    Pros

    Jackson Healthcare the Parent company is amazing! On site health clinic, restaurant, and gym! With the new building I’m sure the upgrades to this company will be amazing.

    Cons

    This company only pays attention to the sales side of things. Support staff is treated like they don’t matter and are easily replaceable. **Inability to telecommute!** one of the only companies under the Jackson Healthcare umbrella who WILL NOT allow their employees to telecommute. This is the way corporate America is leaning yet this company is still moving at a snails pace in keeping up.

    Advice to Management

    Consider allowing employees to telecommute once a week at least based on tenure. Many people will wind up leaving if this adjustment is not made soon.

    Pros

    Great parent company
    Good benefits
    Beautiful building
    Great amenities

    Cons

    I've never worked with so many unprofessional people in my life! Most of the "leadership" team is dishonest, insincere and standoffish. The open door policy is a lie-- they want you to feel comfortable and like you can voice your opinions, but as soon as you do, you've basically written yourself out of ever getting a promotion or ability to move to another department. "Leaders" are the biggest gossips in the company and are the worst at being an example of the company's core values.

    Very little opportunity for growth. It's all smoke and mirrors.

    Many of us would go to our sister company in a heartbeat if we were allowed.

    Our parent company would cringe if they knew what was really going on.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to lead
    Be more professional
    Accept constructive criticism
    Be apathetic
    Be honest
    Be respectful
    Be trustworthy
    Stop playing favorites
    Stop hiring and promoting your buddies

    Pros

    Great company to work for. J & C treats people very well and provides tremendous benefits such as an on-site gym and restaurant. The technology is state of the art and the work environment is collaborative.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything lacking in what they offer.

    Pros

    - Great amenities! They promote a healthy work/life balance which I imagine is especially important for the sales men and women. On-site clinic, gym, food hall, etc.
    - Bonus potential for everyone: everybody gets a chance to compete against themselves to do their job more efficiently and are rewarded for it!
    - The growth is exciting!
    - Character-filled: sure it's a company and every company needs to make money. Thankfully, this company does it's best to promote their values in everything they do!
    - If you don't fit where you are they will find a place you do fit!

    Cons

    - The PTO plan is a bit stingy and working from home is not allowed unless you are a "chosen one." That can be tough when you have a vacation planned but get sick a few weeks before you leave.
    - You have to take a full hour break each day so you end up at work longer than you have to be
    - The sales people are definitely the "golden children" of the company, but that doesn't bother everyone! I like playing on a team!

    Pros

    Jackson & Coker is a role-model for how many more companies should be: Employee & Customer-centric. They hire people with great skills and attitude and provide a very comprehensive solution for employees including healthcare, fitness, lunches, vacation time, education and mentoring.

    Cons

    Maybe could embrace the concept of telecommuting a bit more

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Great leaders. Very supportive of work-life balance and creating a positive work environment for employees. I have watched them be continuously supportive of employees going through death of a parent, pregnancy and child-care issues. They have a gym and other amenities for their employees that really show they care.

    Cons

    This is not the place for those with poor work ethic. It's a sales environment and you get what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the positive and supportive work culture as you grow.
