I worked at Jabil full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

-- 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".

    I worked at Jabil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Continuous training offered. Good pay. Wear jeans everyday.

    Cons

    Works salaried personnel well beyond normal hours without compensation. Too much "good ole boy" mentality. Really do not have the employee's best interest in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking the word of upper management and talk to personnel on every level privately. You may be surprised at what you hear.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
