I have been working at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good working hours, good pay.

Cons

Quixotic leadership following will of the wisp ideas, no tribal knowledge maintained.

Advice to Management

Study your company's history. Get a better sense of the group knowledge by removing the fear of reprisal when comments don't follow the required party line. Get outside of your clique of yes men and women. Get out of your office and visit the peasants occassionally without your posse.

    I worked at Jack in the Box full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None, other than every other Friday off (corporate policy).

    Cons

    Morale is terrible, layoffs almost every week, top-heavy structure, management does NOT listen to employees. JIB isa sinking ship. Used to be a great place to work when run like "family" business. No more. And if you are the wrong gender (male), you are doomed. Petty and child-like place to work. Not sophisticated al all. RUN away!!!

    Advice to Management

    You might want to get rid of most mid-level managers and director's by actually ASKING people who work for them for their input. And the direction you are taking this company is being questioned across the board by those lower level employess you will not talk too. Good employess have been and will be leaving in droves.

    Pros

    You get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is kind of scary. Multiple times I was told to "just drink the cool aide" (direct quote) when referring to getting on board with changes in the Corporate Values.
