I worked at McDermott full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

My manager was awesome. Enjoyed working for him. Work was challenging

Cons

Brought in new C-level management and changed things. Last I heard, they took away the yearly bonuses and no merit raises for the 1st time were given out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open and communicate with your teams

    "Has-been" company, management has already run company into ground, a matter of time before they close their doors.

    I worked at McDermott full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers, lower management/ non management people level mostly helpful. People there for 25+ years (mostly all laid off now) were a HUGE resource.

    Cons

    No work. Barely any at all in Houston office. Lots of people on overhead. Subsea jobs abysmal, vessels are non competitive when compared to others in industry.

    They have laid off most of their experienced engineers. Lay off your senior management/HR managment first, not these guys that have been loyal to you 25-30 years. LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES, especially the loyal ones

    Current employees should get out before its too late....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For once, think before you make a decision.

  2. In the world of engineering, seemed like a pretty fair employer. Have to weather the ups and downs of business cycles.

    I worked at McDermott full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were all good, the working hours decent, and expectations reasonable while allowing for new challenges. Pay was fair.

    Cons

    Location only convenient at HQ if you live in west part of Houston. Traffic all around the area petty heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to offering new opportunities to current employees before laying off.
