I have been working at Shaw Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is fair. Management in LA is non existent in this remote location. Unless the customer complains, corp forgets we exist.

Cons

Benefits are somewhat below average. Health insurance is costly and corp mindset is skewed towards construction, forgetting we are contract maintenance.

Advice to Management

Bite the bullet and give benefits that are good enough to recrute and keep good people.

Other Employee Reviews for Shaw Group

  1. "no pressure, nice managers"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Pretty good hourly rate for an unskilled position
    the Project Managers were not too demanding about attendance, and understanding if there were conflicts in scheduling work
    People were generally good natured and kind

    Cons

    pressure to work more increased a bit as the project deadline approached
    there was not a lot of regular feedback about whether we were doing a good job or not, which could have improved performance if it was provided.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't interact much with the upper management, but I think they could have been more motivating and helped us feel like a team that was accomplishing something important, which would have improved attendance and performance on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to diversify in to more different job markets like URS and CH2M Hill. Just power and Environmental Fed work is not enough. Open your eyes to the changing job market.
