Pros

Starting pay is good, adequate working conditions, good food in the cafeteria, friendly management staff makes for a good entry level job.

Cons

Union workers lack motivation to accomplish anything outside of their normal duties. lots of red tape which prevents things from working efficiently.

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

    Pros

    Salary is higher than most companies. There is unlimited potential if you are willing to relocate. Company is world-wide. Some offices work 4 10-hour days, others 4.5 days per week. Interesting work.

    Cons

    When an office runs out of work, they tend to loose one of their core values of "People Are Our Greatest Asset." If you are not billable on a project, you better find yourself another job within the organization and be willing to relocate at your own expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of places people within the organization so they can continue to be your "assets." Work share with India and other foreign countries doesn't work--communication problems and poor quality of work. Find a better way to share work with other Jacobs offices within the U.S. Revamp your Human Resources Dept.-they do little to help place people within the organization. Stop hiring temporary employees and making them permanent without allowing those already within the organization an interview.
