    Pros

    Entrepreneurial environment, many really amazing people, genuinely fun many times and accessible Sr leaders. Can move jobs internally quite easily (as long as you aren’t in Operations or in Asia)

    Cons

    Huge “good ole boys club”, senior leaders who are known bullies and sexual harassers are tolerated, physical offices are depressing, and sg&a staff are rarely ever recognized (they are just viewed as an expense to be minimized)

    Advice to Management

    Get into the modern era in some areas (nicer work offices, eliminate the good ole boys club and the leaders known to be abusive) and get back to your roots in other areas (VPs fly business but everyone else flies coach and not even economy comfort on 16 hour flights which is insane! We use to treat everyone equally) ...

    Pros

    The HR Generalist at the Poughkeepsie location knew more than the HR Manager. Most of us preferred to work with the Generalist. there were constant rumors about the HR Manager's drinking at work. How can anyone feel comfortable talking to that type of manger.

    Cons

    The way management treated employees. No respect, hostile environment during end of quarters. Nasty unit managers that did not acknowledge employees

    Advice to Management

    Get the old generalist back and fire hr manager

    I worked at Jabil full-time

    Pros

    In the beginning, there was an outstanding work environment with caring leadership who promoted the improvements in your skill set and also collaboration necessary for a successful work environment.

    Cons

    Now, all the senior management is interested in is there bonuses and raises at the expense of a healthy work place. Outsource, outsource, outsource, with no real understanding of the impact to the company and their loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Replace senior management with caring servant leadership that actually means what they say. Lying and deceit is no way to promote a healthy work environment

    I worked at Jabil full-time

    Pros

    Higher salaries (with a bonus structure) than most similar businesses in the County.

    Cons

    If you are a male or from Scotland.... excellent growth opportunity; otherwise, extreme "good ole boy" networking and zero opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Take your head out of the sand and look around! Serious discrimination complaint possibilities!

    Pros

    As a contract manufacturer industry, you will have experience with different automotive and industrial manufacturing sectors.
    Jabil provides professional growth within the industry.

    Cons

    Little time given for customer launches, not enough personnel is assassinated for new projects so one person should be doing the work of two...

    Advice to Management

    New BUC and BUMs do not have the correct experience and they are not unctional completely qualified to manage a cross f team, so it could be stressful...... So the advice is: please give them the correct management training/support, specially in Mexico
