Positive Outlook

I worked at The Jacobson Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Advancement opportunities available for those that are on the inside. Above average market pay, fun reward trips.The company has done a solid job of staying in their lane and staying solidly focused on one industry. Flexible options are sometimes available for those with company tenure.

Cons

If you're not one of the chosen few, the environment could be challenging. Current employees tell me that all employees are being moved back to the headquarters location, and that virtual opportunities are not as available as they once were.

Advice to Management

Keep driving strategic growth.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Jacobson Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent colleagues. But leadership seems to discourage open communication and feedback.

    Cons

    Privately owned with micro-managing brothers at the helm. No career path. No mentoring. The one person who tried to mentor was fired.

    Advice to Management

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at The Jacobson Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Long term contract
    -Decent starting pay
    -Eventually offer 401K, insurance discount programs

    Cons

    -No pay raises
    -No holiday, sick time or chance for vacation pay
    -No attendance, performance incentives

    Advice to Management

    Yearly pay raises would be nice start not to mention quarterly incentives for perfect attendance and paid holidays would be a good start. When I asked about getting pay raises 2 years in a row, company contact always said it was dependent on contractor regarding this matter even though Jacobson could afford doing it themselves. After all I'm sure my company contact and CEO always get one.
