    I have been working at McDermott

    Pros

    I haven't been with the company for too long, but so far I haven't come across anyone who wasn't friendly and knowledgeable.
    Good pay and benefits, as well.

    Cons

    None so far. There's the occasional period of low work load, and sometimes the day can drag on. But those cycles of fervor and languor are fairly normal, and I suppose this experience depends on the work area.

    I worked at McDermott

    Pros

    growth
    learning opportunity
    zero tax
    can go anywhere from here

    Cons

    There is gross difference between salaries of Asians vs. People from Americas or EU (Graduate Engineers get more pay than Engineers of 5years experience).
    No work to life balance.
    Very rigorous work regime (you have to clock nearly 50 hrs per week).
    There is overtime shown on paper but it is manipulated in such way that you don’t get any extra money for that.
    Lot of abuse of HR policies for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be fair to all!
