Good people, inspiring managers
Good people in general, great engineering firm known worldwide. Managers were great. Pay was not so good. It seems the company has grown even more since then and the online profiles seem better now

Good company with decent pay and benefits
great culture, global projects but there is an issue with finding enough work when you are expected to be billable at 100%. This may lead to layoffs or being stressed.

Great place to work
Jacobs may not be the best place to work, but it is one of the best. They aim at hiring good people, not necessarily the best in industry. Work culture is good. There is nothing to complain about.
