I have been working at Jacobs full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

*Compatible Pay,
*Experienced people and some managers
*Nice staff and managers
*Once you prove yourself, you can work on your own pace in a relaxed environment

Cons

*Poor or no interdepartmental training for those who are interested in a well rounded experience. Once you get experience in your job, you are treated as a revenue generating robot from the client
*Expensive and lacking benefits

Advice to Management

Did somebody say "Employees are our best asset?"
