Lead Instrument Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 16, 2018
Wonderful Location. Easy public transportation. Management weak. Hired to bring a project back to schedule. Experience level of permanent personnel below par. Even the department manager was a contractor. High turnover.
My work environment was excellent because management was very accommodating. The jobs were very intense because the schedules were compressed. The most enjoyable part of the work was the interaction with the people I worked with.
Helper/Laborer (Current Employee) – United States – July 14, 2018
Fun Learning experience in the field and office. The hardest part is having a fellow co-worker of yours get hurt on the job. The most enjoyable parts of the job are when your able to trust and depend on your co-workers to complete a job together as a team on time without anyone getting hurt.
Jacobs workflow follows keeping always the org mission in mind.

It was a great pleasure to work with Jacobs where I got opportunities to various diverse small to mid-size design projects of a big client. I enjoyed being a part of cohesive and collaborative working teams.
Civl Superintendent (Former Employee) – Watkins, CO – July 11, 2018
I enjoyed my years wit Jacobs. Their workload diminished a couple of years ago and there was not an available opening for me. I learned a great deal about management responsibilities. I learned to mentor key personnel under my authority. I enjoyed being trusted to do my job as I saw fit and received a great deal of support form those I worked for.
Project Manager/Construction Mgr (Current Employee) – Charles City, IA – July 11, 2018
I have been with Jacobs for 20 years and it has been a very good company to work for. I have learned project management skills and learned to work in various different industries. The pay and benefits and very good, but the worst part is the amount of travelling.
Project Management Intern (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 10, 2018
I spent my summer at Jacobs as a project management intern. Even though the PMs are very busy, I got to learn a lot by shadowing their work and attending internal and external meetings. When workload was low, I accessed the training and development section online and learned 3 new software over the summer.
Flexible worktimes, Helpful employees, Oppurtunity to travel
Project Manager/Senior Transportation Planner (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 5, 2018
Great company but too many mergers and acquisitions during my time and some roles got eliminated as a result. The compensation is very good and management is old school Americana. Do not expect a startup culture.
Stable company, great benefits, very nice work environment
