    I worked at The Babcock & Wilcox Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    9/80, flex start/stop time, decent benefits

    Cons

    Promoted people based on relationships, not by their education or skill level. Took 10 yrs to achieve a decent living and male counterparts made more $ for less knowledge. Given promotions earlier. Top levels are way too heavy. Laid off based on wages, not on performance. Since then, people with a lot less experience have been promoted to higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Why give the CEO a 9M bonus after laying off over 500 in 2-3 yrs? Showing a profit by cutting employees.......
