    Pluspunten

    Company has a strong business plan and is growing at an incredible rate. Company continues to reinvest in the team and is adding process and hierarchy to keep up with the growth. The people are awesome, collaborative and friendly. Lots of opportunity for people who want it

    Minpunten

    Hyper-growth means rapid change. We have experimented with a few different development processes. We have had some turnover (various reasons) but I think it is settling down as the people who want to work in a startup environment move on and we transition into a more mid-sized company.

    Advies aan management

    Keep moving forward. Keep the vision going. This is going to be a crazy ride so just remain steady and push through. Good opportunity to make Jama something amazing in Portland.

    Pluspunten

    People here are smart, caring and authentic. High level of transparency and overall sense of responsibility to give to the employees as well as to the community. Employees are given the opportunity to learn and advance their careers. Employees have a voice.

    Minpunten

    It would be nice to have a better parking arrangements and more generous parking reimbursements.

    Advies aan management

    Continue to make the employees feel appreciated and keep us up to date on the good, the bad and the ugly. It fosters the transparent environment that all of us really appreciate. Add more opportunities for flex hours and remote days to be competitive in the hot Portland Tech community.

    Thank you very much for your review - I'm glad that you are experiencing many of our core values in action. I agree with your comment on parking, it is unfortunate that we don't have a garage in our building. We used to have a transportation benefit in the past that we removed in ...

    Pluspunten

    - Best company I ever worked for (may be the best company I ever work for) - Great people. Smart, dedicated Engineering team - Taking relatively good care of employees (benefits, etc.) - Great downtown office location

    Minpunten

    - Lost its startup appeal; processes are now often elevated above results. This is probably the right thing for the clientele and the direction, it may just not be right for everyone (it wasn't for me, anymore, but if you come from a larger company, you will feel the opposite) - Lack of technical leadership, priorities are set by Sales and Marketing instead, glossing over the technical basics - Collaborative, consensus...

    Pluspunten

    For those that are committed to showing up, working hard, driving results, and remaining a little patient, Jama provides some great opportunities for career advancement. I've seen many people (myself included) come into the business at sort of an entry-level and move into more pivotal roles over the course of several years. Benefits are great. Work-life balance, inclusion, and community involvement are well-supported....

    Make sure you are up for the challenge that comes along with working in a rapid growth environment. Things are constantly evolving, so you should have the ability to adapt and be committed for the long-haul.

    Continue getting in front of our customers and socializing ideas. They are our best source for input & feedback on the product strategy.

    Fun company Great benefits and office Smart colleagues Transparent management Especially for customer-facing roles, this is a great place to work to expose yourself to a variety of industries like avionics, medical devices, complex system development. You'll gain lots of experience to grow your career internally or after your time at Jama Software

    Minpunten

    Not a con - just a note to echo another review. Company is very focused on growing revenue and being growth stage company so you'll want to be ok with fast pace and ok with change/taking initiative

    Advies aan management

    Continue focus on transparency of company financial health and situation. DOn't try and "boil the ocean" on product strategy - often customers just want to see incremental improvements to buy in further.

    Thank you for your review. It's unfortunate to hear about your perceived disconnect from the product team - I'm not sure if it has been well communicated cross-functionally but they do intentionally invest in a lot of things to stay closely engaged with our customers - many calls, ...

    Ik heb gewerkt bij Jama Software voor minder dan een jaar

    Pluspunten

    - great work/life balance - no pressure to work long hours. - a minority of the employees are really engaged and kind and working to make life at work better. That minority rules! - software has some innovative features, even if it struggles in quality sometimes.

    Minpunten

    - a product that is not well-loved by the company or its customers (let's be honest: nothing in this space is "loved by customers"; it's just less crappy than its competitors) - politics between departments can be pretty crappy; there is a definite "us vs them" mentality at play. - the good parts of company culture are entirely bottom-up: game nights, social bike rides etc are organized by employees, not management....

    Treat your employees better. There are plenty of other tech companies in town who do. Transparency isn't saying "rah rah the future is exciting, there will be no changes!" and then laying off 10 people the next week.

    Kind, helpful culture, innovative and exciting, excellent product with innovative and motivated product development team, helpful management and peer groups, genuinely super people

    If you are used to a large enterprise, moving to a smaller company has it's challenges - many new processes in flight which is natural, less infrastructure support, smaller departments like marketing, sales is largely green field hunting depending on region and vertical
