    Pros

    Excellent corporate culture. All employees are known as associates and the organization treats them as such. The company and owners are very philanthropic and care about and contribute to the community. Within the company there are many diverse opportunities for different types of work experience and there is great collaboration between associates and departments to serve our customers.

    Cons

    A little slow to adapt processes and technology for remote workers, but starting to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep open minds and open ears - ideas come from everywhere . . . associates of all levels, customers, and community.

    I have been working at J. J. Keller full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture; the people are really great.

    Cons

    Sales isn't for everybody, so consider this before applying for a sales position.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for quicker transitions between roles. 18 months is a long time to be in a sales roll that maybe isn't what people want to do. 6 months is more manageable to grind it out if you're not liking the position.

    Pros

    Great training program. Excellent. They spend the time to teach you everything you need to know and offer great continued support.

    Cons

    Commission structures are often 'reassessed' often times limiting or even lessening the money you were earning or have the potential to earn.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees break the ceiling with uncapped commission and employees would stay longer and make you more money.

    I worked at J. J. Keller full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned so much about marketing, planning, sales, research and business working at J. J. Keller & Associates. They gave me every opportunity to expand my skills and grow. Family really cares about its employees and making it a great place to work. Made many connections and friendships! Challenging in a good way.

    Cons

    Only con is that they ran out of growth opportunities for me. I advanced a lot but ultimately decided to grow outside the company. I would go back if they had a place for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Great company, lots of perks with some bonus' and chances to move up within the company. Would recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    Could have higher hourly rates for certain departments due to the amount of stress some positions offer, but it's not a super unfair wage either.

    I have been working at J. J. Keller (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing company with some opportunity to advance. Have been promoted twice in five years. Most departments have decent work/life balance and flexibility not all though. Community focused family. Onsite health clinic and gym.

    Cons

    Managed services VP is weak and ineffective and routinely changes direction which flows down to all associates.
    Poor performing associates at all levels are allowed to continue getting paid while the rest of us carry the weight of the work each day......probably happens in all companies.

    Advice to Management

    Continually evaluate the abilities of your senior leadership. So much frustration we feel each day is avoidable with better leadership and decisions. Managed Services is a hard place to be most days even though sales are good.
