Everyone helps each other, there is no cliques or people out for each other, free tea and coffee, Good management structure, the most enjoyable part of the job was the people, relaxed atmosphere, subject matter experts on hand to help.
Flexi time, 9 day fortnight
awful paperwork procedures
Not an inclusive environment. Lacks skilled middle management. Top heavy with young graduates in order to charge the client higher margins, failing on quality and delivery without the experience needed. NOT equal or transparent salary brackets. Internal politics out of kilter with professional ability. Undervalued key staff. Cheap oversees labour of over qualified staff the business program, not good ethics. Superficial environment within which to work.
Benefits scheme and flexible working hours
Not rewarding or loyal to experienced employees
This was a short term assignment to specifically undertake a process review and to make recommendations to the Managing Director. My time at Jacobs field services in Grimsby was enjoyable due to the friendly work force and their collaborative approach. The MD was very approachable and very welcoming of the suggestions made for improvement.
American company with some odd ideas to the British, but you get used to it. Good to work for with a good team and interesting work. Loyalty seems to only go one way though (might be the bitter me saying that as just been put at risk of redundancy in the middle of a pandemic (this is after CEO video messaged a while ago that the company was financially healthy to ride out the situation!)
Free fruit, good working conditions

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Jacobs?
A range of networks available to employees. The job depends on the project. Workplace culture can vary from one office to another. If in a client office, the culture is usually determined by the client company.
Depends on projects & manager
Jacobs is a multi-disciplinary consultancy and hence, has a wide range of expertise in the office. The wide range of backgrounds and interests, friendly atmosphere and supportive management has made my role very interesting, engaging and enjoyable.
managed a team of safety professionals and recruited majority of them from trades to safety chartered professionals, I only left the business to progress my career as I did not have any opportunity for self career progression sadly.
