    Current Employee - Senior PM in Oakland, CA

    I have been working at Jacobs


    Pay is above average for management, offices are well decorated and have modern equipment, Benefits are comparable with other firms, general staff are talented and well trained, break room is well stocked with coffee, teas and a vending machine. Safety is constantly talked about.


    Benefits cost employees 20% more than at other firms for the same level of coverage. Difficult to move from one region to another even if you are willing to relocate, office managers tend to be very territorial and self-serving. Recently lay-offs (9 people in the last 30 days) have been frequent and complete blindsides to the affected employees. Many managers very few leaders in this company.
    The recent move to low-walled cubicals is un-nerving and privacy is non-existent; any talking above a whisper is audible throughout the surrounding area. Even senior management have no offices in the new layout. Productivity is going down the tubes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review internal policies regarding layoffs and transfers. Morale has dropped to morose levels due to the way layoffs have been handled. If your people are your greatest assets then treat them like it don't just use it as a catch phrase in the monthly newsletter and staff meetings. The upheaval in corporate leadership has most people on edge because you don't know who your next manager is going to be. Senior management needs to be more open with information sharing with staff at all levels. Be proactive in your communications.
