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

    Pros

    Good place to work. Small mom & pop environment with friendly people and small perks. Low stress and also at times low motivation.

    Cons

    Focused too much on the long-term financial success of the mostly related owners. Some owners not qualified for the job title the hold it the role they perform.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable now as they sold to Genpact and more have left. Those who remain have not acclimated well.

    Pros

    CEO was very hands on with the people. Corporate office and on-site teams were like a family. Recruiting staff worked very hard to place contractors. They pay was not very good, but the environment compensated for that.

    Cons

    They probably were some things lacking but they hid them very well. I guess, the fact that the wages were not very competitive. And maybe to many project managers.

    Pros

    None! Very misleading organization! Don't be fooled! Don't quit your job to go to Jawood!

    Cons

    Training, job description does not match the work. Management and the Supervisor have no clue as to what they're doing!

    Advice to Management

    Get trained, do the job and then you can understand the employee frustration. Mass exodus is upon them. Don't waste your time on this company.

    I worked at Jawood full-time

    Pros

    The benefits that are available- they are excellent. 401 k, insurance: dental, vision and health. Pizza Friday- taken away. Massages- taken away. Fun- what once was.......

    Cons

    Low compensation- not at market levels. Extremely poor management. No opportunity to move into other roles or to be trained into better paying roles.

    Advice to Management

    It would take to long to comment!

    I worked at Jawood full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay rates and able to work from home or office depending on the project.

    Cons

    Co-workers not willing to help one another.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the people there are retirees and need a little flexibility. Also be more helpful from the recruiter. There appear to to be a lot favoritism.

    Pros

    I got a good hourly rate in addition to two weeks vacation and paid holidays. Other companies that pay per hour do not provide paid time off. The Account Manager took me out for dinner occasionally and was pleasant to work with. Our health care was Blue Cross/Blue Shield. I was notified of other opportunities including one to allow working from home.

    Cons

    Surprisingly the time sheets were not automated. I scanned my signed timesheet to payroll. The payroll team was not current on reciprocal agreement that would allow Illinois residents to work IN STATE in Michigan. The holiday party was awkward and in an unknown location.

    Advice to Management

    Automate Timekeeping. That's a pain when my manager isn't in the office and there were two timesheets, one for Jawood and one for the client. Overall you offer a good package and I would work here again.

    Pros

    Good consulting company for beginners and mid level experienced professionals. They are good at finding opportunites.

    Cons

    Salaries are not on par.
    There is no career path.
    You get stuck with what you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be based skills and experience. Need to frequently consul with the Consultant and find what they are good at and place them accordingly.
