Fast Paced Work Environment
Document Controller / Project Admin (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LAMarch 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

Piping Designer III (Former Employee), Deer Park, TXMarch 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

WORK WORK WORK, the good and bad side.
Safety Supervisor, Site Investigations Division (Current Employee), morenci, azMarch 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
