    They go above and beyond to meet employees needs.

    ProsJMP has a very open door and trusting environment. Management is very open in their communications with employees. They really put every effort in to keep employees happy, while still making fiscally responsible decisions, which is not an easy task. Personally, I appreciate the flexibility JMP offers for employees with children. They are very flexible with working with your schedule, allowing you to work from home when needed, and putting family first. Great place to work!

    ConsThere is no such thing as a perfect place to work. If there were, there wouldn't be any people. While things aren't sunshine and roses all the time, I really couldn't ask for more from an employer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage the expectations of employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sounds good at first until you uncover the details

    ProsExcellent benefits plan - ...The best I've ever seen. Theoretical pay scale is somewhat below normal but acceptable - except for - see Cons - This is a serious concern.

    ConsFull time employees compete with subcontractor-employees for the same projects
    - unpaid 74/7 on call status - Employee is ONLY paid if time is billable to a customer!
    There is no assurance that there will be any work assignments - you can go weeks with no income even though you remain on call and bound by a non-compete. At management whim you may find yourself with nothing to do and therefore no income. I was sanctioned for raising this concern. Sanctions consist primarily of no work assignments even though there is plenty of demand. I have filled in 'full time' in this survey but full time might consist of zero hours. Best you consider this just like an on-call contract with no minimum number of hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart playing fair with everyone - customers, employees, vendors

    Unlimited Potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsJMP Engineering is a growing, dynamic company. The company is very focused on customer satisfaction. Management communicates openly with its employees, provides them growth opportunities, challenging work assignments and a flexible work schedule. JMP is very focused on their core values and ensuring employees stay true to them.

    ConsJMP needs to refine some of their processes so that as they grow and expand the processes in place are still suitable.

    Needs help

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, ON (Canada)

    ProsJMP is a company with lots of potential. The focus on customer satisfaction is great. The drive to provide a 10/10 experiece is a good thing. Some very bright and dedicated people supporting clients

    ConsEmployee management needs improvement. Management seems disconnected from employees and while management talks a good story, follow-through is lacking During the recession there were many decisions that had significant negative impact on employees. Senior management has all the latest buzzwords, has read all the latest books and is quick to jump on ideas from consultants. More focus on helping the staff that manage and complete projects would be a huge help. Proper tools/ training is also lacking in many cases resulting in additional stress for staff working on projects/ applications they are not familiar with. Management also seem to have favorite employees and/or divisions that can do no wrong and other staff clearly see this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the needs of staff. You want 10/10 for clients but tell staff 7/10 is fine for compensation and benefits for employees. Meaningless awards do not bring it to a 10/10 experience. Get staff the training and tools they need to do their jobs. The benefits will be immediate. Focus on profitable projects and not high dollar/high risk projects.

    As good as you want to make it

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    London, ON (Canada)

    ProsThey allow and encourage you to pursue responsibilities that interest you as long as it supports the overall business plan

    ConsThey don't have seasoned resources at all management level positons
    They are a growing company so not all processes are in place

    Needs Improvement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsJMP is a technology company with lots of potential. They have a diverse mix of clients and focus on customer satisfaction.

    ConsEmployee management needs improvement. Since the economy turned and made projects more difficult to find, many decisions have been made that puts employee focus at the bottom of priorities. Upper management has a lot of nice words, but it generally doesn't translate into action.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe description in cons above should be enough advice to management. JMP has so much potential. It is a wonder why they have let things deteriorate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
