    I worked at Jacobs (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very dedicated to its employees. Great salary and benefits. Strong focus on safety, both in the workplace and in one's personal life. Outstanding communication with workers. Does not sacrifice the well being of its people to low bid contracts for the sake of winning. Highly ethical, professional, and very astute management and leadership.

    Cons

    Oversight of employees a bit too intense, bordering on intrusive. This is the only thing I can fault them for.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the workers the freedom to think and work more independently. Stop trying to help them every step of the way and encourage the first line supervisors to take care of personnel issues. Middle management had a tendency to micromanage the operations, which caused a lot of angst within the workforce. Delegate without abdicating, but trust that the supervisors are capable of supervising.

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

    Pros

    None. This place does not give you a raise

    Cons

    No pay increase in three half years. Jacobs motto is Beyond Zero. What this really means is below zero in terms of a raise. You are only hired for the contract you are on... Once it's over. Good Bye. No room for advancement. Cheap cheap company.

    Advice to Management

    You all need to be fired. poor leadership.
