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

Pros

I was a Jacobs employee for 5 years. Great pay, benefits, and company culture.

Cons

I had a hard time working out FMLA and disability issues with our local HR department. I had a hard time getting up-to-date paperwork (forms, info, etc.) and getting in touch with personnel. Later the HR department switched over to a help desk/ticket system in which we had to submit queries through their online portal. If employees tried to contact any of the personnel directly instead of submitting a ticket, supervisors were reprimanded; this effectively stunted HR accessibility.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable co-workers to learn from, well managed and balanced company.
    Good workers can quickly move upwards, with very little micro-management to get in the way.

    Cons

    Only the on again / off again nature of government work (It was all NASA contract work)

    I worked at Jacobs

    Pros

    It is a job and that is all it is.

    Cons

    The management team (family) can not be trusted. The company is being driven into the ground and milked for cash.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a company not a church group or a convenient place to go to when your in the mood.
