    Pros

    The pay is excellent and the ability to advance is great. The work is mostly challenging and the opportunity to network with some great professionals really make this company a cut above the rest. The culture of careing and the fact that they treat you as an adult instead of as a peice of meat make this an awesome place to work.

    Cons

    The company is is almost exclusively project driven and most employees are project oriented. This is an opportunity to work on multiple projects however when the project is over you are thrust into the fray and have to find another job. HR is incompitent and useless when it comes to placing employees on new projects. There is no procedures working to place current employees over new hires once a project is done. For the most part this company runs like a good ol boys club therefore they loose alot of talented people so that so and so's brother in law can have a job instead of someone that actually has expierience and Jacobs knowledge. For this reason unless you are an excellent brown nose and dont value job security I wouldnt advocate for Jacobs being a long term Job goal.

    Advice to Management

    Place a procedure in place to keep the talent already employeed once projects are complete. Step on HR's necks and make them do their jobs instead of sitting on their rears doing nothing. and actually follow your culture of "Our employees are our biggest asset" as you preach to the clients and everyone in the company when you know that its not the actuality of the way jacobs runs
