Great Office with Wonderful Staff
Manager of Administrative Support (Former Employee), Lakeland, FLSeptember 24, 2014
The Jacobs Lakeland office offered engineering, procurement, and construction services for most of my career. However, in May 2014 they restructured the office to only offer front-end engineering services, thereby eliminating the procurement/document control department in which I worked.

The hardest part of working at Jacobs was dealing with the fluctuating – more... workloads resulting in frequent layoffs. – less

Enjoyable, fast-paced work environment
Assistant/Messenger (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 19, 2014
On a regular basis I would normally be doing the following: cleaning, filing, running errands, answering phone calls, etc. I learned how to communicate better in a legal aspect. My co - workers are great. For this position, I also had to learn the legal system quick., I need to know what attorneys and judges were asking. The hardest part of the job – more... is being patient with other employees in the courts. Everything is very fast -paced so I have to move quick too. However, this is a great job because I learned my way around downtown Chicago. I have learned to speak up more, and I also learned to be more confident in myself and how to be patient with myself and others. – less

more intersted in liability than its people
Lead tower Tech (Current Employee), Madison, TNAugust 16, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: not interested in families, skilled people and proper rope management
this industry has allot of people who have seriously broken families and life styles, It requires allot of travel and lots of time away from family. Jacobs Seems to only care about the bottom line and liability. There is no desire to better their tower techs with proper rope management training and how to tie correct knots.

Working for Jacobs
Electrician (Former Employee), Kingsport, TNAugust 8, 2014
Pros: once a job was completed, we actually did get free lunches.
A typical day at work is; repairing and installing new equipment. Patience is something I learned along the way. Management is strict, yet the co-workers are friendly and efficient. The hardest part of the job is getting the correct supplies delivered. Of course, the best part of working is finishing a job.
