    Pros

    Support from senior management, training ongoing and mentoring from immediate managers invaluable. Excellent remuneration package and look after staff very well.

    Cons

    none, thoroughly enjoyed my time working here

    Advice to Management

    Determine reasons for taking on new business and what value the company can add to that business and vice versa. Lack of attention to detail during due diligence and broken relationships have led to local plant closure.

    There isn't a good training plan for anyone who is new. Just a lot of shadowing. There needs to be something more structured in place.

    I have been working at Jabil (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to work and has decent benefits. Lunch is paid time.

    Cons

    Hourly employee are working many long hours and weekends, employees seem to be afraid of the management, benefits (vacations) are being take away and applied against their wish so not much is left when they want it. Employee Handbook benefits to hourly is not being followed, they say rules have changed but cannot produce any written material.

    Advice to Management

    I think corporate should get involved to stop local management from treating hourly employees in such a strict manner and unfair changes to the benefits and forcing people to work long hours including weekends, it should be voluntary

    I worked at Jabil (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best training center you could find. From people skills, systems, processes, reporting, lean, and continuous improvement. You learn how to work in fast pace and high demanding environment. There is no job you cannot do after being here.

    Cons

    No work life Balance. Jabil (VP and CEO's) stop carrying about the people long time ago and just trying to squeeze more profit every year scarifying their biggest asset. A person will be doing the job of 2 or 3 people most of the times. The whole operating/financial system is built to do more with less without a proper justification.

    Advice to Management

    Operating and QMS system is bringing the company down. So many systems, metrics, and meetings leave little time for real engineering. Put your people first and they money will be there.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and good benefits package

    Cons

    Long, slow path for professional growth. Endless bureaucracy. Old company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to attract and retain younger people. Failure to do so will reduce the ability to innovate. Don’t use the H1-B visa system as a way of bringing in cheap talent.
