I have been working at Shaw Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Full control to run division as needed with no resistance or interference. also have good direction and resources when needed.

Cons

Lack of communication with some departments that will create a give and take atmosphere. Can get caught up with needing to much justification for purchasing of parts from certain single sources

Advice to Management

Look toward the direction of getting what you pay for because a lot of the time the cost can justify the means

    I have been working at Shaw Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seems to be a stable company.

    Cons

    Health care benefits are bottom of the barrel. Mindset of company is construction, not retaining senior techs in the field. Main office in LA hasn't got a clue what is happening in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to retain your good employees. We are not laborers or pipe fitters that come and go.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I learned alot from several people that were also laidoff, bad decision.

    Cons

    Many, can't trust management, eliminated every female in middle management, the company has to "blame" someone if you don't win a bid, other members of the middle management did not stand up for their part in a lose, poor management decisions, everyone worried about having their job tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    You are going to have some hard times ahead. Decisions are being made about those that are laidoff that are based on pinning it on someone. No team building effort or "we all missed it" together. Absolutely the worst management style I have ever seen.
