    Former Employee - Engineer in Denver, CO

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

    Pros

    There is opportunity to travel, alot.

    Cons

    Liars, harassment, discrimination, mobbing. if you're not white and male at 50+ you will not get anywhere within this company no matter how much effort you expend. Management doesn't understand anything even slightly outside of their own white male world view. If you are different than the cultural 'norm' you are a threat, treated poorly and subjected to a toxic environment.

    Wage discrimination between male and female engineers, guess which direction. No regard for safety, they will send a young female to a foreign country without providing a cell phone or vehicle, too cheap or don't care, unsure which. Bullying, blocking work and communications that are required to do your job. Laptop surveillance. Unprofessional treatment. Even their lawyers are unprofessional. It's too bad they throw their good loyal people away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for both sides of the story next time

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time

    Pros

    Company is continuously looking to enter new markets and/or develop presence in existing markets. Outlook and strategy is good and lends to sustainability.

    Cons

    Large, growing company with aging workforce. Age/duration at Company appears to carry more weight than performance/productivity. Training & Development programs are weak to non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Non-productive employees/poor performers stay too long. Mediocrity in the employee ranks is tolerated.
