    I worked at Jones & Carter full-time

    Pros

    A company that really cares about their employees! Lots of training options/seminars and Fridays are half days. They're a smaller company but are growing quickly. They're a great group and make an effort to have fun while still getting work done.

    Cons

    Different departments do not interact as much on a daily basis. You mainly stay in your department, but that could have been more of a problem at my building because of the architecture of the building. It was a bit maze-like.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on expanding marketing and attracting top talent to the firm. I think the internal training JC University is one of the most attractive things about the company, especially to younger EITs.

    Pros

    I was with my last company for many years and I wanted to break out of gigantic corporate America to work for a firm that makes a difference in the community. That is how I found Jones and Carter. The leadership at Jones and Carter really care about the people. The new CEO is very cognizant of the needs of the people and makes decisions based on a balance of the needs of the firm and the needs of the people. People are in the forefront of his mind. I know this because I have seen him in action. My colleagues are great, too. I can truly say that I enjoy working with everyone here. It is an amazing place during an exciting time. One of my favorite aspects is the work/life balance. We work 4 9-hour days and a half day on Fridays. I like this better than what many oil and gas companies do with every other Friday off. Knowing I get off work at noon every Friday allows me to enjoy nearly a 3-day weekend every week! Also, they pay for employee medical. It hasn't been since I was in a union years ago that this was even an option.

    Cons

    I have no cons to point out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path of collaboration and building excellence

    I have been working at Jones & Carter full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only pros are reserved for a select 8

    Cons

    Leaders are lost, owners are greedy. They care more about appearances than people. New 'Teams" all over the place but nothing gets done. New CEO stays locked up so he does not have to face the people. I guess its hard for him to look people in the eye knowing what he is doing. They are loosing lots of long term people and will continue to loose more but that's what the hired him for.

    Advice to Management

    man up and do the dirty work instead of hiding behind rainbows.

    Pros

    close to home. 1/2 day Friday but don't count on getting off.

    Cons

    expect to see more positive reviews here from the new marketing team. New "liberal" management will treat you like a #. Its like a high school here. Many closed off cliques. Very hard to fit in when the company is ran by ghosts. Management passes the buck and their is no accountability. New professional CEO only knows how to be a CEO-nothing industry specific. Was a good conservative Texas company. Not anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your managers and practice leaders accountable for their failures.-don't condemn whole practices\department for managements failures. Instead of trying to grow past 500 employees. Manage what you have and get your processes down before you throw away peoples lives.

    Pros

    I will be leaving soon.

    Cons

    New management does not know the industry. Employees are just $. company is split between foreign new "leadership" and the old guard. In this instance change is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Old cotton management was better.

    Pros

    none-anymore. Don't try to make it work.

    Cons

    New (out of town)CEO with his own agenda contracts with his own "contacts" to wipe out entire departments. He cares NOTHING of the employees. Their new "values" are a joke and are a direct contradiction to their actions.

    Advice to Management

    By the time you guys figure it out he will be back in MD.


  11. As I worked for Jones&Carters Inc, as a administrative assistant I managed the filing paperwork.

    I have been working at Jones & Carter part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team work is what made me love the job so much more than any other job i have ever had. It feels good when they treat you like family and we all help each other. It had great schedule, it worked around my college classes and at the same time the pay was great.

    Cons

    It was only a temporary position.
