    Pros

    If you are desperate for work, you can use this company to apply for another one that offers "real" job security.

    Cons

    In-house PR flood media with embellished information of company probability and "great work environment". Reality: A mayhem work environment, anyone not related to co-founders must work in a constant state of emergency or risk losing their job, regardless of tenure. Work environment is stressful due to over commitment to clients. High turn over, a nebulous structure. An extreme top-heavy company with an unstable future. Executive officers are present in name only and managers struggle to do their job without training or experience in their departmental fields. All media articles about this company and work environment are embellished.

    Advice to Management

    Quit while you're ahead- stop treating employees as slaves and disposable trash. Compensate employees.

    Pros

    Worked with some really nice folks there. They have a good business model, just need better execution.

    Cons

    The CEO likes to yell at his employees / accuse them of "stealing their paychecks". He is a smart guy, but he could use some psychiatric medication.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on execution. Value your employees. Autonomy, mastery, and purpose make for a happy, motivated workforce.

    Jagged Peak constantly changes their focus because they are a struggling company.

    Pros

    If you are a new in your field, you may gain a few months of experience in your area, other areas and realize what kind of corporation you do not want to work for.

    Cons

    Jagged Peak has a very high turnover rate, is unstable and burdens its workers with unrealistic workloads. Organizational culture is always a function of the CEO and his executives, but it is absent here. Whatever they do, however they behave, sends messages down through the organization. Executive affairs, talk of a coup, partner mistrust over corporate spending, and self motivated decision making by the CEO may make you feel insecure about your position. “Lower level employees are faceless numbers to executives and are treated like pawns in a chess game against each other and to clients”. “Basically you’ll be fighting real hard to impress a new client and lose an existing client. Jagged Peak is very disorganized, has no respect of rules or regulations and confidentiality. The rules change as they go and decide who is excluded from them and who is not. Getting caught up in the hypocrisy of Jagged Peak may damage your career more then build it.

    Advice to Management

    "Make up your mind what you want to do, where you want to compete." Jagged Peaks focus on "activity metrics" and "growth expectations" over "team morale" creates a "hostile work environment." Stop asking employees to lie to clients ignoring strong convictions to do the right thing and give the clients what they are actually paying for.

    Pros

    A very Fast Paced Growing Company. Good products portfolio. Most of their clients are "A" class. The management team always look for continuous improvements. sufficient social events to the employees.

    Cons

    Salaries are a little below average. Review meetings are not necessarily on time. Criticism is part of the culture, even few criticism will be included in an appreciation statement.

    Advice to Management

    Start to listen more to the experienced employees points of view.
