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

Pros

Great place for the right person. If you are a person of a certain demographic you will do fine here.

Cons

All others need not apply, they will crush you. And if you complain, their lawyers will crush you. Stay away, please….life is too short to put up with such cruelty.

The cons are endless..unjust treatment, unprofessional behavior by managers is tolerated, too many project managers who are just paper pushers and haven't actually run a job in years. Managers and project managers are too far removed from the work product to understand client issues thoroughly yet continue to make inappropriate knee jerk decisions. Abuse of billable hours, clients are not always getting the best value for their dollar. Intelligence and creativity are not rewarded, you might as well keep your head in the sand and keep quiet in order to keep your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick to what you know: Oil, gas and mining. Other industries think Jacobs a fool.

    This is a very "corporate" workplace. Individuality is not appreciated.

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're a man or a woman without a college degree, the pay is great.

    Cons

    Women with college degrees are not paid equally to men unless they're in a position when salaries are known.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the company. No perks isn't going to bring in the younger generation.
