Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Charlotte, NC
Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Charlotte, NC

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

Pros

Have the lion's share of nuclear power work.

Cons

Management 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 ManagementAdvice

After 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.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some very good people, travel opportunities.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to know it's direction. Several talented engineers (senior and junior) laid off recently for seemingly no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out where you're going. How can you win new work when you lay off the talent and have no resumes to put in proposals?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
