    Pros

    And there are not a lot of smart guys (or gals) left in the room

    Opportunity to move up quickly inside or outside the room, depending on your port of entry and materials handling in supply chain

    Finance and accounting continue to keep things looking good - the only talent within the room

    There are some very nice people still working here, but not as friendly as it used to be when the company was much smaller

    2 free beers at 4:30 on Fridays - Vending machines accept credit cards

    Cons

    Company culture and hostile work environment

    Nepotism and favoritism

    No work life balance

    No remote or work from home

    No more unlimited sick time

    Mandatory vacation and company shut down

    IT and HR - too many cons to list

    Unpaid overtime and exhaustive travel

    Vending machines do not accept Apple Pay or Google Wallet

    Advice to Management

    Thin out Directors and VPs to make things more efficient

    Outsource HR and IT and let the pros take care of it

    Pros

    Inexperienced senior management will help you in getting promoted faster than any other company in the area.

    Lots of departures will open up new internal opportunities for those who can survive.

    Cons

    Company is now too big for their own good, as the culture of years ago is dissapearing quickly.

    Former maids and nannies to executives are in positions of power and are well connected. Tread lightly when having an opposing view in a meeting.

    Ineffective and crumbling IT department, lots of unpaid overtime fixing errors with outdated systems and under staffed groups.

    Did not make the Tampa Bay's Top 100 Workplaces list for 2015.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat and get rid of the excessive spending in IT. Hold senior leaders accountable like every other company does and stop the scapegoating of junior level staff who were placed into compromising situations based on poor decision making of the senior leaders.

    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!!!
