    I have been working at JM SWANK as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress environment. Very friendly atmosphere. You know just about everyone who works here and everyone is usually nice to one another. Help is given without a second thought.

    Cons

    good communication of expectations or what exactly is to be done is not always present. This is because of the fast paced environment, which is good but also can lead to things like this. Thrown into the fire a little lit; shown things a few times then expected to do them alone, but like I said help is given if there is confusion.

    Advice to Management

    NA.

    Pros

    I recently joined JM Swank and am enjoying the culture. It's a nice mix of long tenured staff and new hires. Everyone has that friendly "Iowa Nice" attitude and helps each other out.

    It's an exciting time as we transition to a stand-alone company and drive for growth. We are investing in many areas to enable that growth. We get to control our own destiny!

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change and that always presents challenges with communication. There is a lot of effort to address this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the drive to grow and improve the culture!
