    I have been working at JM SWANK full-time (Less than a year)

    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!
