    I worked at Shaw Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The projects were enjoyable. Office location in downtown was great. Coworkers were fine to work with. Being a large company the benefits and initial compensation were OK.

    Cons

    Work opportunities shifted to the worksite (SC, GA) and compensation for relocation was uncertain. Promotions and advancement were slow to come by which drove many employees to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the value of the 'producers' and do a better job promoting from within to help with retention.
