Shaw Group - Lower your expectations.

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Shaw Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHave the lion's share of nuclear power work.

ConsManagement succombs to intimidation by CEO creating an environment where one cannot be open with the truth. Many of those who were hired to fill senior management positions are looking to fulfil their obligations and are not looking to rock the boat. Despite their 'value the individual' talk, this is a business. Have seen many people hired, then fired. There is no true career path in this company as most senior positions are filled from the outside. Most of the working level feel's they are just cogs in a wheel, albeit everyone is there by choice.

Advice to Senior ManagementAfter the sale to CB&I and current CEO and senior management is replaced, hopefully what remains of the Shaw group will begin to function properly. Many of the 'yes' men need to be replaced with people who actually have the experience and will to perform the job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
