Jacada - not bad for a starting point

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Jacada

Prosstock options, decent people to work with, great place to be a consultant if you like to travel, benefits are good, but not the greatest. Company has money in the bank

ConsSenior Management has no clue on how to run a profitable organization. Past CEO thought that walking around and yelling at people was considered motivation. He was a sales guy that should have stayed with sales.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop freely spending the money on items like paper flags to cover the walls. Use it for something important like good marketing efforts and consultant training.

Jacada was once a great place to work, and it can be again.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Jacada

ProsJacada has a lot of smart people, and great technology. Under the correct circumstances, Jacada could become the dominant force in automation techologies.

ConsOver the past few years, a lot of the perks of working for Jacada were slowly taken away to help out the company's bottom line. This was spear-headed by Paul O'Callaghan, the company's previous CEO. He turned Jacada from a warm, inviting, fun, small company to a cold, desolate corporate wasteland.

Advice to Senior ManagementJacada's management should make Jacada a fun place to work again, and focus on creating new opportunites for current employees. As it is, there's little to no room for growth within the organization,

Cool technologies, some talented people, company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jacada

ProsAutonomy to get the job done, cool technologies, some really talented people, lack of structure, good work/life balance. Great place to build up your work skills.

ConsTendency to treat every employee like a short term resource. Frequent changes in management can alienate employees, some changes are more successful than others. Recognition is in short supply. Management not really open to hearing about issues facing employees or customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlways keep in mind that customers and employees are your greatest assets and work accordingly. Consider more promotions within versus hiring external resources.
