    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Shaw Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people, travel opportunities.

    Cons

    The company doesn't seem to know it's direction. Several talented engineers (senior and junior) laid off recently for seemingly no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where you're going. How can you win new work when you lay off the talent and have no resumes to put in proposals?

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

    Pros

    Good place to get technical experience.

    Cons

    There is still no real career path for engineers, at least not at my site. Everyone says, "You get what you get based on what you negotiate walking in the door", and after that it's 2% or 3% raises each year. Supervisors and Managers are poor communicators and often neglect their employees. Upper management appears to make no effort to communicate with employees. Employees dedicated to one site often are unable to move to other jobs/locations within the company because they're "too valuable" where they're at.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to developing your people. Email communications that talk about promotions within the corporate structure are meaningless to those of us in the field. We dont' know who those people are and really don't care. Pay attention to your people, because other companies are trying to recruit them away from you (and succeeding). The job market for experienced utility engineers is huge.
