    Some Great Project Opportunities, but Job Security....Not so Secure

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse group of people, projects and clients. If you find the right Project Manager or Supervisor, you can get involved on just about any type of project you may be qualified for.

    Cons

    Constant concern of losing your job, especially if you aren't at least 85% billable. Company is quick to put staff on modified full or modified part time if not continually highly billable....if you're lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up on the 85%+ utilization. You'll have happier employees and more collaboration which will lead to a better company

    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Greenville, SC

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary; great experience an a wide variety of projects; always opportunities for learning new things; strong emphasis on safety.

    Cons

    Most significantly is a lack of job security. It is a company in a very cyclical industry, so a loss of a project could mean that you are on "company convenience leave" at home without pay.
