How many hours does Jacobs expect us to work? I'm wondering if it will ever be enough... I'm currently pulling 55+ hours weeks, and I keep getting pressured into putting even more hours in. How? Do they think we are robots? We don't have families?... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.
I worked for Jacob’s and their mantra that people are their greatest asset is so far removed from reality it’s not funny. We were constantly pressured to increase our billable work yet the tools needed to function day to day and increase productivity... read more
No layoffs, at least I am not aware of any. There is a ton of politics inside though.
I started with the company this year and I already hear that we may have redundancies and job cuts in Pasadena.
Any updates here. I left on my own in 2015. All the best.
Jacobs laid off 90% of the employees. They were 1800 to 1900 way back in 2012/2013. Since 2014, they laid off several employees and now the entire office space is available for lease. They have only 100 to 150 employees now.
Why are we so quiet?
I'd like to see if you think that our jobs are safe - I am referring to Pasadena.
I hear Jacobs are cutting a swathe through their senior team around the world.
Worked there 4 years. When layoffs came around, they chose to keep anyone related to project managers or the favorites of the engineers. Was told that I was being laid off because of my performance even though my performance was never questioned in... read more
Do not expect warning of a layoff at Jacobs, the axe swings blindly and quickly. This is a very badly managed company who only care about profit. Investment in training and people is minimal.
What is the likelihood of Jacobs layoffs in Pasadena in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Never trust what they say in Interview. They are very selfish. The lay off is based on racial profiles. Foreigners and colored people go first no matter how good they are. Mr. Noel Watson needs to change culture and terminate racist managers.
Do we have any updates here. With SLB and Baker going into layoffs this week is this something that we can expect here as well? If yes, what do you think, how much will Jacobs Engineering be affected?
We'll see big cuts in 2015 as we'll be getting less work due to depressed prices of energy, oil and gas, materials, etc. Everyone in this business will be affected by low prices of oil.
I am from Brazil, how do you get a job with Jacobs?
If you can help it NEVER WORK for JACOBS - ANY of their companies!...EVER!
Jacobs laid off about 10-15 employees in the Notth Texas region this week, as usual the were picked at random, didn't make sense to layoff half the ones they did.
Still laying off. Making unethical decisions regarding who gets laid off. Starting be run like a high school click. Clients are getting upset on Jacobs decisions of who to lay off.
Tough times, tough times. Spend is down, layoffs are up. Jacobs is a good company though...
