    I have been working at Jabil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Jabil is very flexibility with your schedule and allows one to have personal growth. There is plenty of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Not of enough standardized processes, always having to recreate the wheel. Makes it hard to sometimes get work done in a reasonable time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Take advice from the employees that do the work. Sometimes we are not setup for success.

    Pros

    Great culture. Company goes the extra mile to take care of their employees. Great benefits and flexible schedules depending on your assigned manager.

    None that I can honestly report. As time goes on im sure some things will rise to the surface like any other company.

    Continue the great work.

    Pros

    Casual work clothing; good benefits.

    Cons

    The upper level management does not have a handle on the masses of employees working for them. Very little interaction between the departments. Company has grown too big too fast. Out of touch with employees. Too many chiefs, and indians don't have opportunity to advance. Management is treated fantastically, general employees ~ not so much.

    Advice to Management

    More meet and greets where feedback without repercussions would be available.

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly people
    Open door policy
    Helpful managers
    Casual dress code policy everyday

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Better training system for new hires or people transitioning over to new job

    I worked at Jabil full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers and customers. Florida based, so PPO only everywhere else. Top management is reasonable.

    Cons

    Bad managers. Lies directly to customers, don't allot originally committed resources to projects, Mgr repeats all projects should take 2wks like his (turns out his workers, not him), overworks employees, fudges work numbers (not allowed to write more than 48 hrs per week, later adjusted to 60 and not weekend work), commits to customers without arranging with engineers, less than 18 hour notice of travel, no care for holidays or family occasions, flip-flops on requests. Couldn't give less than one star for "Work/Life Balance".

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider middle management. Better checks and balances.

    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

    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.
