Pros

Nice team, varied work, some fairly interesting projects. Fairly flexible with working from home (depending on your manager and team).

Cons

Very large company, which isn’t for everyone. Flexible hours and WFH really depends on your managers discretion.

  1. Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United Kingdom
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Process:
    1. First interview arranged via Teams
    2. The interview went great. However, the senior manager couldn’t attend so they had to arrange a second interview.
    3. Second interview: I waited for 30 minutes before the recruiter realised that they didn’t send the invite to the managers so they had to reschedule the second interview.
    4. Actual second interview went great.
    5. I was then made an offer two weeks later for a job that is two grades lower than that I applied to, a salary significantly less than my current salary, essentially equivalent to what I was on 5 years ago.

    Pro:
    - Very nice and friendly people

    Cons:
    - Poor recruitment process
    - Clear misjudgment of talent

    Overall very bad experience.
