Senior Project Manager in Herndon, VA
on June 5, 2020
There's possibilities for improvements within the company that need to be addressed immediately to stop from great engineers and great staff from leaving due to ineffective management.

This company is large and therefore you feel like a number most of the time. There is a lot of good intention thrown around but not much follow through.
Software Developer in Houston, TX
on December 2, 2021
I've been employed at Jacobs for three years as a software developer and the projects I've worked on have been pretty interesting and good for career growth. The pay and health insurance isn't the best but I really liked my coworkers and the management. Overall they're a good company to work for.
Senior Bridge Inspector in Atlanta, GA
on December 1, 2021
This is the most diverse company I've ever worked for. They seem to care about having employee input from all levels. All employees have a voice in what changes need to be made in order to keep the company as a leader among other companies in this industry.
Construction Manager in New York, NY
on November 30, 2021
Management should stick to managing and keep out of individual projects. They try to win with the project team. They don’t realize how unhappy the project team is with them and that is why they can not find good people.

How soon could I show up

Shared on September 12, 2019

They asked questions about my experience.

Shared on March 19, 2019

These were not as such questions but they explored about how in-depth and wide spectrum I worked in the Process Safety-HSE Engineering domain, and accomplished/manged such tasks with a team of junior safety engineers, particularly in tight schedule.
