    Pros

    Jacobs leadership truely cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Like many many large companies some leaders/managers are better than others. Jacobs does offer outstanding internal training and benefits to improve leadership skill sets. I wish all Jacobs leaders would take advantage of these resources.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Jacobs values are definitely the building blocks of the mission and Jacobs leadership definitely sees a clear vision of the future.

    I worked at Jacobs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    working conditions, people in all disciplines were competent and cooperative, safety in and out office was always emphasized. some flexibility in hours worked was a plus.

    Cons

    Traffic in office area was difficult. lots of work share with overseas offices required to reduce cost per hour to clients means less US workforce. Layoffs cycle common in this line of work.

    I have been working at Jacobs part-time

    Pros

    Great working there. Cool fun people and wholesome environment. Learned a good bit and was with the experience.

    Cons

    The work was repeatative, I got bored a lot. Something's there was not much to do so it was awkward sitting there doing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice I think management did a great job. Maybe just ensure there is adaquate work load for a potted time or perhaps just make a seperate intern charge number.
