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.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is above average. The work is very unique and interesting while supporting America's war-fighters. Work a 4/10 schedule with a lot of opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    Nearly everyone has at least a hour long commute. The nepotism and cronyism is at level that defies the bounds of human understanding. If the senior managers are not related then there horses are.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.
