    I have been working at Shaw Group full-time

    Pros

    Shaw is a large employer and thus has some of the benefits you would expect from any large company. They offer 401k matching 50% of your contribution up to 3% of your salary, health insurance, relocation and sign-on benefits, decent time off, and fairly stable and predictable jobs.

    Cons

    For a major company, the health benefits are rather pitiful and a source of major complaint amongst my coworkers. The company started as a construction firm, but now has some aspects of facility operations, the contrast in focus of those two aspects can cause conflict. A great deal of emphasis is placed on whether or not things work, rather than how they should work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your health insurance coverage and other benefits. The advantage of a company as large and diverse as Shaw is the ability to quickly move talant where it is needed; if your employees want to relocate but see your competitors offering better wages and benefits, they will leave.
