    All of the Forman’s and upper management aren’t as they seem there’s a lot of back stabbing and trash talking not a very happy place to work at times and also if your of color they treat you differently

    I worked at CB&I full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and great people to work with. Being in IT services for the company, you have to be able to change directions on a dime as new projects popped up. My manager was great to work for and he really cared about his people, I can't say that about every manager there though.

    Cons

    Upper management changed alot with mergers/buyouts thus administrative rules changed as well. Its part of the business so its to be expected but dont forget about the people that helped you get there in the first place. Being that its a projected based engineering company, yes turn over happens but my department was well kept, we ran a tight ship and it showed. Biggest complaint I heard was not having 1 campus/building to house all projects, we had several offices around Houston and workers were expected to travel in between them or be transferred with the ebb and flow of project growth. Corporate always seemed bloated.

    Advice to Management

    invest in a Campus!
