I have been working at Jacobs full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Plenty of work if you're willing to move around. Offices all over the world. Professional work environment. One of the largest engineering and construction companies in the world. Health benefits are good, lots of flexibility with work hours. Overtime comes up with some regularity and it's paid straight time.

Cons

You need to take care of your own career -- make a lot of friends and connections so you land a spot on the next project.

Advice to Management

None

    I have been working at Jacobs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits for the position that I am in are more than fair compared to most other companies. Tuition assistance, training reimbursement, great healthcare plan, and great staff.

    Cons

    Confusing ideals. Volatile interoffice relations. Issues with certain people overstepping the bounds of their position. Training issues. Management ignorance.

    Advice to Management

    The only complaints that I have are mainly for the USOG specific team. The point of a true consolidated service desk is to use readily available and intelligible directions to solve common issues across the enterprise. This goes double for having separate individual policies. Unless everyone begins to conform on all fronts, it will never be truly consolidated.
