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

    Pros

    You will meet the best and brightest in the construction industry. There is the best opportunity to learn anything you want to learn from some of the best in the business. The best thing about working at Jacobs is the people. Your advancement opportunities are related directly to what you give to the job.

    Cons

    Jacobs is not getting much work in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to review your HR Department and its processes and procedures. Some of the answers from Regional offices are directly contrary to what you will hear if you asked someone from Pasadena and perhaps are not consistent with current employment law.
