I have been working at Jacobs full-time (More than 3 years)
The company is inclusive and takes an interest in employee development, which is not true with all E&C firms. In general, I've been happier at Jacobs than I was at the other E&C firms I've worked. Jacobs is better at keeping people (on overhead activities) during periods of low utilization than other firms.
The benefits (in my opinion) are not as good as offered by operating companies and the health insurance options, which seem to change every year, are not so good. Jacobs is self-insured. I suspect they make "discretionary" decisions about what they want to cover based on cost of claims. This suspicion is based on a (significant) claim I submitted that they refused to cover according to policy. Given the cost of healthcare expenses and claims, this is NOT a trivial compensation issue.
Thorough set up of interviewing with full team. Not enough alignment internally on common view of "ideal" candidate. Not everyone equally invested on the need for the role or for an external hire in this case.
