    I worked at Jacobs full-time

    Pros

    - Fairly positive and supportive work atmosphere
    - Attempts were made to retain employees as best as possible, even in the face of layoffs

    Cons

    - Succumbed to some goofy ideas and tangents from various persons and "gurus"
    - Got carried away for awhile with metrics and bean-counting that was mindlessly pointless
    - Lack of standing up to respectible work ethics. The company started signing up with any kind of work, no matter how questionable, to make a buck (tar sands, nuclear energy, etc.)

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
