    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They care when you are ill and facing surgery. They will try their best to help with low PTO and will send out emails asking for donations. They really seem to care about their employees and the families.

    Cons

    Try not to get on the wrong side of some of the senior management as it will put you behind the eight ball and as soon as they can they will get ride of you for no ligament reason.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your management please and try to keep from hiring individuals into supervisor/management positions that are related in any way.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is above average. The work is very unique and interesting while supporting America's war-fighters. Work a 4/10 schedule with a lot of opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    Nearly everyone has at least a hour long commute. The nepotism and cronyism is at level that defies the bounds of human understanding. If the senior managers are not related then there horses are.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.

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

    Pros

    Lucrative compensation, recognition for higher education, independent work situation for myself with little to no direction given, nor required, from upper management.

    Cons

    My work situation does tend to isolate me from the rest of the workforce, which I do not necessarily mind, but I am somewhat in the dark when I have to become involved with other workcenters. As with almost any company, I find there are a lot of cliches, and in our work location, nepotism. My exposure to Jacobs Technology has been a double-edged sword. I am grateful to leave the service with such a good paying and interesting position, but have a growing feeling that this is not necessarily how other businesses are. At least not all of them. I look forward to moving on when the right position presents itself.
