Big company. Good senior leadership. Good high level strategy.
Director - Business Development (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 28, 2016
Overall, CB&I is a good company with an excellent high level strategy. The company has aligned to be the leader in the "energy infrastructure" space.
The acquiring of of Shaw/Stone&Webster was a mistake. However, at the time, it made sense and was a good risk. It just didn't pan out.
Now the company is focused on markets were they are successful and should be successful going forward.
The company's benefits and compensation are from the dark ages. They don't like telecommuters. Benefits are subpar - compared to other employers. Compensation lacks any sort of incentive component.
Your employment with the company will be tied to the success of the business-line or project that you're associated with. So, if there's a change in direction or projects ends, so will your job. But, that's no different than anyplace else.
This sounds pretty negative, so far. But, i just wanted to paint a picture of the reality.
They company does good work. They have an international footprint and are poised for future growth. CB&I has a long legacy that will continue for many decades.
Large company. Good training.
Mediocre compensation and benefits.
