Being on the Cutting Edge can make you Bleed !

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Saint Petersburg, FL

Pros- Jabil moves very fast in response to customer demands.
- Jabil is present in more than 55+ locations, across the globe.
- Jabil does offer its staff the chance to work on some very cutting edge CE products.
- Jabil can erect a new product manufacturing line faster than almost anyone.

Cons- While Jabil has a fairly young staff overall. The politics and decisions are driven by those with 15+ years in house. So plan your moves wisely.
- To respond fast to customer demands, often leads staff to 60 and 90++ hour work weeks on salary
- The far flung manufacturing plants mandate lots of travel, so give up your Sat and Sundays. You'll be in the airport queue then.
- If you are overseas, and the factory is running on Sat and Sun, then so are you. Working For Free !!
- Jabil can and will close a manufacturing line equally fast. Most line workers are let go the same week.
- If a customer kills a product line, then Jabil sheds their own staff incredibly fast. That includes salaried professionals all the way up through Supvrs, Mgrs, and Dirs. Lateral job placements are a rare and very competitive commodity.

 So living under the guillotine may not match your lifestyle.

Advice to Senior Management-- Need to find a way to make "Work / Life Balance" more than a catch phrase,,,, for ALL !
-- Need to look seriously at Employee Retention programs, and not just making the balance sheet "look good".
