    I worked at Jones|Carter full-time

    Pros

    I met some wonderful people at Jones & Carter, it's beautiful office space.

    Cons

    Watch your back as there tends to be very little communication of expectations from management, and you'll have no idea how the knife got in there. Certain members of management show very little respect for those in administrative roles and certain co-workers might just be waiting to leap on your job when you're not looking.

    Pros

    Close knit teams with a genuine care for each other. The culture is incredible, even as the company plows through all it's growing pains. I believe that's a testimony to it's wonderful leadership. Benefits, PTO, 401K, company events and flexibility are perks worth their weight in gold. Plenty of room to grow.

    Cons

    With any company that grows so quickly, comes patches of growing pains. But I think the JC leaders manage it well, and it's hardly a con.

    Pros

    Top leaders seem to be committed to making sure the company is improving and growing and that things are working well for employees - good transparency. Appreciate that there are women managers across the firm and that they are there because they have earned the spots. There are opportunities to participate in initiatives and activities to get to know people across the firm.

    Cons

    Nothing unusual that isn't already being addressed.
