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

    Pros

    Huge organization with limitless opportunity.

    Some really smart people work here. Good reputation for operational performance and a company that stands behind its work.

    Cons

    Subject to energy cycles.

    Biggest con is politics. Most important product is documenting that when something goes astray that you did not do it.

    Invincible is inaction rather than aggressive attempts at doing it better.

    Advice to Management

    Foster attitude of allowing good people to actually do what you hired them to do. I actually quit a second job when McDermott acquired my employer rather than work at McDermott again. Sad.
