QC Manager
Mechanical Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  FortSeptember 20, 2018
Anyone seeking to apply for this position should be aware. QC Managers are chewed up and spit out by Shell on a regular basis. If you are looking for a challenge, then by all means take this job. Just know that your Corporate duties will not allow you much time to support the QC Inspectors under your tenure.
Reactive management styles leaves little room for progressive planning and support of Craft. Management keeps an "arms length" from their Craft and leave most of the heavy lifting to the QC Insp / Foremen.
Pros
Good money for being home
Cons
Shallow self preserving culture

Design Engineer, Piping Stress & Materials (Former Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraNovember 8, 2017
Jacobs is a good place to work at but maybe not the best place to start your career. They need to work more on their training programs. Also for trainees, they need to come up with better opportunities.
