    I worked at JAM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, awesome staff, and business casual. Very good pay and benefits. If you like good money, music and a good team this is the place to work.

    Cons

    There is no cons to this place, that I have seen. It really is a great place to work as long as you can get your job done, there should not be any problems.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work...

    I have been working at JAM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Environment! Great staff! Work hard Play hard mentality. It is easy to get along with JAM employees, relaxed environment, with a nice office space, cafeteria always serve something that will appeal to anyone. People are happy to come to work, and are passionate about what they do, I recommend JAM to anyone who's looking for a good opportunity, where they will be surrounded by good people.

    Cons

    Career Advancement is at times hard to come by. However, there has been a lot of growth in the most recent years which has created opportunities across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for showing that you care about your employees :)

    Pros

    Good company. Very nice people.

    Cons

    Low salary. Big problem for parking. No space to park. Especially if you are on shifts. Management not flexible with working hours at all.

    Advice to Management

    We are not slaves. We all have families and priorities. Hours should be flexible. Such as 8:30 to 5:30. Walking to parking space takes roughly 10 minutes. Mr. STEWART GIVE YOUR EMPLOYEES FLEXIBLE HOURS. WE ARE NOT IN LA AND SHOULD NOT WORK LA HOURS.

    Pros

    Some department are great, with good people.

    Cons

    Very low salaries, with very some terrible working conditions in certain departments. Big turnover for employees that can't handle the treatment. Management can be very verbally abusive and lack in leadership skills. Lots of stress leaves and people quitting mid day from snapping.

    Advice to Management

    Hr needs to address the abusive nature in which some of their employees are working in. As well as provide management with communication and leadership training.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at JAM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people working there

    Cons

    Zero leadership, zero procedures, zero cohesive vision for departments as a whole who need to all work together to achieve their goals properly. It's like the 80's sales and management model is still in place and they are scratching their heads wondering what's wrong with their clients, staff and vendors. Zero self awareness as to who is the actual problem.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school, learn distribution best practices (both internal and external) and then manage.
