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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. If you find your niche, do your job, and keep your head down, you have some level of job security.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to remain 100% billable at all levels. Some employees have no control over their project assignments or lack thereof. Also, extreme favoritism is shown. There are employees that should have been laid off years ago! Advancement/raises depend on who you know, not your quality of work. Corporate is spending a ton of money moving everyone into an open floor plan environment with cheap looking furnishings reminiscent of a call center. Very little room for growth and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate and clean house at the management levels. Very heavy there! Quit doing people metrix surveys. It's the same questions each time. You do a whole dog and pony show to cover the results with us, then nothing changes.

    If you work hard, collaborate and network within the company, doors will open up for you.
