    I have been working at McDermott

    Pros

    Great knowledgeable coworkers that work as team and help each others when needed, the salary is pretty good too.

    Cons

    Last year a lot of people with extensive years of experience for laid off, a lot of uncertainties especially since the stock went down pretty low. Immediate manager tries to micro manage which already drove a couple of good people out. The benefits could be a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to micro manage people and try to hold on to the remaining experienced people you have.

    Pros

    Past projects
    A very few supervisors with great technical knowledge

    Cons

    A lot. First, a short sighted decision to layoff conventional engineering.
    Laid off people who were working for 30 years and more, who are supposed to be the face of the company.
    Once used to be innovative, but not now. Atleast, not in Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best way to get better quarterky results is to do innvoative, challenging and profitable projects. Not closing offices. At this rate only upper management will stay.
