    Pros

    Open door policy, management very attentive to their teams, but could use some development. Great company events.

    While development options are available the compensation for management and upper level executives does not seem to be on par with other companies. Outdated technology.

    Listen to the employees needs, do not make empty promises.

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

    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.

    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

    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
