Reputable company, but relies too heavily on that reputation
Research Supervisor (Current Employee) – Troy, MI – September 13, 2018
Working at JD Power has its pros and cons, like any company. There are days where the pros outweigh the cons, and other days where the opposite is true.
Some of the pros: -Flexible schedule -Ability to work from home -Casual dress code -Large, reputable company -401K match is great
Some of the cons: -Upper management is not trustworthy, in that they often make promises and set goals that they cannot obtain -The company relies too heavily on their reputation to create business opportunities, rather than updating their product offerings to compete with similar organizations -Collaboration is encouraged; however, some groups within the organization are given their way even when it isn't the most sensible business decision
At the end of the day, JD Power isn't a terrible company to work for, nor is it a great company to work for. Depending on your role in the organization, you may find that the pros more often outweigh the cons (with the opposite being true, as well).
Flexible schedule, work remotely, casual dress code, great 401K match, reputable company
Upper management talks out of both sides of their mouths, some groups within the company are favored over others

The performance reviews were not detailed. Usually the performance reviews were apathetic. It was assumed by management that not much was wrong. The training to assume a higher position was non-existent.
