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

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Quality work staff.

    Cons

    Long hours, lack of leadership, lack of understanding of how hard people work for the company or what their employees do. Employees are tradable commodities, but are hated by Jacobs if an employee becomes a free agent. Company has a chip on their shoulder. Too worried about the bottom line and the not the quaility or results of the work at hand. Continuous and constant minute by minute concerns about budget. Culture of used or be used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure who management was, and there lies the problem. Top heavy with overhead personnel that do not bring much to the cause. Billable employees support the non-billable overhead staff. Upside down management culture. Budget, budget, budget...That's all that matters. I worked 16 hour shifts at remote locations with no help or concern for my welfare. How's the budget, how's the budget, hows the budget. I get it, but I needed a new job. Gone and out of there. Best of luck to you.
