I have been working at The Jones Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Big well-respected company, professional atmosphere, lots of smart talented employees. Great support given to Sales by Production and Design.

Cons

Some inability to get things done to due red tape or "this is the way it's always been done" attitude. Upper management is aloof and not as involved in operations as they should be.

    I have been working at The Jones Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Mostly nice people to work with

    Cons

    Was a pretty nice place to work until 2011.Terrible upper management. Too many cooks. People dictating design who know nothing about it but have power. People brought in from the outside as VPs and executives who were unqualified and receive the "Golden Parachute" after they screwed up the company. Seems like they were stealing. Unbearable place. Everyone miserable

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company has been sold do not follow in the footsteps of the last group of incompetents.
    Nowhere to go but up
