H&S Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 November 2016
Really enjoyed interacting with all personnel on site, from the client (Shell) to various other contractors. Every day was a learning experience; challenging at times when issues arose but I was always able to call on my supervisor for guidance and direction.
I would not hesitate to work for Jacobs again should the opportunity arise.

Fun and dynamic place to work.
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 October 2016
Majority of the work is project oriented with tight deadliness and strict budgets. Lots of noon hour learning sessions given on industry concepts (for example: heavy oil production). The concept of relationship based contracts takes away the antagonistic attitudes of clients so they are genuinely fun to work with.
Pros
Good project leadership. Lots of parking at Quarry Park location.
Cons
None come to mind

Manager of Close Out / Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 June 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.
