    I worked at Shaw Group

    Pros

    International focus, huge backlog, up to date technology and really ethnically diverse for a company based in louisisana. Lot's of good people that have the intellect and education to potentally get a lot of good things accomplised.

    Cons

    Very volitle and uncertain, everthing ambiguous, very complex, takes a month to get approval to buy a box of paper. Really impossilbe to get anything done, then the blame game starts in high gear. Definetly the most poorly managed oranization i have worked for in my 30 years in the construction business. No idea of cost or who is responsible for what.---- just very discombobulated. The new hires just don't have a clue... and not a large enough base of experineced workers - they pick up skills, get sick of the place - then leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shrink down to size, listen to subordinates, quit trying to track evertything, managment is not smart enough to track what is important- no more stupid corporate inititives - trust your people - this is good pipe manufacturing company being weighed down by 2 formerly bancrupt companies.
