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

Pros

* Great people. Jama does a wonderful job of taking their time to hire smart, hard working people that will fit in well within the company culture.
* Great product. They are disrupting an existing industry and established market... and crushing it.
* Not too much micro-management.
* Good compensation, benefits and office environment.
* Opportunities for advancement.

Cons

The culture can at times reinforce being seen versus getting actual work done (ie: better to be at your desk surfing the web at 7pm than actually getting things done working from home).

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Remember to trust the great employees that you have hired.

    I worked at Jama Software full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people were nice and fun to work with. I felt like I made genuine friends here.

    Nice office environment. Can work from home, bring dogs in. Bike friendly

    Cons

    - No room for growth: This is true. If you are someone who is hungry to be challenged and have opportunity to grow, keep looking. You will be pigeon-holed. If you are desperate for a job, take it. But if you have other options, keep looking.

    - Poor compensation: I knew I was getting paid less than I could get somewhere else but I hoped that a promotion or something would happen soon. Nope. And when I tried to negotiate, I was given false promises. This happened to a couple other co-workers as well. So don't fall prey for it. People who successfully negotiated threatened to leave because they had other offers.

    - Lack of diversity: If you are person of color, keep looking. There is a general lack of empathy and understanding of how to manage people of color or people with diverse perspectives who don't fit into a cookie cutter box

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. Don't just watch talented people walk away. Talented people will always find a great job somewhere, so you can reward them and have them stay or watch institutional knowledge, relationships and loyalty walk out the door.
