    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.

    Pros

    Management was reliable along with co-workers. Decent pay, lots of willing help if needed.

    Cons

    The limitatations of suppliers approved that we can purchase from, impossible to get a direct cross part that fits form, fit and function as nobody wanted to go to the client for approval.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better way of teaching new comers in the industry on the required software. Be around to help in extreme cases.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, flex schedule, as challenging as you want it to be.

    Cons

    As mentioned in other reviews, good ol' boy network is in full effect. Upper management is constantly bickering with each other. Decisions are made with out any fact gathering, it is then the responsibility of staff to clean up the messes. Outsourcing continues to grow despite all the issues it has caused. Management does not care about employees at all. Work from home is frowned upon. The issues are especially bad the higher you go in IT.

    Advice to Management

    -Loyalty is earned not demanded. -Listen to your employees, don't dismiss all they have to say out of hand. -Gather requirements BEFORE making sweeping decisions. -Transparency is required, closed doors sew distrust. -The first ones to go are always the talent that can easily find other jobs, and usually the hardest to replace. -This used to be "A great place to work". -Management needs to go and see what other companies are offering talent.
