CB&I is a desirable place to work.
Sr. Plate Structural Designer (Current Employee), Plainfield, ILNovember 19, 2013
My overall thoughts regarding CB&I are all satisfactory. The benefit package stands out as one of the better options here, and they do strive to get better with safety, advancement, and management. So I'm happy with the company, but the salaries are an issue.

Company is Growing, but Long-time Employees Left Behind
Mechanical Engineer II (Current Employee), Houston, TXOctober 11, 2013
Company is growing aggressively. Management demands performance and results. Management expectations are high. Long hours are often required. There are ample challenges and opportunities, but don't expect much recognition. Company offers competitive compensation to new hires, but doesn't provide enough incentive to existing employees to promote retention. – more... Company does not offer much activity outside of work (team building, sports leagues, etc). Company is committed to safety, however. – less

Productive workplace, Friendly work environment
Power Plant Piping Designer/CAD/PDS Tech. (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: free lunches, work environment, co-workers
Cons: healthcare compared to other companies, career/position advancment.
A typical consisted of phone calls and meetings on certain days to finish work to meet the project schedule.

I learned a lot here at Shaw/CB&I to help aid my career and continue my legacy in the Power Plant industry.

Managers and Sr. Engineers/Designers helped a lot along the way.

The hardest part of my job was when it was depended upon other workers – more... to finish their portion in order to finish your assignment.

The most enjoyable portion was venturing to project site and learning new technologies of the Power Plant industry along with new projects. – less

The people are the best part
Records and Information Management Tech 2 (Current Employee), LouisianaJune 30, 2013
Pros: focus on safety and the human factor
Cons: some lower management could use some coaching on how to handle people.
I have found the pay to be competitive with the rest of the industry. I have run across some middle-managers that are ill equipped for the task of managing actual humans. I have also seen some of management that I would rank at the top of any in the industry. The people a friendly and bright. The companies focus on health and safety is uncompromising – more... and it is the thing I love the most about CB&I. – less
