    I have been working at Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    JMT offers opportunity, fair pay and challenging work and it reflects in the lack of turnover. Over 25% of the company has worked here for 10+ years. That says something! I feel thankful having had the opportunity to work here for a handful of years, within a work environment that fosters teamwork. The pay is fair, the workload is also fair. Opportunity for growth is there if you want it!
    The benefits are great! Oh and JMT is an ESOP! I look forward to working here for a long time.

    Cons

    A little old school mentality here and there that could be brought up to speed in some areas but others no real complaints here.

    I have been working at Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid people. Not a cut-throat/back stab type of firm.

    Cons

    Promotions seem to be more about how long you've worked vs. how much value you bring to the team.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do a better job recognizing people that bring more value.

    I have been working at Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    TO, Insurance, ESOP, and tuition reimbursement are very solid for a company of this size.

    The company frowns upon treating employees as disposable giving those who've made mistakes a second chance.

    They really do want to provide a quality deliverable for their clients and the company is full of smart hardworking people.

    Company is run by people who genuinely want the company to do well.

    Cons

    There's been a shift in direction from wanting to be the best firm around, to seeing how many companies they can purchase and operate on a shoestring budget. Expansion is being pushed way to hard which causes a poor quality product overall.

    They're starting to turn the corner from a Employee first firm to a "We need returns on our employee stocks" company driven by those who own the most stock.

    Attempting to cut too many cost's and not investing in technology since there's more hours to be billed doing things to old/slow way which ultimately jeopardizes long term relationships and contracts since it gives competitors an opportunity to undercut them on the next contract renewal.

    Seniority, handwork and company loyalty don't really mean anything anymore. If they need an employee they will gladly overpay someone with less experience than most on the team and promote them to fill a desk.

    Raises while touted as being "above average" aren't really competitive since most of the company have highly technical in demand jobs.

    To reliant on younger engineers to pick up the slack when it comes to keeping up with technology.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and invest more existing offices and employees before purchasing more companies. Trying to integrate all these companies into our way of doing things is straining the departments in the home office.

    Realize that most of the companies profits are from young employees that bill at the same rate as the more tenured ones and since they're the ones usually picking up the slack treat them accordingly, not like children.

    Don't become complacent and chase the every short term dollar,
    Technology is moving very quickly and investing in it is the key to long term success. Sometimes this requires expensive purchases and training, but it will be worth it when the contracts come up for renewal and our completion has less capabilities then us because it wont be pretty if it's the other way around.

    Actually promote your promising, loyal young employees instead of forcing them to leave for a decent raise or promotion. I understand you need to lure skilled workers during times of need, but bypassing those who have put in years of service and are more capable is a serious morale killer.

    Pros

    Coffee Machine and Microwave

    Cons

    -Pay
    -Raises
    - Some Managers
    - They will try to find the weakest guy/girl to blame (usually it's the one that they just hired )

    Advice to Management

    - value people
    - respect the group
    - it doesn't make sense to have 4 bosses out of 5 employees in one group
