    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job and it pays.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed
    No leadership
    No guidance
    No established and applied company wide practice standards and procedures

    Low pay
    Poor Benefits

    Lack of experienced and unqualified management who make poor decisions which ultimately cost clients money and employees their jobs.

    Some one grossly under bid work and exaggerated progress on an unobtainable schedule, when the milestones couldn't be reached due to lack of information required management refused to address the problem instead choosing to ignore it and allow the problems to mount. Time and money eventually became and issue so they made the decision to cut staff instead of own up to their mistakes. Management kept their jobs, and continue to make the same mistakes while discouraging valued employees and competent staff.

    Advice to Management

    Do the company a favor and find another profession. Projects do not run themselves successfully, neglecting a project leads to failure. Neglecting employees leads to failure. Neglecting the client leads to failure. Success takes work, if your just showing up for a pay check go work in the public sector.
