Jacobs Employee Review

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

Need great management & Communication skills

Understand the job before making changes, learn your employees weakness and strengths. The hours are long so learn how to manage your time. Make sure you are well rested to give it your all everyday.

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.
