    I worked at Jabil full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional workers. The HR staff there was top notch and caring. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Because of current POTUS, and his way of thinking: a slowdown took place at Jabil and throught the semiconductor industry. This caused a reduction in workforce and we were caught up in that.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are doing right thing. It cannot be helped that someone like the current POTUS has no clue about the current state of the manufacturing industry.

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

    Pros

    Jabil is a very fast-paced, high expectations company. So if you're not a person who is easily overwhelmed, you'll do great. Although the company has 200k employees worldwide, it still has a small business feel within the corporate environment. The work environment is flexible, the work itself and what the company does is incredibly interesting, and the people are stellar. You also get about two weeks off at the end of December, when the company shuts down.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't much to look at. Although the company shuts down the last two weeks of December, most of it is deducted from your PTO. Along those lines, you only get 15 days of PTO (after first year) and 1 floating holiday. Health insurance is OK.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the benefit policies more to stand out as an employer in the region and worldwide. For an international company, the PTO policy isn't impressive.

    I worked at Jabil full-time

    Pros

    Big company big money i has little salary though

    Cons

    in Jabil’s commercial many of their employees say they treat everyone equal but is this true? Many could disagree some employees have said “Not very many benefits or bonuses” and “the project cooperation model is complicated”. “Promotion and bonus system are worst”. The worst thing an employee said was “Not recommended if you are looking for a stable income, might get laid off any moment due to most of the facility empty and struggling to stay afloat”.

    Advice to Management

    STOP
