    Pros

    So far, there is room to grow and they give you the opportunity to create your own path. I knew very little about my job, and 2 1/2 years later I know my job in and out. I'm learning other skills not just pertaining to my job.

    Cons

    We had a 9/10 schedule but not anymore, it's only a con because we were use to having every other Friday off. That would really only be it for me. I enjoy working with my teams here.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at McDermott as an intern

    Pros

    Had a mentor that guided me through assignments and what she wanted me to do. She answered any questions that I had and made the process easier.

    Cons

    Was significantly younger than most of the employees in the accounting department. Nobody really reached out and gave me advice. A lot of the work I was given was busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Have a program for interns to where they can better learn how to work at a big company. Assign tasks that will help in the future rather than work that is insignificant.
