    One of the best company's to work for, no matter what your title was you felt like what you did made a difference. Everyone worked really well together.

    I worked at Shaw Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunity for those who like to travel. The exposure to subject matter experts is incredible so there will never be a technical question left open. I worked for Shaw for 6+ years and really enjoyed my co-workers and the overall experience.

    Cons

    The company is made up of multiple satellite engineering offices and the distribution of projects and, by default, exposure to new engineering opportunity became less and less evenly distributed across those offices despite relevant experience and competencies. The down side to not being willing to travel and not being located at engineering headquarters.

    large company can feel insignificant

    Advice to Management

    continue supporting your employees
