    I have been working at Chicago Bridge & Iron

    Pros

    Good pay
    Good benefits
    Great team that I personally worked with at our office
    Good advancement opportunities
    Good work/life balance when projects aren't wrapping up

    Cons

    CEO and upper senior management have fair to poor communication skills
    A perception of "secret, back door" mishandlings of offices and staff because of the poor communication skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just be open and honest with the people you employ. You might be surprised at the amount of respect and loyalty you get from it, even when handing out bad news.

    I worked at Chicago Bridge & Iron

    Pros

    decent salary and benefits
    some opportunity for varied experience
    good for early career

    Cons

    Lots of very unqualified, clueless people entrenched in management.
    Very poor job of integrating acquisitions by some departments.
    Very poor at utilizing global resources, lots of provincialism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cb&i still stands for cousins, brothers & inlaws, in some departments.
    Look at retention, especially from acquired companies, and analyze the root causes
