    Pros

    there are good opportunities if you do not mind working alot. Pretty OK benefits. Many good people. Flexible start time in some position, that is good.

    Cons

    Behind the times. No telecommute available (unless your a consultant). no fair work life balance. keep pushing employees that perform good and do not say no

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. When you make people managers choose ones that care about people and do not compare between employees to determine different work life balance or what is important to one vs another in their lifes

  3. Good work Culture, not so good executing it

    Hard to get a promotion unless you change Company and then return.

    Pros

    Employee Empowerment & Accountability is the foundation of this company. Jabil invests heavily in the people, but expect the people to hold up their end of the bargain. Management has humility and really meets people where they live.

    Cons

    Not many. Velocity of the business can sometimes overwhelm newcomers. While rewarding, the demands of the business can occasionally drive work that conflicts with personal life.

    Pros

    They pay well, but you will work for every penny. They promote from within.

    Cons

    Constant hourly staff layoffs and rehire after months away. People wait to get rehired.

    Advice to Management

    Work as hard as your staff and you will gain their loyalty

    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 Management

    Listen to employees when they reach out to you!!!

    Pros

    Boss is trustworthy and I work without a lot of supervision. Many of the people I work with are helpful, when I have a question or need anything.

    Cons

    Mildly disorganized, so its not a company to work for if you're not self disciplined.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any encounters with upper management since the company is so large.

    Pros

    Learned new equipment very high paced environment. Always something new to to figure out with equipment.

    Cons

    They wanted you there every week end even if made plans in advance. There was a saying there if you made plans be ready to cancel at last minute notice.

    Advice to Management

    More to life than work everyday
