    I have been working at Jervis B. Webb

    Pros

    Great employee events - from the summer picnic to the holiday potluck there's always events scheduled. It's nice to meet other people during these events who you might otherwise not run into. People are friendly and willing to help out. The benefits are great - health, dental, vision, 401K.

    Cons

    Change is continuously happening - don't expect to have the same day twice. I enjoy this, others may find it a little bit overwhelming.

    Lot of politics and not enough positive growth or true appreciation of its employees and team.

    I worked at Jervis B. Webb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It has a long history and has been around a long time. Typical benefits, not terrible, not better than average.

    Cons

    Very old fashioned company, not very forward thinking in their policies or benefits. Also there are a lot of company politics at play. Management is not very fair or genuinely concerned with its employees happiness. Very reactive company. The company morale is often low and there are some very underserving executives in the company who seem determined to keep it that way. Management keeps the wrong guys in charge and promotes those who are not really interested in the company's welfare but their own welfare. It should be a great company but in actuality its a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the management team, they are killing the company morale and employees who are not happy do not perform well.

    Pros

    Benefits are second to NONE. Part of a larger, growing global company. Managers work hard and are very friendly.

    Cons

    Legacy policies can be cumbersome, but with the right people to help influence change those will be updated very soon. Change is frequent but that also means the company is improving and getting better!

    I worked at Jervis B. Webb as a contractor

    Pros

    None. They didn't offer anything better than any other company I've worked for in the past.

    Cons

    Micromanagement and talking down to your employees isn't great for morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as assets, and not liabilities.

    Pros

    Challenging, always new hurdles to overcome. Good variety of work. Company is doing more to push underperformers out (however slowly).

    Cons

    Still stuck in an old automotive culture that doesn't work. Totally reactive. Information not readily shared with everyone that needs it. Pay is lower than you'd think. There is a saying in the field that the company will step over a $20 to pick up a dime. Staffed by a number of complacent people who have been there a long time and are engrained in some outdated mentalities. No real opportunities for advancement. Not many processes defined and followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do not always know best. You make mistakes too - admit them and turn them into growing experiences. Support your people, and show it. Start sharing more information down the chain and get their ideas - you can't solve all the problems, but you can delegate and set a better example.
