Not much to say, it is a contract position so other direct hires treat you different.

Good for a start not a Career
Data Collector (Former Employee), Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MDApril 29, 2014
The typical day requires little to no actual work, which for the pay is amazing the problem is that with no responsibility comes no advancement, you will sit there doing almost nothing for years, Great if your going to night school awful if you want something better. But pay is great and there is a lot of overtime.

Great company to work for
Analyst (Current Employee), MIApril 24, 2014
Jacobs is a great place to work. The pay is competitive and the company continues to grow. They really do seem to care about safety, not just pretend to like many companies. The work-life balance is one of the best parts of the job. There is just nowhere for me to advance without being able to relocate. If you can relocate though, there are jobs with Jacobs all over the world.

Has potential to be a good company if . . .
Test Officer (Former Employee), Dugway, UTApril 14, 2014
Pros: a ton of overtime
Cons: "good ol' boy club;" nepotism
I really enjoyed my job at Jacobs as a Test Officer in support of the Special Programs Division. After working *very* hard almost nonstop for 2 years and being awarded with numerous accolades, I was rewarded by being laid off. Just goes to show that Jacobs Dugway Team management doesn't believe in hard work; they believe in nepotism. If you aren't in the "Good Ol' Boy Club" or you are a woman in a position of power, you won't stand a chance.

Very rewarding job
Engineer I (Former Employee), Aberdeen Proving Ground, MDDecember 5, 2013
This job was very rewarding in what you are completing. The job security was pretty bad with the government cut back and furloughs. It seemed like the last year was nothing but worrying if you were going to have a job tomorrow.

A company that cares about its workforce; a good place to work.
Senior Program Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Warren, MINovember 26, 2013
Jacobs management is very personnel oriented, the managers care about the people working for them. There is a very positive, supportive culture that emphasizes work/home life balance. Good compensation and benefits but, since this division is service oriented to the military, job security is highly dependent upon budgetary issues beyond Jacobs' control and upon the company's ability to win contracts in a fiscally constrained, bid/re-bid environment. Overall, a good place to work.
