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.

Most of the management was great as well as the guys. If there was anyone that wasn't keeping up with the pace of they were not a good fit for the quality and pace of the job, they were removed and someone that was more fit for the position was put in place. very experienced and professional place to be

A good company if you are looking into Federal Contracting. My work at Jacobs was in their FNS business. The focus is on U.S. government national security-focused agencies.

Was an great starting job but offered no growth. Felt like you were stuck in the same place unless you were one of managements favorites. Job no longer exists since the outsourced most of their IT work to another country.

I contracted for many companies before, but this contract-to-perm position left me bewildered. The staff was COMFORTABLE with the temporary nature of their "permanent" employment. The staff was a family that had followed each other from company to company and project to project. They were endeared to one another, and taught me how to make family whatever the nature of the employment. Those 4 years turned my need to feel "permanent" upside-down.

Very dependent on manager- inconsistency in messaging. Culture noted as a key factor but not always given the importance in reality which is disappointing.

What I really like about my current job is the variety of projects I get to work on along with learning from other engineers. Also, being able to get out in the plant make the days go by really fast.

Great company to work for. I enjoyed the corporate culture. You can expect annual reviews. The Accounting management that I worked for was one of the best teams I have ever had the pleasure of working for.

The job is too easy. There is no challenge and it seems next to near impossible to move up within the company. They want you to have everything right away such as certification plus experience. How in the world can you get experience if you cant get the job you are trying to get?

long work hours, unreliable systems, high turn over, favoritism, heavy use of temps - basically this place is a nightmare. They're very friendly during the interview but once you're in you see a whole different side of management.

The staff and management were top notch. Open door policy. If you needed help with anything or special tools or requests they helped you out as much as they could. Enjoyed my time there.

Professionally challenging some times due to various management changes throughout tenure. Met some great people and helped to change the safety culture to one of mutual trust.

as above. upper management tries and keeps everyone employed through the thick and lean times. when one project comes to an end, they try very hard to get you onto another

Had a blast my first 8 months here, Loved coming to work, some things in management happened, people got promoted, other's left and the new leadership pretty much killed my desire to keep working there. They also love to preach about "promoting from with-in" but when it comes time, they hire some random off the street 9/10 times.

Jacobs was by far the best company I've worked for as a contractor at WPAFB, OH. Great pay, excellent benefits, flexibility, opportunities for career progression and location changes. I would recommend this company to anyone. It was my pleasure to represent Jacobs as i supported the USAF, United Kingdom, government and other partners.
