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

Management is disconnected. They continue to acquire companies and are constantly in a state of transition. Never feels like a place to hang your hat.

I believe when an initiative is instituted, it should not be just window dressing. It must be enforced. I followed the process of filling a complaint sadly not response came back from the portal enacted for these sort of activities.

On the flip side, I have had a much better experience from my none Caucasian supervisors, when the prior supervisors moved to other positions.

Very good pay. Extremely poor US based short term profit based culture, with little career progression or job security. 1970s style of management, blame culture.

It's a typical large company that says all the right things and then lays you off with no notice. Saw no effort from anyone within the company at a higher level than the local office.

My experience so far has been very positive. The work is rewarding and the company goes above and beyond in welcoming diversity in the workplace. We have an excellent and talented team of professionals who care about providing the best service possible to our clients. The leadership is generally good, but at times, personalities tend to clash. Overall, I think it's a great place to work with a generally positive working environment.

It was a good place to work. When you are dealing with oil and gas, it is good when the oil prices are high. When the oil prices are low, they lay people off quickly.

Company is corporate driven. Group I work with is a small division usually overlooked by the bigger groups. Not much room for advancement as hiring in our group is from outside or sub-consultants. People are great. Management is non-existent until they need something. Management structure can be complicated based on the projects assigned as your direct up-line may not be your project manager. Balancing who is in charge at any given time can be tough.

Jacobs is a well established leader in its field. Management is kind and considerate of employees. Consulting work is sometimes ambiguous and frustrating. Uncertainties are abundant.

No support from management to provide adequate qualified resources for projects. No support from management to accurately document cost and schedule impact due to scope changes.
