Need for major change

Company needs to hire people with talent and not people referred by family and friends and needs to give all the employees the same benefits if doing the same work. Nepotism needs to be wiped out from Mcdermott.

Pros

No one to monitor what you do.

Cons

Nepotism / poor managment skills

you will learn a lot and become more competitive

Working in the company was exciting and a lot of hardwork as a new employee. I learn a lot from my senior colleagues. Work is fast-paced, after work is done, there's another work which is helpful to be more productive. I don't get much time to do personal things because I'm more focus on my work. But based on my observation, almost half of the employees, particularly seniors are laid back, don't work much, and more of chit chat to their colleagues. Most of the higher position also has redundant work, more on giving jobs under them. Politics in the company also was way too high. Some senior HR heads also was uncooperative and hard to please while some are very helpful. Overall, my experience working there was very productive for me because I gain a lot of knowledge and experience and had friends too.

Pros

free transportation

Cons

too much politics inside

Need to balance in work culture

The overall company has a system but its MNC believes in hire and fire at very fast rate. So, have to be all the time proactive and ready for the mental challenges for the execution of p.roject works

Productive and Fun place to work

CB&I is ag good company to work for, especially if you are looking for career growth and knowledge, working on site is a must in CB&I to gain strong construction knowledge. Career growth is good in CB&I, they treat the employee as a family and take care of your needs, also guide you for career growth.

Typical Workday

Everything with Mcdermott is professional. From security gate, IT, safety regulations and daily operations. You cannot ask for a better working environment.

Zero Tolerance of Safety

I admire the safety awareness and training on every individual working at the company. They help our daily activities easier and simpler. and it is not only at work but also outside the company.

Job insecurity

Too much fluctuations in manpower utilities, difficult to plan any personal commitments, too much bias based on language and nationality, lack of recognition of hardworking and performance.

Pros

Exposure yard activities

Cons

Nepotism
Was this review helpful?

No career growth

Management is biased and career growth is stagnant. Hard work is not recognized and it comes down to begging and pleading for growth. Not recommended as a long term career option.
