time to meet with the workers and discuss any problems they may have, rather than decide without knowledge of what's really going on in the field!

    Pros

    JRM offers a great salary and are great people to work for and with for the most part (there's always one or two in every company who are hard to work with). For the most part, everyone works as a team no matter their position in the company or as a contractor. Employees and contract employees are treated with respect. It seems that, when hiring, how a person will fit in seems to be considered in addition to their qualifications to make sure everyone can work as a team. I think this is a great company to work for and plan to stay a very long time!

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet after more than a year except that most positions are dependent upon projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
