Great place to work...just needs to develop and grow its people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bethlehem, PA

I worked at Just Born full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThis company is a family-oriented organization that has a unique culture or open-door management and family relationship values. The company values the community that it resides in and really "walks the talk" when it comes to giving back.

ConsThe slow career growth potential and often under-resourced environments make it difficult for motivated individuals to remain motivated and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind unique ways to foster career/educational growth within the organization and make sure departments are staffed adequately to achieve the goals put in front of them.

Long-term employee with a better perspective.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bethlehem, PA

I worked at Just Born full-time for more than 10 years

ProsJust Born looks great from the outside; it even appears fun when you step inside. The talk is good and the philosophy/vision would be great if they were true.

ConsBeware! Once you are inside, it will not look nearly as good as it did with the rose-colored glasses you wore outside. The line waiting to get out may be as long as the one waiting to get in.

Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach. If you say it (and if you hang it on your wall), you need to walk it as well. Go back to empowering those who work for you. Allow them to do their job!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work. Great company feel. Old habbits die hard.

Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at Just Born

ProsGreat friendly atmosphere. Hard work is well recognized. Lots of "low hanging fruit" just waiting for someone with initiative. The place is improving rapidly.

ConsWith everyone up to their ears in work, it is often difficult to find help. People have disagreements on priorities. A lot of more experienced workers have ideas but have given up on trying to be heard .

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to your operatiors for ideas. If you determine those are bad ideas, give them feedback. Include operators in the improvement process. Stick to perfecting the production of your core products.
