    "Some of the projects are exciting; however, employee morale is relatively low."

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

    Pros

    There were good opportunities to transfer within the company with the ability to find new work when one project was complete. Some of the projects were very interesting, exposing me to projects that were a little bit out of the norm.

    Cons

    Most time is spent worrying about being billable. I felt like management thought of me as hours, rather than talent- very little time was spent developing my skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time developing the skills of your junior- and even mid- level staff. I think the slogan was something like "People are our greatest asset." I never saw that.


  2. "Nice place to work"

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

    Pros

    if you are in the right clique, salary keeps going up. Laid back most times. Room to learn and acquire skills

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere. You may have a boss that races horses and knows nothing about engineering lead your project

    Advice to Management

    check those old folks without degrees, they drive young engineers crazy
