Suggestions for improvement
- To start, Jet needs to shed some of the overhead. Get rid of the purchasing agents and make PM’s responsible for product procurement. Jet thinks they are saving a ton of money purchasing the way they do it, but the reality is they aren’t buying any better than any other contractor. It just costs the company more time and more money to accomplish it. Also, need to set up manpower requirements over extended time periods to improve crew efficiency and moral. Finally, hire people that know the industry and how to read a contract. Jet tasks people with duties they aren’t qualified to complete or have no idea how to handle. The result is a lot of tasks are completed incorrectly and usually after a very long (and unnecessary) time period.
What I like about the company
The location is acceptable.
What I dislike about the company
Jet Industries qualifies as the most unorganized and inefficient contractor on the west coast. The office is set up where even simply tasks involve numerous people to complete. As a result, a lot of time is required to complete even simple tasks and just one person can create a bottle neck that prevents critical progress. Operations like purchasing, submittals and subcontracts take long time frames to complete.
The management of field crews can only be described as chaos. There is no crew forecasting past one or two days. This affects the efficiency and moral of the craftsmen. The people charged with managing the field crews continually tell middle management one thing only to do something different. It’s a big communication problem that is ingrained in the company and will be hard to correct.
The internal communication failures originate from the upper management where there is little direction for the staff like goals, objectives and even job responsibilities.
These issues create a negative view of the company by clients.
