I worked at JIMS (More than a year)
Great culture, great people to work with. Laid back environment. Teamwork environment.
When there are problems, people look on who to blame instead of solutions. Current company rules and procedures are not followed instead, they do whatever they've been doing for "20 years". Gossips and rumors can roam around. There's no clear development plan. Unqualified people get management positions and hinders the company's development.
Advice to Management
Jim, the owner, is the only smart person in management. The other people in management are either severely under qualified and/or way too demanding which only serves as an annoyance to Jim which has to babysit the management, therefore there's a lot of micromanagement. All in all there's a famous saying that goes like this.
"There's the right way and there's the JIMS way"
I have no advice for management since they like it exactly the way it is. The management is a group of friends that have shared many experiences together and to them their friendship is more important than the health of the company so they rather work with that instead of doing the right thing.
