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

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 Ineffective and crumbling IT department, lots of unpaid overtime fixing errors with outdated systems and under staffed groups.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

    Good ambient to work, with tools to ease the every day activity, Flexible with time as long as you achieve your goals.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing the actual Hired resources instead of looking outside for someone that don't even know the tools.

    I have been working at Jabil full-time

    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

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

    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.
