Pros

There are so many oppurtunites for people with good work ethic. Showing alot of effort will make you rise quickly. The nuke sector is really ramping up, finding a job on one of the new plants will ensure a steady job for years to come.

Cons

There is too much overhead causing Shaw to be uncompetitive for smaller projects. This means you will be traveling alot. The estimaters for projects are not held accountable for busted bids.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your employees do their job. Micro-management is a killer for morale.

    Pros

    Big company with lots of opportunities, including many locations available for transfer. The HR is very friendly and willing to assist. Work as intern is an educational experience with challenges without imposing too much unwanted stress.

    Cons

    Hard to assess downsides of the company. Worked there for a brief period of time as a temp. intern. Definitely would consider a full-time position with the Shaw Group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management appears to be excellent, down-to-earth individuals. Again, hard to assess much in the brief work period however, management appears to be highly motatived and example-setting. Seemingly a pleasant group to work with.
