Job culture
JML is a small business with a family feel. Many of the people that work there have been there for a long time and have grown up with the business from a very early stage. The business needs to change and adapt to the modern retail environment and is generally finding it hard to do as the TV platform that its initial success was built upon declines in importance. The business is generally dependant on just a handful of products every year - as a result, things can swing from 'feast to famine' in a very short space of time and this can make for an uncertain and sometimes uncomfortable environment.

Job culture
I have worked for JML for over a year, and I have been blown away by just how fun and considerate the culture is. I've also never had Flexitime before, so working for a business that's encouraging me to take a moment and hosting regular cafe takeovers with the rest of the building has been something else. It is a long-standing consumer goods business, so you won't find a single person at JML who doesn't believe in the products or the business. But that means anyone who does come on has been on for the long haul, there is rarely any leavers!! If you see an opportunity appear here, I would consider applying for it, let the culture speak for itself when you come in for an interview.
Pros
Flexitime, health insurance, season ticket loan, multiple tea trolley and events, 6% pension, staff discount!
Cons
Sometimes the leadership can take awhile on a decision, but given the multiple spheres we operate in (including TV advertising) it is required!

Physically and mentally hardwork, no bonus no pay rise, 37 and half hr contract but expected to do 45 plus, they expect you to start far from home and finish far.from home, no motivation at all, teams are fed.up with empty promises, loads of money wasted on motivational days when it could have been offered as a bonus, expected to do heavy lifting when it clearly states a two persons lift on boxes, sales struggling due to old and dated products and new products poor quality,, I could go on......morale.is really low but management are oblivious to it.
Pros
None
Cons
No bonus no pay rise empty promises
