    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a job that paid the bills.

    Cons

    No dissemination of information down the ladder and no S.O.P. both adds to the stress and general confusion on even small projects. Large projects were a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Actually hire managers instead of making engineers managers. Or train the engineers to be managers. I went to the 3M Management School back in the 80's and we were taught that the best way to sink a company is to make good employees into untrained managers.

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

    Pros

    I find the work to be technically interesting. I meet interesting people and get to travel to various places that I otherwise would not visit. Company management can be helpful in finding new contracts to work for. Interactions with coworkers / clients have so far been good.

    Cons

    The work is based on the specific contract and there isn't much flexibility around it. The working hours can be long at times. The work environment is determined by our client and may not be as comfortable as a traditional corporate setting. If the client site is closed on a particular day (ie. extreme weather), we have to use our vacation time for that day.
