    401k is match is 3% and with Vanguard. Health Insurance is alright regarding benefits and monthly costs can be reduced if you are healthy and meet BMI/Cholesterol/BPressure targets, via a wellness credit. For a single healthy male, I pay $70/month.

    Typically the same types of benefits , but this company has a few new ones for me like gym membership and tuition reimbursement

    My main issue with the benefits is the high cost of Health insurance. I would think that a company with more than 60k employees world wide could leverage better insurance rates. My wife and I sought better insurance in the private market and pay less.

    The company covers very little if anything. The employees pay high rates for insurnace. The PTO program is very good. The employees get to sell back the PTO once a year. Stock discount of 5% is low. It should be much higher discount.

    The benefits are not really all that great. They only match 3% and health insurance for a family is going to run you ~$740 a month.

    The best part of the Jacobs benefits package is the salary. My experience with them has been that they tend to pay more in salary, but they have less generous health and savings benefits. The 401k isn't bad, but not spectacular. The health insurance seems like disaster relief more than robust preventative care type medicine.

    The best thing about the benefits is that they're great: vacation, health, vision, dental, 401k, flexible schedule, work remote when necessary.

    Former Employee in Arlington, Virginia

    Health Care was very expensive with few alternatives

    work life balance is highly regarded in the office

    Current Senior Drafting Designer in Houston, Texas

    Very good base salary. No perks. Very poor insurance. 401K match 3%. 6 vacation days. Slightly less than 10 PTO days earned per month. Rigid schedule. No flextime. PTO not available for the first 6 months.
