Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Indianapolis, IN
Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Indianapolis, IN

I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Jacobs works very hard to treat their employees as assets. They readily provide you with the responsibility to develop your skills

Cons

Jacobs is an extremely large company which can make their procedures hard to work with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be beneficial if Jacobs could provide a system of giving bonuses to employees based on their performance.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Proactive managers.
    Engaged and engaging ethical corporate officers.
    Strong, supportive HR.
    Intriguing work conditions.

    Cons

    Some of their customers can be raw and abrasive.
    Inconsistency in training staff.
    Contracts wax and wane, not a ding on the company but on the employment stability in this line of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. If most companies operated this way, the economy wouldn't be in the wreck it's in. Wow, that sounded close to Rogers Star for president didn't it?

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Compatible Pay,
    *Experienced people and some managers
    *Nice staff and managers
    *Once you prove yourself, you can work on your own pace in a relaxed environment

    Cons

    *Poor or no interdepartmental training for those who are interested in a well rounded experience. Once you get experience in your job, you are treated as a revenue generating robot from the client
    *Expensive and lacking benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Did somebody say "Employees are our best asset?"
