I have been working at Jacobs full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Nice People. Fun enviroment. They believe in meeting the client's needs. The projects at Jacobs were very challenging. I always felt part of the team.

Cons

Seems like the Director of the Southern Region for Procurement got the job becuase of his wife's conncections with senior mgmt and not on merit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Jacobs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The supervisory support was suberb! It was a good working environment at the local level.

    Cons

    Company lied about security of job when government program was cancelled! They kept telling us that our job was secure in the face of an impending government program cancellation, but when it occurred, we were laid off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees when you're going to lose a contract!!! Don't keep telling us we're safe when you know better and don't give us advanced notice to start looking for another position.
