    Behind the Times

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They seem to want to do good, but the company is behind the times. It really depends on the team you work with. I'm fortunate they want to do good, but aren't given the right tools or budgets to do the right thing. Cutting corners at times, is not the way to go.

    Cons

    Understaffed, many are wearing way too many hats and work very long hours in the office. Can't leave work unfinished, little work life balance. Many positions have been eliminated even prior to covid, and now we got a lot on our plates. Bring back experienced/seasoned staff to allow other staff to have time for their families. Under paid, not par with market salaries. Not even close.

    TJBC provided great hands on experiences that are invaluable for an intern.

    Pros

    If there were catering leftovers the staff could have some.

    Cons

    Tons of management/leadership shifts with no explanations. People would just "leave to pursue other interests" and be gone. Very disorganized with only a few people doing a ton of work, the rest of staff bored.

    Pros

    Great for someone who enjoys being bored.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything. Upper management is uncommunicative, expects you to know everything off the bat, and they've been caught in several lies. Would not suggest a female work in this position, nor anyone for that matter.
