  1.  

    A relaxed atmosphere, but not exactly enthralling work.

    I have been working at JB&R full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are really easy to get along with and make the atmosphere easy to work in. I found my supervisors approachable and professional.

    Cons

    The work can be monotonous at times. Periods of vast boredom are marked with the occasional intriguing case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being available to work with employees. It is effective. But, try to diversify their job duties (ultimately making your workforce more malleable).

    I worked at JB&R full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The work itself keeps you busy all day.
    Met coworkers that are very friendly and can be very supportive.
    If you know how to text than this is the place you want to work.
    You can text your friends all day, ignore your work and no one will say a word about it.
    If you have children they are very flexible with your time especially if you are a friend.

    Cons

    Training is a joke and you are left to figure things out yourself.
    Supervisors have no idea what their workers are doing and cannot help most of them if there is an issue.
    People that work the hardest are treated like they are not working and the people that are
    texting or on their cell phones all day have nothing said to them.
    Many family members hired which are the laziest people you ever want to work with.
    Mass lay offs of full time, long time employees the last 2 years leaving a huge mess for the remaining employees.
    No advancement unless you are in the supervisors immediate circle of friends.
    Benefits cut for full time workers.
    Part time workers with no benefits hired to replace full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where does one start?
    So this does not turn into a rant start with the following.
    Make your supervisors accountable for their ignorance and lack of knowledge of work that is given to their employees. Employees cannot get answers from their supervisors and many problems go unresolved leaving accounts unattended for months or years or the possibility of
    counter suits.
    Good luck in the future of your company.

    I have been working at JB&R part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible working hours, clearly defined expectations, fair amount of autonomy

    Cons

    Boring, tedious, huge amount of 'busy' work that could be eliminated by even a mediocre programmer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the processes, there are a huge number of redundancies that are unnecessary. If you eliminated a lot of the manual processes, you could greatly reduce the amount of clerical work and increase the profit margin significantly. If you get someone in there with both programming and analytical savvy, it wouldn't be hard to do.
