    Pros

    Your job is secure during the government contract period
    The pay is good initially

    Cons

    If the government contract is lost at the end of a contracting period then so are your benefits related to years of service.
    You can quickly top out on the government salary ranges for your job category and once that happens you will not get another raise unless the next government contract raises the salary ranges.
    Extra effort gets little or no meaningful recognition


  2. "Many pluses and minuses"

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

    Pros

    Some of the people are fantastic and if you do a good job you are generally well taken care of.

    Cons

    As an employee it feels as though stock holders are more important than staff
