    Former Employee - Programmer Analyst in Lowell, AR (US)
    Former Employee - Programmer Analyst in Lowell, AR (US)

    I worked at J.B. Hunt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    *Company is aware of it's culture and works to improve it.
    *Work-life balance is respected.
    *Well defined career progression.
    *Company is stable and healthy.

    Cons

    *IT teams are extremely siloed.
    *Total compensation relies on bonus to be competitive.
    *Project management varies wildly between managers - doesn't seem to be any corporate standards.
    *Upper management is pretty mysterious - not sure what they do.
    *Company culture is actively against being a 'technology company' - views technology more as a cost of doing business than part of the business.
    *Vacation policy is pretty harsh, have to work 7 years before getting the 3rd week off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wanted to clear something up - I would recommend working at Hunt to somebody fresh out of college, but I likely would not recommend it to a more experienced developer. The company seems somewhat aware of the fact that its best selling point to prospective employees in the area is that it isn't Walmart or Tyson, which I mean both positively and negatively.

    I was pretty vaguely aware of what my manager's boss did day to day, but beyond that it was only smoke and mirrors. We heard more from business leadership than IT leadership.

    Pros

    You can work anywhere in the country. They have locations and driving jobs that can satisfy almost anyone.

    Cons

    Very hard to get promoted up from a driver to an office position even though they talk about doing this. Very business driven and not driver driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a cohesive team with your management and drivers. This will lower turnover and strengthen customer company relationships.
