    I worked at McDermott

    Pros

    Competitive pay package with comprehensive benefit package. International reputable contractor with a long history and track record.

    Cons

    Exceptional high turn over for new starters
    Bully style management
    Fear culture
    Lack of trrust in their people
    Good old marine boys culture
    Lack of innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should realize the importance of people and using effective management styles to get the best out of the organization. Just applying fear does not work, neither using outdated Jack Welch practices and fire 10% of the people. Quality of leadership goes a long way, just promoting young guys will not give this company the reforms it needs to remain competitive.
