IT Specialist (Lead) (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 22, 2017
Jacobs is a good place to grow. Jacobs provides a place where you can learn and grow into your role. There are a lack of options for upward mobility so one would have to create a niche for oneself and use that to their advantage.
Jacobs has a long history of promoting friends and family members over more qualified individuals. This does more to encourage people to develop personal relationships more than professional relationships.
Designer VI / Smartplant Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – September 18, 2017
I have been with Jacobs over 6 years and is probably the friendliest office I have been in. I was always challenged with completing tasks that were somewhat out of the ordinary. My Manager was excellent. The hardest part of the job was integrating new software into our workflow.
Only had job for 30 days as a contractor for Jacobs
Health, Safety & Environmental Supervisor (Former Employee) – Monaca, PA – September 16, 2017
Interesting work but not well run. Lots of activity going on all the time. It was fast paced. I was only hired on as a temporary worker. Was responsible for the safety of the numerous contractors assigned to the site.

Always something to do in the work place. Good communication with the fellows on the Job. Always Safety First. Jacobs is one of the better Jobs I've had in Construction. Good group of people to work with. I'm looking forward working for them again. Hope that they will grow and have more jobs.
Senior Electrical Designer for Jacobs at Motiva (Former Employee) – Port Arthur, TX – September 12, 2017
Worked inside of refinery where work was fast past paced and fun. Worked with a group of smart professional people. We could have got more contracts if we had proper staffing for electrical and control systems at plant site.
Work was interesting and Jacobs had good pay and benefits.
Worked in refinery away from mail office with not enough staff to do projects the right way.

Even though job standards overall and throughout the industry seem to be on the decline, Jacobs allows individual freedom in applying job skills and expertise in order to complete a task professionally.

Engineering Technician II (Former Employee) – Ft. Bliss, TX – September 6, 2017
Co-workers are great from all parts of the US. If your in need of quick easy money and don't mind being outdoors in the middle of the desert then this job is right for you. Management is kind of weird with a lot of favoritism.
Good pay, good people to work with.
No set lunch breaks, no benefits, very short and micro manage.
