Jacobs Employee
in Irvine, CA

"Worked here for 10 years. Management is negative and not supportive. You are never valued as an employee. Do not work here unless you want to be miserable."

Jacobs Employee
in Arlington, VA

"Jacobs is an okay place to start your career, but you can never move up. Especially if you are a woman or minority. Women get paid far less than men for doing the same or higher level job. New local management is much better than the previous, but lack of integrity by some higher ups and management's inability or lack of desire to deal with it has lowered morale. Benefits are poor. No training. Projects are doled out based on favoritism. Safety culture is good but employees know training is for insurance and legal purposes."

Subcontracts Administrator
in Irvine, CA

"Your employer is only as good as your boss. My boss is selfish, and does nothing to motivate her staff to grow and advance in their career. In addition, top management does not make their direct report managers accountable. And don't count on getting your annual review in the contracts department!"

Software Engineer
in Orlando, FL

"Jacobs is strictly a contracting organization. I worked with ASG directly for the DoD. Jacobs provides very little opportunity for a technical career path from my view of the company. Either you don't move up or you become an HR guy. Compared to many organizations in this line of work Jacobs does look out for its employees. Although my last experience with the company wasn't up to past standards, so immediate supervisors do make a big difference in how expendable the employee is viewed."

"I started in November 2014 and am on a 3-6 month contract. I enjoy the work, coworkers, and the plant environment. I just do not like the location as I am from SC and have no intentions of moving to CT. I only wish that Jacobs Vehicle Systems had a plant in SC - that would make me very happy!!!"

Safety Supervisor
in Geismar, LA

"My review of Jacobs is a company that does not respect it's employee, they don't live on what they preach. Integrity, Honor, and Safety. Neither one of these actions they believe in now, no guidance, it's more like "fire the new people and bring in their people." And they won't give you a reason that you're fired, no one answers the phone or email at the Human resources office. This company is terrible I don't recommend anyone to work for this company."
