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

    Pros

    Coworkers and team events. First line management was decent and quick to respond. Open door policy from lower management levels.

    Cons

    Transparent upper level management with only themselves at heart. They lack any compassion for the employees or actual success of the company. Been gone a couple years but have heard it's gotten worse and employees are jumping ship. President does not lead well or show that he cares about the company or employees that make it run for him.

    Advice to Management

    A business is built from the ground up. Keep your talent around and empower the employees, they in turn will add value to your company.

    Pros

    I joined a few months ago and already looking to get out..pay is ok but no future.

    Cons

    No future for this company. The culture absolutely sucks

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. No one seems to care and seems to just drawing money and pulling along.

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

    Pros

    Encourages continuing education by certifications. Enjoyable co-workers. Some travel involved at company expense. Overall was good experience and addition to resume.

    Cons

    We would jump from one project to another within a matter of minutes. This usually happened multiple times within a day.

    I worked at JMA IT full-time

    Pros

    Right now, in March 2016, I would say the only pro is that it's "a job". I used to love working at this company, but about 6 months ago things took a real turn for the worst. The CEO only cares about himself and not the personal and professional growth of his employees.

    Cons

    They are involved in some potentially shady practices and the contracts are unstable. The CEO is not concerned with the well being of his people, and does not even follow correct labor laws. They disbanded almost an entire branch of the company in the last month or two and the environment is very depressing and full of mistrust. It's such a shame cause it used to be fantastic.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would wish to be treated. Being hungry for money at the expense of everything else will only get you into trouble.

    Pros

    Great Company with professional management. Employee oriented

    Cons

    Contracting is always unknown at time of new contract awards.

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

    Pros

    The consulting environment allowed a lot of exposure to technology within a large global wireless carrier. The work was fast paced and demanded attention to detail.

    Cons

    I always felt like I was only on a contract and always questioned if I would still be employed when the current project was over.

    Pros

    Working at JMA is like working with open minded friends that are supportive and helpful. I love the environment and I value my coworkers and the experience and expertise they bring to the table! My voice is heard and my opinion counts. We continue to grow and innovation is expected and welcomed.

    Cons

    The open environment (seating) was a bit of a shock but I have come to really enjoy it. Working closely with my peers, rather than sitting in a cube jungle, has opened new avenues of communication and livened up the work day.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the small company feel as we grow.
