    I worked at JM Family Enterprises

    Pros

    The experience is amazing. I was involved in many projects and was able to learn from a multitude of very smart employees. The corporate culture is positive and the people who work in it truly to enjoy their job. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would return if the opportunity arose.

    Cons

    The buildings are a bit farther apart than you want to walk in the summer heat in a business suit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work; you make your interns feel like family and it goes a long way.

    I worked at JM Family Enterprises full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture is great - there are no jerks allowed.
    Benefits (12% profit sharing) can't be found elsewhere

    Cons

    People don't usually leave voluntarily making it hard to move up unless someone above you moves out.
    Slow culture. If you are a Type A it will be difficult first to slow down and go with the work flow.
    Executive management is very much in control. The family is no longer involved in operating positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This the herd to provide opportunities for your true talent.

    I worked at JM Family Enterprises full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. Great cafeterias, free coffee/tea, nail/hair salon, gym, company events, continuing education -- best I've ever experienced.

    Cons

    Major league backbiting and politics. I worked for a very strange and fairly new department which will go unnamed. Very intelligent people, but oh-so lacking in reality. No professional savvy with the group I worked for and most of the people either kept to themselves or paired off with a few others. You won't be 'let in' to the group. Don't even try to ask for help ... you are pretty much on your own. The person who ran this unique department had major ego issues ... most of them did. They use Gmail as their company email platform --- odd, odd, odd. If you are a contractor, your chances of being hired permanently are quite slim, regardless of what recruiters tell you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with the good ole boy network. Enough with the over reaching egos --- JM is not the only cool place to work, so get over yourselves. This Kool-Aid drinking environment is "so ten minutes ago". You are not splitting the atom or curing cancer, so enough. You are not the next Stephen Hawking -- climb down off the ego ladder, please. Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attempt to eliminate favoritism when it comes to management.
