The people at Jacobs take pride in their work, too bad management doesn't.

Pros

The people. They take pride in their work and reallly care about doing it right... the first time. Adminstrative support staff is also great to work with.

Cons

Management says they care about their employees, but prove they don't by their actions. Very little consideration is given to the impact of travel on employees lives.
Management does not comunication well. Their is lack of sharing information that directly concerns a projects outcome..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dissention is not tolerated and openess is not the goal. Management knows best. So, sit down, shut up, do what we say.

    Pros

    Jacobs tries to live up to the credo "People are our greatest asset", they don't always hit the mark.
    Benefits are good, starting salaries are in line with local markets.
    OT is paid to engineers (straight time as mandated by the federal gov't.).

    Cons

    Tied to Government contracts, so raises are poor and job security is very tentative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in "your greatest assets" the return on your investment will be worth the cost.

    Pros

    I truly enjoy the great personal time off. This is beneficial when you have a personal issue to take care of. Decent benefits. Excellent flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to communicate more to all employees to ensure they are aware of what changes might be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The advise I would give to management is to take better care of their employees. People are their greatest assets.
