    They have the worst Health Insurance it has gone up approximately 300% in two years is you are on their PPO. They have passed down all cost to the employees so that they will go on the high deductible which is making people not go to the doctor or stay on their medication.

    Poor package overall. Not well communicated either.

    Current Engineer in Hanscom AFB, Massachusetts

    Medical benefits: They have gone from bad to worse. Besides a deductible on a PPO that rivals a high-deductible plan, they are now increasing premiums for 2015 by 135% (that's not a typo, it's more than doubling!).
    Sick time: There isn't any. Instead, employees are expected to take vacation time (cleverly called, "Paid Time Off") when they're sick. As a consequence, workers come in when really sick, causing others to get sick.
    Professional development: Jacobs will not pay for any training. Since Jacobs provides engineering services to other companies and the Government, the company "sells" the employees as being completely qualified. So if you need to further your training, you're out of luck, as Jacobs won't pay for it (nor give you time off to take the training).
