    Pros

    People have a wide range of skills, projects have the knowledge and resources required to deliver. Good offices, immediate management cohesive and caring. Mindful of family and location requirements. Sound policy to keep company on track.

    Cons

    Can be reluctant to bid on work with new clients - require a panel agreement or use of their own T&C's to proceed with a bid - limits new work that can be pursued. Lack of employee review and goal setting. Some significant contraction in staffing in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a common ground between managing Jacobs performance and share value, and maintaining stable workload (even if it means smaller projects or higher risk)

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview

    Met with 2 Engineers (the head of the department and lead engineer). Interview went for about 30 mins. It was more of a casual conversation rather then the barrage of all the behavioural questions that prospective graduates usually get in interviews. Went through resume and academic transcript and asked various questions, very easy going not stressful at all.
