Former Employee - Civil Structural Engineer IV ( Senior Structural) in Centennial, CO

I worked at Shaw Group full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Higher than average salary. Good projects when they had them. Serious work environment.

Cons

Too much overtime, and time for do-overs but not to get the project right the first go around. Lost credibility with clients do to overcharging relative to competitors, and hence lost projects and clients over it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to value for the client, than to value for senior management stockholders.

    Pros

    Location to my home and that's about it...

    Cons

    Complete Facade of how things work in other corporate environments. "THE Owner" is/was the main problem and now that it was bought by an equal sized company with even more immature corporate structure it will not be my choice to stay. Pay raises are a joke! 1-2% every couple of years. No Career Path unless someone gets fired or dies. They hire you for your expertise and diversity, but don't want you to voice.
    Very much still a Good Ole Boy Fab Shop mentality.

    Absolute Horrible Benefits!

    HR dept is the worst yet...Full of snakes!

    I've worked with a few good people, but most will never make eye contact or speak. In speaking with people that have been here for years they have all voiced their opinions of how downhill the company has gone.
