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

Pros

The pay is fair. Provid gym and restaurant inside office. Benefits can be good. Upper management has some great ideas, if they can pull that off, Jack will succeed.

Cons

Franchising corporate sites was a mistake. No money left to do the job correctly. If you are in upper management benefits are great!
Lost touch with who built the brand in the field and in corporate and regional offices. Franchises offer no benefits. lower pay than corporate restaurants. Corporate office gets less money, and less support for the field. Franchisees are left to sink or they are too concerned about the bottom-line, so they cut cost which affect customers. Franchises pay employees less, employees transferred to franchises lose benefits, time served, they get cut in pay or have to leave. And the franchise under staff compared to corporate sites, which create poor customer service to customers. Many of the last 100 or so restaurants were sold for a song to achieve 80% or so franchise percentage, before scheduled.

Corporate employees are oblivious to this.

Jack can succeed if it is not allowed to be driven into the ground.

Advice to Management

Franchising is great it can expand the brand, that is how are competitors grew! Selling off our corporate sites and cutting pay to field employees, by way of franchising is not the way.
