    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Senior management was generally good about updating employees in good times and bad times. Generally good engineers with a wealth of knowledge and experience - good to work with.

    Cons

    During the slow times, there was no effort to connect employees with other Jacobs offices. The company logo "people are our greatest assets" was not consistently apparent in terms of career development.

    Advice to Management

    Make a stronger effort to connect NASA Jacobs with other Jacobs entities - beneficial for knowledge and experience exchange, and for developing more well-rounded employees.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company, lots of potential growth opportunities. Overall the people are friendly and the projects are interesting.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company can be "too large." You're hired for a specific task, and as a young engineer it may be challenging to move around.
