Review on JMA
Statistical Analyst (Current Employee) –  Rosslyn, VAMarch 7, 2016
Good company to work for with good company perks. Management is ok at responding to whatever you may need and a typical day results into working hard and always doing your best. The co-workers were good to be around.

Assembly (Current Employee) –  Liverpool, NYOctober 25, 2014
JMA is a wireless communication products manufacturer, based in Liverpool, NY. They specialize in building and selling connectors, cables, and antenna panels, for cell towers and other wireless communication.

If you are walking in the door with minimal experience you will most likely be directed to a staffing agency and, if employed, be a temp worker for a minimum of 3 months. Once hired on permanently (in some cases taking up to 1 year,) you may expect to see a roughly 10% raise, vacation pay based on how long you were a temp, immediate eligibility for insurance and 401k.

The production floor is pretty clean, well lighted... no feeling like working in a dungeon. There is no A/C on the floor, and people will fight over the available fans on hot days. It seems to be heated.

There is a nice big lunch room, however the vending setup is a bit funky. Many microwaves, toaster, and fridge available.

Most people are friendly. There are a LOT of immigrant, and younger workers. This does create some issues with training people. You either have a communication barrier to try to bridge, or you get a "wise" kid who won't pay attention.

Line-leads, and team-leads, are pretty much useless workers... they are somehow randomly picked. Some hang around and milk overtime. You can't get them to help out when things are behind, yet you get complained to if things are going slower than they should be. Others just don't care what goes on, seem to disappear when needed.

Management/"higher ups" seem pretty good, however some of them are a bit clueless on some matters.

Engineers come up with solutions
  more... that usually don't help problems until the 23rd try. You can explain something til your blue in the face, but they still come up with what they think is best...which never works, and you wind up giving up on whatever the issue is.

The owner makes his rounds every now and then; seems like a good guy, though he's a stickler for rules...Don't smoke anywhere except in your car, and wear your company provided attire!

Pay rate is average. Overtime is varying. There are many "opportunities" for advancement... if you ever hear back on any bids/applications to them.

Overall, its a better place than most, nowadays. Could use a bit more direction in some areas though.

shipping (Current Employee) –  Liverpool, New YorkAugust 31, 2014
Its a great company to work for and is expanding! Has doubled in size since I have been there and its been less than a year. I get tons of over time. They benefits are the best I have ever seen at a job. There is advancement as long as your willing to work hard. Not sure about the review out of MI because we don't have a branch there.
Pros
benefits, pay, overtime
Cons
can be expected to work sat and sun on last minute notice
