Pros

Lucrative compensation, recognition for higher education, independent work situation for myself with little to no direction given, nor required, from upper management.

Cons

My work situation does tend to isolate me from the rest of the workforce, which I do not necessarily mind, but I am somewhat in the dark when I have to become involved with other workcenters. As with almost any company, I find there are a lot of cliches, and in our work location, nepotism. My exposure to Jacobs Technology has been a double-edged sword. I am grateful to leave the service with such a good paying and interesting position, but have a growing feeling that this is not necessarily how other businesses are. At least not all of them. I look forward to moving on when the right position presents itself.

    Pros

    As long as they leave you alone to do your work at the client site, it is actually not too bad.
    Big company with fingers in almost any sector.

    Cons

    Management does not develop people at all.
    No useful courses to take.
    Uncreative culture with strong focus on safety.
    Lack of career growth opportunities.
