    I have been working at Chicago Bridge & Iron full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Multi-facteted company with many opportunities
    Annual company contribution to employee 401-k at all levels
    Competitive pay and benefits
    Well managed overall at the executive level with just a few exceptions
    Many hidden benefits such as personal cell phone discounts and cheap MS Office for home computer

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and unflexible regarding company procedures
    Tries to implement a "one size fits all" concept to standardize all offices worldwide
    Poor bonus policy below executive level for above average project performance
    Difficult to negotiate pay or benefits after hiring on. Make your best deal when hiring on. You're pretty much locked in afterward, even with exceptional performance reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a defined bonus structure to reward exceptional performance at all project levels
    Allow more flexibility to standard company procedures. There can still be a coherent structure to all company locations without the rigidity.
    Executives should hold more townhall sessions at each location to appear more transparent and less aloof.
    Offer or be open to improve benefits in addition to salary increases. I know someone who left because the company refused to consider one extra week of vacation.
