Manager of Close Out / Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – June 23, 2016
Still very much a boys club.. A day at work is very stressful knowing if you are going to get laid off or not. Hardest part of the day was working with people that should not be there because being there is when senior management wont deal with HR issues properly.

Instrumentation Designer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – May 18, 2016
A typical day at work is just like any ordinary desk work where you are just on your computer throughout the day. What I learned from this company is their culture of caring for the business, your goals and self improvement, and the well being of their employees. Management is average and can be improve better. Co-workers or colleagues are probably the best thing about this company. Very friendly and family oriented environment. Hardest part of the job probably be sometimes trying to meet deadlines with such tight schedules. Most enjoyable part of the job is probably the people you work with and the somewhat relaxed nature of the work depending on which position in the company you're in.
Corporate Challenge, Coffee breaks, Friendly work environment, room for career advancement

Jacobs is an Engineering company that grows through acquisition; this allows them to leverage their many different lines of business and their many employees (65,000+). Since they are so diverse they do sometimes struggle to maintain consistent work practises.
