    Pros

    No blame games, no office politics, no favoritism and no drama. All employees are helpful, honest, very intelligent, competent, and hard-working. The company seems to simply not hire slackers. The management is very fair and values the development of the employees.

    Every day new technical challenges come up, and CB&I offers the opportunity to take on those challenges and really excel.

    Cons

    Some of the work can be repetitive or tedious on the day-to-day scheme.

    Pros

    All the people at CB&I are easy to work with and get along with. I was treated with respect not just from CB&I, but from CF Client personnel I had interactions with. Overall, a short stint, knowing that going in, but have nothing bad to say about CB&I.

    Cons

    There were no downsides to working for CB&I.
