Poor

Jacobs is like any other contracting company that prides themselves on being for the people and team when it’s the complete opposite. They sale you on bogus contracts, poor leadership, and senior leadership sell you pipe dreams, of being the greatest thing since sliced bread. Jacobs is a what have you done for me lately company and if you serve no purpose in their right now goal, they don’t view you for anything future related. They will hold up your unemployment, and will also have lack luster response to emails. Jacobs low ball employees and leadership work from home and have the luxury of being over paid. Be carful Jacobs isn’t for the faint of heart .

Pros

There’s none

Cons

Leadership

Its good interview nice person taken interview

These statistics are all the result of a personalization strategy I have brought to this store. We’re not just selling a product; we’re selling an idea. And, ultimately, we’re selling to human beings who demand a certain level of service for the price they are paying. Exceptional customer service comes from exceptional employee training, which each of our sale associate must pass in order to continue working with us. This is to ensure unwavering standards across the board. Our service needs to be more than just great—it needs to be consistently great.

Amazing organisation with diversified plans for self growth.

Jacobs has high standard of HS culture, safety is paramount and the support from the management is amazing. The university online study centre- with several subjects relating to diverse disciplines and their code of conduct are first to none. I was able to achieve several projects personally during the period worked with the organisation since the yearly individual targets were taken very seriously. I would love to work in the organization if given another chance.

Productive and helpful co-workers

I've learn that you need to strong manager to lead a big project like Qatar Rail to finish on-time. I also learn that managers don't need to shout in order to be followed and respected at Jacobs everybody respects everybody all you have to do is say the truth what happen and look for solutions instead of pointing fingers.
