    Pros

    Job opportunities, travel, large projects that are discussed at the national and international level.

    Cons

    Young staff with too much responsibility, far lower pay than competitors, bad benefits, high stress and low recognition of effort.

    Advice to Management

    Shaw has a large presence internationally, but has had so many growing pains in the last 10 years that the old systems no longer work. They are trying to fix this by hiring managers from other companies, but they just keep shifting which other EPC firm they are trying to imitate. First it was Duke Fluor Daniels, and now it is Bechtel. Stone and Webster had its own style that needs to return.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule, every other Friday off
    15 minutes from home

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere because so many rumors, back-stabbing fake people, managers have no idea how negative it is to bring in other employees from different departments (no experience) who make ALOT more $$$ than most of the department, long hours will burn you out, admins are instructed to watch your coming and goings, NO TRAINING.

    Advice to Management
