    I have been working at JBT full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working at JBT provides opportunities to challenge yourself outside of your comfort zone, allows you to develop relationships with other JBT employees from different cultures and countries, and gives you peace of mind knowing you're working for a stable company that has been in business for more than 100 years. I'm probably a little biased because I've been here a long time, but I would say that most of the managers here really do care about their employees. Sometimes tough decisions need to be made, but overall, my location has a good group of managers, some relatively new ones, and many longer-tenured like me.

    Cons

    This is a very demanding environment. Lots of reporting is required across many different functional areas. A standard 8-hour day is a rare occurrence for most people.

    Pros

    JBT is a very lean organization which allows for room to grow within your role - you can be more creative and take your role in different directions to add value. There are many opportunities for you to expand your knowledge, and company training reinforces your professional development. Employees are approachable at all levels of the organization. The HR team goes out of its way to support employees with personal assistance in the office. HR cares for employees' personal needs like The JBT Pantry, holiday recognitions and employee acknowledgements like service awards and retirements. Managers, Supervisors and Team Leads know their teams on a personal level, leading to more empathy, understanding and flexibility to better meet employee needs.

    Cons

    Diversity is lacking in upper management throughout the company, but over the past few months JBT has made an intentional effort to focus on diversity and inclusion. Work/Life balance is often an issue.

    Pros

    Co-workers and functional teams work well together. Employees are accountable and held to a high standard. You will work hard here. Decisions are made quickly and moves fast. Employee health and safety are top priorities. Redesigned HR Dept makes it functional, communicative and supportive to the employees and the business.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is tough. We really work hard and the time off in comparison to other companies is low. Zero training was provided, at least for my position. Trial by fire.
