Featured Review

Current Employee - Systems Software Engineer

I have been working at Jacobs full-time for more than a year

Pros

The benefits that Jacobs offers to their employees is hard to beat. Also, their concern for the employee's safety is unmatched. I have always felt welcome at Jacobs and that is rare for a company as... big as Jacobs.

Cons

Generally the work is contract based so it is not necessarily steady, that being said they make it very easy to transfer to another Jacobs location very easily.

I worked at HDR

Pros

Employee owned and good corporate structure for promotion. Good benefits

Cons

Corporate and impersonal environment missing a family feel
