Jacobs tries to have a culture of caring, but are bound by a lot of Government red tape, since they are a Government Contractor.
Flexible work schedules within the confines of the contract are often permitted and the pay keeps up with, if not exceeds, the local going rate.
Being that Jacobs is a Government contractor, all employees are at risk of being laid off whenever the contract changes hands. Jacobs is also bound by the rules of the contract (for example, some contracts prohibit telework, etc.)
