    Don't globalize. Should have stuck with what made the company strong...-just fabricating.

    Pros

    JRM offers a great salary and are great people to work for and with for the most part (there's always one or two in every company who are hard to work with). For the most part, everyone works as a team no matter their position in the company or as a contractor. Employees and contract employees are treated with respect. It seems that, when hiring, how a person will fit in seems to be considered in addition to their qualifications to make sure everyone can work as a team. I think this is a great company to work for and plan to stay a very long time!

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet after more than a year except that most positions are dependent upon projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Learning curve is steep and the work is really competitive that takes out the best from you.
    Treatment of employees is the main priority and are taken care well which makes us enjoy work.

    Cons

    It is more related to construction and marine and it is core for civil and structural engineering work. Other departments like process, mechanical do not have that major role compared to the structural and civil department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the work. The oil field is down. Don't lose hope and more than that don't lose values.
