Document Controller / Project Admin (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LA – March 13, 2014
Pros: formed great relationships, learned a lot and matured professionally
Cons: when work is slow jobs go away
Jacobs was a great company to work for. When I was a Field Specialist, better know as Building Services Coordinator, my job was very rewarding working with all Employees, contractors and vendors of Jacobs. As a Project Admin the job was just as rewarding but I was moved to a Document Controller. As a Document Controller I learned to work in a very fast – more... paced environment and meet extremely tight deadlines. I was put in more contact with our Exxon clients and enjoyed every moment of it. – less
Good experience with PDMS and plant maintenance projects.
Piping Designer III (Former Employee), Deer Park, TX – March 11, 2014
Pros: good people and allowed to take pto when available.
Cons: being a contractor is difficult the client sees you as more of an asset not a person.
Good people at Jacobs to work with. I wish I could have stayed on with them. My direct supervisor was a good man and does his best for you and the group I worked with. Customer expectation can be very high for this company and they are not always placed in a position that they are given an easy task. I worked with a good group of people and hope to – more... work with this company again in the future. As in the piping business when work gets a little slow they have to let some people go. I wish they had another placement for me but it seems for a while that they may be a little slow in my division. A typical day could range from slow to very busy depending on the schedule that was placed in front of you. – less
Safety Supervisor, Site Investigations Division (Current Employee), morenci, az – March 2, 2014
Jacobs is a good company for the most part in my 1 year with them. My biggest issue, is that the schedule takes from a lot from time with family, and even just regular life outside of work. On the positive side having 1 day off in 14, (Specific to our project) Since before Christmas sure does allow for some nice paycheck.
Aside from that, all the time – more... you spend at site, you know for sire that you will be working with world class people. Be open to learning, and you will grow like a wildfire as far as your professional standing goes. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Laporte Texas – February 12, 2014
Cons: rudest group of people
Horrible company to work for. Management plays favoritism and HR does not investigate complaints (that would mean they would have to work). There is no training if you don't now their way they let you fall flat on your face. They allow the cost controller to run the show. Site manager HORRIBLE!!!!!
