    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary; Flexible schedule; the view from my office; and the restaurants in the vicinity.

    Cons

    Inept management; money-driven, not safety driven; and conduct, integrity, and business ethics are questionable. The team/project to which you are hired or assigned can make or break the way in which your role develops.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. If you want me accountable, you better learn the meaning of accountability. Learn effective business management strategies. Learn how to communicate. Stop the "glorification of busy" - everyone is "busy" and that's the lamest excuse to use for not effectively communicating.
