    Terrific company to work for

    Applications Administrator (Current Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsThey have a terrific benefits and 401k package. The employees are great to work with. While it is a huge corporation, Jabil still has that small business feel with the camaraderie.

    ConsThere can be a decent amount of overload that can lead to unnecessary stress. Re-org's are frequent, leading to some confusion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to the "indians", after all "cheifs", they do the brunt of the work and make you look good.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worked for Jabil for 16 years

    SCDM (Former Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsLearned a lot, travel around the globe. Good pay. Very very relax and casual work environment. Job opportunities in cross functional groups. Will promote within.

    ConsShrinking benefits, since ~ 2000 changed from a family oriented atmosphere to a monster where you are now just a number. Unless you are among the ole boys group, eventually you will get let go if

    Advice to Senior Managementyour lay off process sucks tremendously...no compassion just get out you do not work here any longer. Kind of pathetic approach after someone gives you 15 years of loyal service.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lacks Professionalism

    Associate (Former Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsA great part-time job if they offered part-time! Self-starters would flourish in this organization!

    ConsHuman Resource Manager lacks professionalism, she creates a hostile work environment! Absolutely no people skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership training for new and current management is an absolute must!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hell on Earth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI guess there must be one. But I can't think of one.

    ConsMy department was run by fear, bullying and intimidation. Every once in a while you would look around and realize that someone was gone.....People were terminated quickly and with no warning. And you never knew who was going to be next. Thank God I got out of there before I was one of those people who just "disappeared" one day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInitiate an investigation into the hostile workplace you allow to continue to operate before someone starts a class action suit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
