Large Company which values employees
Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee), Lake Charles, LAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: good benefits, multiple work locations, great management team
Cons: typical construction industry workforce fluxuations
The work environment was almost always the peak of professionalism. There is pressure to complete tasks on time & under budget, but micromanagement is very rare. I was provided all manner of training, coaching, and support. My co-workers are great to work with and always willing to lend a hand. The most enjoyable part of the job is the team atmosphere, the travel, and the challenges. The hardest part of the job can be the typical red tape process hindering rapid action common to large company's.

QA/QC - Inspector II (Former Employee), Geismar, LAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: good working atmosphere, good insurance
Cons: did not keep me working, hourly rate could have been better
I enjoyed learning CB&I's tracking programs, management and co-workers were pleasant. I would say that the hardest part of the project was the frustration dealing with the I&E contractor. The most enjoyable was the completion of my discipline

A great bunch of down to earth, but business and safety oriented, team.
Firewatch / Helper (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXOctober 21, 2014
Pros: they gave a big dinner for the employees to show their appreciation.
I enjoyed working for CB&I, they were an excellent company to work for, management was great, they acknowledged their crews accomplishments and commended them for it. That's an action not many companies show their employees, which give their employees a more incentive to keep doing a good and thorough job.

ok place to work
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Orangeburg, SCOctober 20, 2014
typical day was loading/unloading various trucks with ibuprofen
was not very hard to pick up on what to do
management for the client was good but as far as actual management they were just happy to be in that position and didn't care about employees.
co-workers were good to work with
hardest part was doing the same thing day in and day out with no reward or advancement

Old boys' network
Client Program Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 23, 2014
Cons: terrible healthcare coverage, outmoded leadership
Corporate leadership is dominated by Southern white males who reward those just like them. Behavior that would merit firing anywhere else is tolerated here. Chicago office has had high attrition in the last 6 months, due to the abrupt firing of the VP of Sustainability.

Was not a good place to work at all
Construction Technical Support (Former Employee), Addis, LAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: healthcare benefits were good and vacation could be taken mostly anytime.
Cons: extremely long work days, no job security, no work/home or life balance
My work schedule was from 6:00 am-3:30pm, but in reality my schedule was from sun up to sun down. Management was terrible in setting unrealistic goals and ridiculous timeframes in completing work. Raises were barely given and when given, they were minimal. Some co-workers were a joy to work with and others were not. Overtime was plentiful and available if needed. Working from home was an okay option, but most days it was a must in addition to working long hours at the office. I was constantly rushed to complete assignments and after my last assignment, i was immediately released and escorted out the door and off the premises.

After working for the company it has been a great 3 years so far. But with the growth of wanting to gain more experience, I'm willing to leave for another great company.
