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

Pros

Decent salary; great experience an a wide variety of projects; always opportunities for learning new things; strong emphasis on safety.

Cons

Most significantly is a lack of job security. It is a company in a very cyclical industry, so a loss of a project could mean that you are on "company convenience leave" at home without pay.
