Pros

JBH is a strong company and will probably be around for years to come. Work life balance is ok to good and a couple of the IT managers are good people with good ethics and morals.

Cons

Senior management focuses on what benefits them, not necessarily the company. This lack of leadership and ethical standards has fostered a layer of managers that would not last long in a normal workplace. Some of the sharpest technical people have left the company for the sole reason of poor management.

Advice to Management

People are a company's most valuable asset. I think the CIO has lost touch with the day to day workings of the IT department and doesn't see the downturn occuring.

    Pros

    Open to new technology and business idea's.
    Shares information about the business with non core areas.
    C-Suit members are very easy to approach.
    Good place to intern.

    Cons

    Limited vertical mobility. Openings are generally filled from the outside and are not offered to internal candidates. People are seen as expenses rather than assets. Very low level of job satisfaction in general. VP level takes pride in "running thin" to make budget look good but causes a high level of burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Profits are good, EPS is high. These are great things for investors and bonuses. Good people are leaving and more will follow as the economy improves. People have turned the other cheek as many times as they can.
