    Former Employee - Project Engineer

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel globally and work on different projects. Better than average pay at the expense of lower than average PTO/Benefits.

    Cons

    Political BS, empty promises. The company values employees only if you happen to get into the right circles. Otherwise you are a piece of meat, expendable at the end of each project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management so focused on P&L that they fail to develop talent. Be reimbursable, get the job done, worry about your career path later. "People are our greatest asset" is a fallacy.
