There's possibilities for improvements within the company that need to be addressed immediately to stop from great engineers and great staff from leaving due to ineffective management.

My work as a Maintenance Site Safety Manager was a great experience. My manager was very informative and helpful, providing clear expectations and support when needed. Pay was aligned with comparable jobs/duties in the region (15+ years ago), as were the work hours and expectations. The culture was good.
Pros
lots of resources
Cons
not a lot of money in the contract for supplies, but that was by the client's design

The most enjoyable part about working for Jacobs was being able to work with great people.
I learned how to process invoices and upload receipts to the management system.

have to take much stress from demanding & unreasonable client and expected to give in to them most of the time even when we are right & they are wrong.

lack of resources and manpower & each RE is overstretched due to the volume of work being assigned as co cannot hire more manpower as each personnel is charged to client which client at most times refuse to pay for additional manpower.


lack of promotion and career progress and jobs are often insecure and not long term due to contract jobs being offered and a lack of project charge code means you will have to go if they cannot find another project for you to go to.
Pros
no work on staurdays
Cons
no promotion, lack of job security due to contract jobs

I've worked for several big IT consulting firms. I have to say I do enjoy working for Jacobs quite a bit. They many, many projects. And if you find your way onto the bench, their recruiting staff will work overtime to help find new project.
Pros
Compensation, flexibiliity, and culture
Cons
only two weeks on bench

Continually harassed at work. Management did nothing about it. Work was not balanced. And expectation were ridiculous. Would be expected to help with others work while drowning in your own with no help. Management couldn’t manage and had no idea of the actual workload. Pay and benefits were awful. No room for advancement. Would not recommend to anyone.

Large company, impersonal, difficult to advance career-wise. Good pay while they have projects, but they lose you as soon as work dries out - no regrets on management part.
Pros
interesting work
Cons
we had to stay late at times after midnight, many worked weekends.

Need more focus on benefits. The new corporate culture preaches caring for employees and then raises benefits costs yearly. Quick to let you know that taking leave if you contracted COVID-19 it would cost you PTO.

This is the worst company I have ever worked for. I will never work for Jacob's again. It is a government contract and they do everything possible to undermine the Government personnel and cause conflicts. They thrive on drama.

This companies compensation package was far better than every other job opportunity I had when I joined them a little over a year ago. They also have a very inclusive work environment in which everyone can feel safe. They really shined during the pandemic when they allowed us to telework to help prevent the spread of the virus and ensure everyone's safety. They even provided free training during this time, and I'm not talking about a 15 minute powerpoint that someone threw together, I'm talking official CCNP level training. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a lifelong career.
Pros
Superior pay and compensation, Inclusive environment, takes care of people, careers that advance human progress
Cons
None

Overall a very nice place to work. Friendly and helpful coworkers. Work can be mundane, but such is the case with any job. Very understanding management, but since it is a huge company, once issues extend beyond your office, it can be very difficult to get them resolved.
Pros
Lunch and learns, nice coworkers, nice environment, good opportunity to learn
Cons
Large company can make you feel inconsequential
