Great place if no one else is willing to hire you
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Canada – 9 October 2018
I've worked at j2 for 2 years, this company is completely focused on profitability. There is zero focus on culture, employees, customers or products. The products are falling apart, j2 is not an innovator, j2 does not strive to build great products, they don't even build good products, they build whatever allows them to check a box on the list and tell the customer that "yes we have that".
There is no career advancement, expect to be paid well below what the median salary would be for your role but don't worry management has been trained to subsidize salaries using bonuses which are no more than $500 a quarter. And if you're lucky you'lll get a $1000 raise at the end of the year. This isn't the case for one team, subsidiary or individual, this is how the entire business works.
Every team is understaffed and overworked while being underpaid. It's a very cancerous environment. Most people last a year, new grads build their experience and move on to companies that are on par with the year 2018.
Good experience working under immense pressure and constant fires
Management, culture, salary, bonuses and just about everything else
