    Pros

    Good benefits. Free food every now and then. There's nothing else to say here. Lots of free food. Free bagels the last Friday of the month.

    Cons

    Worse HR DEPARTMENT I've ever came across. They call them selves the "cops" there. They don't know how to treat their employees and think that their job is to scare employees and not take care of them. They feel that because they have a tittle and an office , they deserve respect although they do not respect you unless you're one of the big guys.

  2. Very conservative and traditional working environment

    Pros

    Nice colleagues. Potential for sales to earn a lot of commission. Free fruit every week.

    Cons

    No casual dress days, very conservative company. CEO can be vocal about his religious views.

    Pros

    Medical benefits are average to above average.

    Cons

    From mid-management on up there is so much insecurity and paranoia that it is suffocating any innovation and energy. They want to control everything down to the smallest decision. This causes everyone at the plant level to be robots/zombies -- not a good environment for growth and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Take some classes or instruction on how to utilize the power, energy, innovation of your employees. Quit being so paranoid. Basically, people are good and will respond positively and honestly if they are empowered to make decisions and have some independence. Take a chance -- it will work. Otherwise "Paranoia will destroy ya" (or at the very least it will stagnate ya).

    Moving in a strange direction, rigid top-down hierarchy

    Pros

    Non-salary benefits remain while other companies have eliminated them. Overly generous work-life balance (you make phone calls and check personal email anytime because everyone else does it). Company regularly and willingly sponsors visas.

    Cons

    Compensation structure is strange: well below average pay and little career advancement but you get those benefits and job security. This may be fine for those who have settled down with family, but sorry, I'm not at that stage yet. On that note, many in corporate HQ abuse the work-life generosity. More than once people have left during department meetings to work on home improvement - in all my years of working I've never seen such negligence.

    The company is a typical top-down hierarchy. All company operations must pass through the CEO, which for a firm this size means weeks to months before approval. Also, a lot of money is being invested in ramping up China production at the expense of domestic operations. It's plainly obvious the plant managers are disgruntled but there's not much they can do about it.. JM will probably remain fine regardless but the decision is a lot grayer than the executive office is willing to acknowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Institute a board - a company this size making products this important should not have its decisions made by one person. Bring salaries up to national standards.

    Pros

    Sometimes they bring in Subway. If not, you're stuck eating the greasy food downstairs or getting in your car to find fast food in the bleak and dangerous neighborhood.

    Cons

    Everyone is terrified of the company president, who makes all the decisions. It's like his own little kingdom. HR protects people who break laws and harrass.

    Advice to Management

    When you enforce corporate cruelty, you're just as guilty as the people who dictate the corporate cruelty.

    Pros

    You might find one or two nice people there with whom you might commiserate about the stifling office environment.

    Cons

    The president thinks he is ruler of the world. He makes all the decisions. HR hates all the employees except for senior-level friends. Everyone is oppressed and miserable.
