    Pros

    There is opportunity to grow and succeed. Work life balance was embraced, and when something personal came up, no questions asked...take care of you and your family!

    Cons

    There was little to no training, or ramp to your position. Countless requests of my manager to have weekly meetings to see how I was doing were ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Multibillion company where you can get lots of experience

    Cons

    Business units Directors (within Jabil) are always looking for the way to take the accounts overseas to keep a little more bonuses cash flowing in their pockets, few sites are already close in states and more business are moving into Mexico - if you apply and work for a medium or large account for this company you might end up jobless and the account leaving to a Mexican plant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more humble

    Pros

    Love working with really smart people and in an environment where you are given the freedom to try new things and introduce new ideas

    Cons

    Leadership sometimes make decisions and move to action too quickly without thinking about longer term consequences

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your travel policy.. Every employee's health and well being is important.. Not just your Officers.. Expecting non-officer employees to fly 27 hours in coach in a middle seat is terrible

    Pros

    Company culture is prime for self-starters, less focused on hierarchy and strict regimen. Work is fast paced and highly dynamic primarily focused on specific projects.

    Cons

    If you're someone who needs punch in / punch out 9-5 this May not be for you. While portions of the company may exist this way, the core is focused on individuals driving results by their own volition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best advice is to balance in site and direction with freedom to explore and learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to ask your employee how they are doing, don't just think they are okay.
