Management (Current Employee), Lisle, IL – April 19, 2013
Pros: promote from within, fair pay, mostly wonderful people to work with
Cons: health insurance is mediocre... not terrible, but not the best
I suppose it's normal to have good and bad reviews at any company because of course every company has good and bad employees! I am so grateful to be employed with a profitable company and working for/with some really great people. I like to work hard and enjoy doing a good job. It's so frustrating when people complain about a good company just because – more... they can't shop on the Internet all day, socialize, and take long breaks. This is a corporate environment and there will always be corporate politics but overall I enjoy working here! If you like being recognized for hard work, moving up in the company, and aren't looking for a free hand out - you will appreciate this company. I've been well taken care of and appreciate the loyalty from Senior Management. – less
parts clerk (Former Employee), Peru IN – April 14, 2013
Pros: benefits, company dinners twice a yr., pay isn't bad
the company is micro managed from every angle. if you have any degree of knowledge if its not their way forget it. a typical day can be routine. my boss was crude in language and would talk all the time. very opininated person who talked about others behind their backs. i actually think this could be a great place to work if you can make it in the social – more... circles. my boss did not have a degree she was good at making the social agenda. Her husband was also a supervisor. her boss was a joke. he was smart at his job except the paperwork which if he didn't do well she would have to cover for him. she also taught me to cover my own actions and always beware. many times they would be afraid of making mistakes. you did not want the plant manager of the company to discover these as he would yell at you and make you feel unworthy of any position. Human resources also had issues. i noticed many times they would make mistakes such as dates on paperwork. i think alot of the problem is many employees are mexicans and the white group feel inferior. another problem is most of the management has been there for many years and this company needs fresh faces. – less
Cons: bad/unhealthy work environment, micromanaged from the moment you walk in.
I am a former employee, pay was good but work environment not something you want to deal with. First of all cubicles are in a cross shaped form and about 4 feet which means you have a view of the entire office and everyone can also see you. Worst part about it is that supervisor or manager is sitting right across from you so even when you take a drink – more... of water she is watching you and when you get up to ask a question related to work she also stops working so she can also hear what you are asking and the response you are getting.......
When you first start working people approach you and give you the impression they are friendly and want to get to know you but be careful because they are trying to get information to go and tell your boss so by the time you get back from lunch your boss already knows what you said good or bad and you start getting dirty looks. My advise if you get hired keep to yourself and don't trust anyone. Keep looking just in case you find out what I wrote in this review is true.
Only one person in the department is approachable and friendly, she is the only reason I made it for an entire month, if it wasn't for this particular nice girl I probably would have resigned my first week. Good luck! – less
Great place to work! This company takes care of their employee's!
Benefits Clerk (Current Employee), Cincinnati, Ohio – December 1, 2011
I have worked at JMFG for going on 5 years now. I'm only 25 and have grown so much since being here. I have gained tons of experience and have made many friendships. If I knew my position wasn't going to be "phased" out, I would retire from the company.
