    I have been working at Jacobs

    Pros

    Good work life balance, flexible working hours, great training available although you have to push for it, prestigious company, some interesting projects, generally friendly and competent middle management, starting salary above average, some offices have a positive atmosphere, many extremely competent and helpful professionals.

    Cons

    Laughable or no pay rises, ridiculous corporate activities, management powerless to punish unprofessional behaviour and laziness, poor feedback from line managers, unsatisfactory IT equipment, HR totally incompetent much like everywhere else, some offices deadly quiet.
    You can easily be pigeon holed by management and subsequently bored TO DEATH.
    There is no structured communication from senior management about the state of the business so redundancies seem to come out of the blue. Beware that your loyalty means nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell us how the business is doing in reality and share feedback from clients with the people who actually did most of the work. Fire people for incompetence rather than hide behind redundancies. Stop tolerating unprofessional behaviour. Simplify the management structure, nobody understands it including the people who are part of it. Introduce bonuses to reward hard workers, not just the managers.
