    I worked at Jobson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress code, flexible WFH, easy to impress management b/c the avg employee should be working at Panera

    Cons

    Real accomplishments go unrecognized. I wasn't even in sales and brought in a red hot new client who spent 6 figures 2 straight yrs (that's a big client at jobson). They recognize the trivial things like "hey nicely written email" or " thanks for doing ______ (some simple part of your daily routine). They don't utilize data to drive decisions they just make you waste days doing analysis and reports which are rarely read or understood without spoon feeding the data. 90% of the company is on Facebook all day and leave at 4:59 while the talented motivated (the rare ones) do all the work. They'll ride you into the ground if you are smart and motivated. I literally was working 90 hours a week and up til 3-4 am consistently towards the end. My next job will produce the salary I deserved, although to be fair my comp was fair at first. They had to post 2 jobs to replace me that's how overworked I was!

    Advice to Management

    Talent is hard to come by at jobson. Cherish it, reward it, if you ever find some again
