It was my dream job and I miss the job. Sorry to see company change.

I worked at The Jones Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It used to be the company--classes, training programs, great benefits, bonuses, and employee discount.

Cons

Every division has different rules. You could have the same position in one division and leave at 3 o'clock, while in another division you might work through a state of emergency snow day. To top it off you might sit next to the person who can leave early. Managers are part of a cliché and do not see the big picture easily. The atomsphere lends to bullying and favoritism. Design and its elements are always chaging to no avail, while directors never change and you see many people losing jobs.

Advice to Management

The Jones group always had excellent values overall. However, I have witnessed top managers being abusive by imitating a persons disability. By making an employee stay on a day which state declared an emergency. By suggesting that a vendor should comply with company wishes because they were "boyfriend' to employee.

    I worked at The Jones Group full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, company-match, average pay, trying to set itself apart from others by offering classes. Company values feel like words the marketing team made up. However, people are nice to work with and many are very hard-working.

    Cons

    Numerous changes in management and downsizing creates an uncertain working environment. Management comes down to individual people and their skill sets. Too many people and too many levels slows down the development process. Having multiple people doing the same things does allow you to take your vacation time. Little growth. HR seems to be making up their own titles (probably to set their cap on salaries) so be aware when comparing with other companies. As in many places, some people are favored for unknown reasons. Office politics? Hope you have an office with a door for your own sanity.

    Advice to Management

    If you are still there and not beaten down, try to recognize people for the extra effort they are putting in. Even if the upper echelons of management have sold their souls to the Board or whoever will get them their next position, we do look to you for leadership. What you DO provide, we see and appreciate.
