    The benefits are fantastic. Every employee receives an annual bonus. There are two retirement plans. Discounts on cars are good. Great overall company culture. Lots of activities and perks for employees.

    Like in all companies, management in certain departments is not great.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Associates are consistently trained and motivated in a positive manager.

    Cons

    Although diversity is often mentioned. In principle, it is not followed in thought or deed.. Can be a bit restrictive and limiting as far as creativity is concerned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you speak of diversity, ensure your actions are consistent with your words. Currently I did not find that to be the case.

    I have been working at JM Family Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Salary? medical and dental are decent. profit sharing isn't a bad option but it's nothing moving in my opinion

    Cons

    Place seems to be very clique oriented to me. Managers giving you feedback on nothing they know about is probably the most disturbing thing I've noticed here. How can someone be in charge of my career and knows absolutely nothing of what I do on a day to day basis? Kool-aid here is strong (drink it or else) and I sense some tension here.

    I worked at JM Family Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great salary, great management, great benefits, great opportunities especially at the lower and middle levels of the company. Management truly cares and values associates.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility beyond director. Micro-management and some over-reaction to even the slightest mistakes. Need to diversify the company a bit beyond automobile industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the right people in the right roles and then trust them to do their job!

    I have been working at JM Family Enterprises full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Focus on family. Always moving forward. Following Kaizen.

    Cons

    Not many cons. In every business and in every department, there are ebbs and flows. There will be times when things get frustrating. The important thing to remember as associates is the we need to trust that senior management is making the right decisions for the right reasons, even though we may not understand the reasons at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure associates know why we are working on a given project. Understanding the big picture goes a long way.

    I worked at JM Family Enterprises as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible
    Great middle management
    Founder instilled good company values that are still practiced by the employees and middle management
    Philanthropic company with great benefits and events for employees

    Cons

    Outsourcing and or layoffs approximately every few years or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your associates and contractors and grow the company instead of purging every few years and having to retrain new associates or contractors. In the long run does this really help the bottom line?
