CBI has a lot of work but constantly hires new people and immediately puts them in positions under a lot of pressure. They are constantly changing.
SR TECHNICAL SERVICES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Hackberry, LA – January 12, 2017
Job security was promised but the promise was not kept. This is a growing company and has gone outside the company for people from other companies to fill key staff positions with little internal guidance. This results in a lot of conflict of opinions and direction.
Designer (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – January 22, 2017
Great work atmosphere in office, inter office not so much. 2 different objectives, rules, quality standards and methods collided head on. Both offices good people, just different leadership. I thought I had found my dream job, but it just didn't work out. Grunt level leadership was some of the best. The team they assembled was the best of the best. I would work for CB&I again.
Mechanical Engineer - Heat Transfer (Current Employee) – Tyler, TX – October 5, 2016
I have learned many types of equipment at CB&I. I have attended many lunch-n-learns where supplier taught about their equipment and sometimes about how their equipment operates. I have met many good people and learned so much from those people. It has been a pleasure to work at CB&I.
Good training when there is time. Good experience when available. Good benefits.
There is no job security and no warning when they will lay you off.
Excellent company full of professionals who are focused and motivated to complete projects. Management is helpful and provide resources to those who request it or would like to advance their personal careers.
Compliance/Fabrication Engineer (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – September 13, 2016
I enjoyed my time at CB&I very much. I appreciated the professionalism of working at a nuclear facility and most of my coworkers, supervisors and managers were very genuine and kind. When I was given daily tasks and objectives I enjoyed prioritizing and being able to work at my own pace. For group projects, I was fond of organizing and assigning different tasks for everyone as well as overcoming obstacles suspected and unforeseen.
Longer lunches, feasible work hours, understanding supervision

Because of the variety of projects, there are opportunities to gain experience in a variety of skills. The management is professional and are always sensitive to employee issues which maintains a high morale.
Consistancy in management guidelines that define any issue.
Occasional overlap between departments creates confusion.
Environmental Scientist III (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 21, 2016
I was previously employed as an Environmental Scientist with Chicago Bridge & Iron (formerly the Shaw Group) working with the Environmental & Infrastructure Group in Houston, Texas. I have over 18 years of environmental experience. I participated in numerous hazardous waste site investigations and remedial activities at industrial, commercial and government facilities in the Southern and Northeastern US and Guam. My responsibilities included the preparation of various environmental reports, remedial construction oversight and hazardous waste disposal, as well as the management of field activities during groundwater and soil investigations. I have supervised the operations associated with Mobile Disaster Recovery Centers in selected counties affected by Hurricane Rita in Texas and Hurricane Whilma in Florida. I am proficient in using ArcGIS tools for GIS planning tasks on multiple residential and commercial sites as well. I previously provided support as the Quality Control Lead for several smelter sites in the Southwestern US. This entailed the thorough review of all field-related documentation.
I have been with this company several times over the years, and the pay is always one of the lowest in the area for the job that we do. this company also has a very good safety program but has major issues communicating their policies down to the field. In many cases I have witnessed these cases. The field management is lacking in certain areas but they are good guys just need some guidance into the right direction.
