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.

If yoy are looking for a job just for the time being well this is it. You cannot trust anyone and I mean anyone at this job. There is no loyalty towards the workers and management. I've seen guys with over 25 years of service with the company, get fired without any respect given.

The customer was abusive and management only cared about making them happy. Manager was also short fused at times. The job got better after the direct customer was kicked off the team as the new boss didn't like him.

If the leadman wasn't your drinking duddy he made sure not to give you assignments. He would tell others you couldnt do a job when you were more than capable. Worst team I've Ever worked on.

Great company to work for. Opportunities for advancement as you prove yourself ready. I had a strong project controls background and I had the desire to try my hand at project management...Jacobs gave me that opportunity and I have been able to thrive in my new role. Looking for work due to COVID-19 and client's place a freeze on capital spending.

For me a typical day included working on day to day tasks as well as some long term projects. There were, however, times when there were few long term projects to keep me busy.

I was given a chance right out of school. Everyone has been really patient and I learn something new everyday. My supervisor is great. I’m exposed to a wide variety of projects.
Pros
Great place to learn. Fair pay and benefits

Safety is a joke. Compensation is a joke. Poor work environment. The management sucks. They are non reliable. And there is poor conditions to work in. NO JOB SECURITY FROM ONE WEEK TO THE NEXT.

Worked on several projects and always worked with a great team. Worked a 4-10 schedule that I absolutely loved. Having a three day weekend if not on OT is always great! Overall great culture and great people!

I enjoy the varied projects we would do for clients. From new construction to upgrades and repairs. While working at Jacobs I grew from a starting detail engineer to a project manager with the company's guidance
