    I have been working at Jabil (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros to working at Jabil. It has a good culture and generally good to work with people. There are opportunities for advancement and you need to step forward to get them. The work life balance is pretty good depending on who you work for.

    Cons

    It is a large company, so it can be hard to get a handle on what is going on. The plan is not always easy to discern. Like all companies, buzzwords are often chased after instead of realistic solutions. Some managers have no real understanding of the work being done below them. They don't have IT experience and come from areas like supply chain or operations.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be promoting those who have ideas and really solve issues.

    I have been working at Jabil full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial atmosphere. Lots of internal jobs to change to if you get bored. Very blue collar and casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very much a good old boys club. Female talent is rarely singled out and developed. Job advancement is still heavily tied to networking while visiting brothels in Asia.

    Advice to Management

    Improve company communication and for heavens sake can we get a decent office to work in? It's depressing just walking around inside.

    I worked at Jabil (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved building heart circuit boards.

    Cons

    The only down side to this job was I was working thru a temp agency. I wish that they Had more positions available while I was there but only 1 person got hired thru the company which was unfair it was 10 on my temp agency team.

    Advice to Management

    I believe everyone should have had a chance to work there if not all have we came in as early as 4 a.m. I really enjoyed working at Jabil it taught me a lot and I loved saving lifes.

    I have been working at Jabil (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent health benefits. OK employee stock purchase plan. Nice people to work with. If you're an officer you get paid, other than that you are a slave to your manager.

    Cons

    Working at the corp hq is so depressing. Animals in pet shelters have better accomodations. I look forward to leaving everyday. Jabil is a human trafficker of cheap labor in China, Europe, South America and Mexico. No career path, unless you can play favors for your boss. Lots of directors and VPs must have a lot of dirt on each other to be in the positions they are in --- wouldn't be in those positions at any other company.

    Advice to Management

    Quit lying to the employees, shareholders and public - clean up your business practices and be a legitimate business. Take the company private as the stock is garbage and has gone nowhere. Sell out to Flextronics where they treat people better.

    Keep it up.
