Looking to gain employment with a profitable company with a good working environment.
Area Integrator (Current Employee), Kennedy Space Center, FL – March 3, 2014
Pros: great view of launches!
I work in a team oriented environment here at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) with many other entities that include NASA personnel. We ensure that the day to day operations here at KSC continue to work smoothly and effortlessly, as scheduled, without any delays.
Engineer I (Former Employee), Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD – December 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, MI – November 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 – more... and upon the company's ability to win contracts in a fiscally constrained, bid/re-bid environment. Overall, a good place to work. – less
Firefighter/Paramedic (Former Employee), Arnold AFB. Tennessee – October 18, 2013
Pros: the firefighters, drivers and crew chiefs
Cons: lay offs, management, unfair treatment
Do not work for this company as a Firefighter/Paramedic. The management at ARNOLD AFB. Tullahoma TN. For ATA Starting with the Chief down to the ACO'S who run the shifts are all very limited in their IPC skills. They especially the Chief is prejudice against non retired or ex military personnel. He will stab you in the back like he did the last chief – more... that was there before him.This use to be a place where the localized citizens of Tennessee that have experience in fighting real fires and doing actual EMS calls would be able to go and be employed. You will find allot of ex Air Force retirees in the top positions that have never been to a real fire. This I would take very seriously. The Chief is a nomad implanted from another state that is a legend in his own mind. If you are ever employed ask him how he let a plain burn up on the tarmac at one of his last bases. – less
Enterprise Lead Scheduler (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – October 17, 2013
Jacobs really works to assist their employees in the workplace. Defense Contracts are a fickle business, yet they make every effort to find work for their employees in the event of a loss of a contract.
Jr. System Administrator (Current Employee), Ridgecrest, CA – October 8, 2013
Management is great to work for. Management will take care of you as long as you show that your a hard worker and dedicated. Co-workers are friendly and everyone is willing to help out. Company does not offer much for training.
Leadership and Organizational Alliance Unsatisfactory
Anonomous (Former Employee), GA – October 2, 2013
Pros: lack of communication, no opportunities for advancement in career objectives
Cons: limited healthcare coverage, stock options suck, short-term job based on contracts
My experience with the company was borderline self-satisfying. If you are a woman forget the opportunity for advancement. A company that has vast gender variance and no support for woman to succeed in the roles of leadership. Worked under the leadership of a narcissistic leader who was not open to anyone's idea's but his own. I would suggest if you – more... are seeking an opportunity for advancement that you look at other employers. The door to opportunity is limited to a select few within the men's club (only). Do Not Waste Your Time thinking that all forms of communication will be channeled down to those are viable employed with the employer to guarantee you have a long-term future. Seek long-term career opportunities with other employers is my strong suggestion. – less
