    I have been working at Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The talent at JMT is undeniable. Coworkers are always willing to team up for problem solving.
    Typically young, energetic employees who can make even the more seasoned gals/guys feel excited to come in.
    Excellent benefits with longevity.
    Employee Owned. Employee stock option.
    Clean bathrooms
    Yearly bonuses (for select few).

    Cons

    Growing company with limited employee pool means stressful workdays and very compressed schedules.
    Racially charged and unsettling cooler talk is a normal event.
    Women with children will have a very hard time advancing due to company politics.
    Expect management to nitpick assignments just before reviews and use as a basis for little or no raises.
    Poor work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your staff. Listening to issues after employees decide to seek employment elsewhere is not a solution.

    Pros

    Many company perks, like company picnics and discounts. They do a great job in helping non-profit organizations. Many volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    Management is very political and stringent. Some people get promoted for non relevant reasons. Management plays "favorites". Starting salaries are usually low. If you are not an engineer you will not receive good raises either. Not much room for advancement. Core values of the company are for show and not really meant.

    Pros

    There are some exceptionally talented people at this firm who are committed to results and producing quality work for clients. True leaders of industry who will leave their mark. If you are lucky you will have the opportunity to work for these individuals and you will learn an incredible amount.

    Cons

    During my employment nepotism was the name of the game. One rule, if you are talented don't be uppity, know your place as it were. Some managers prefer obedience over thinking, better to stroke their ego than actually excel at the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aspire to hire a talented diverse pool of candidates. This firm has a old boys club feel where at times it felt like half the people there because they are from the 'right' neighborhood.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, and a relaxed atmosphere most days. Reasonable pay especially for new grads.

    Cons

    Limited job mobility and guidance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge employees with less experience to help them assimilate into their respective role and contribute more to the company. Not providing enough of a challenge can lead to a lacking sense of fulfillment with the employee and is a waste of an investment.

    Pros

    The time off at JMT is awesome and flexible especially during light seasons. The employees are generally young and friendly. It is a very family like environmental and small. JMT is always going after bigger and more advanced design projects.

    Cons

    If you aren't an engineer, don't expect to make associate in the company unless you are absolutely top notch and they need to fill a manager position in the department. Those who are not engineers are typically a promotional level below engineers of similar backgrounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give feedback, communicate with other departments on projects before design, allow for career advancement inside the company, don't hire outside when you have capable leaders within the company. Never tell employees they are replaceable.

    Pros

    The offer very excellent benefits

    Cons

    Too large for personal meetings with most of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe it is challenging to lead such a large company with so many satellite offices. The company does well overall keeping everyone in touch by WAN and video conferences. I would like to see the president and members of the board of directors get around to more of the offices in order to get a more personalized idea of how the offices are running.
