Good company
Field Engineer (Current Employee), Lake Charles, LAJune 1, 2014
Pros: good people, good pay, good safety awareness, good work ethic.
Cons: specific to this location: management is ok, could be better. long hours, but it pays off.
Good company to work with, depending on the location.
You will learn a lot on the job and gain good experiance especially if you ask questions.
Immediate management is good, they try to work with the employees and needs. Upper management could use a little work.
Hardest part of the job is the lack of job security when on contract.
Most enjoyable is – more... the people you meet and get to work with (most of them). – less

No vision, No drive, No Incentives
Engineer (Current Employee), Canton, MAMay 12, 2014
Country club type of enviroment. No incentive to exceed expectations, everyone gets the same raise. Rewards poor performing employees the same as high achievers. No training. Lots of old people, doing it the way they always have. No future planning no leaders. Boring a great place to retire and do little.

Good Work Environment, but non-competitive wages
Subcontract Coordinator (Current Employee), The Woodlands, TXNovember 22, 2013
Pros: work environment/culture
Cons: wages aren't market value
Culture/work environment at CB'&I is great, most people are friendly, and at times seems to reflect a small business mindset.

I've learned many things at CB&I because the company is very encouraging in regards to development and skill building in a wide variety of departments.

The only draw back to working at CB&I is the non-competitive monetary wages. – more... It is well known within the company that similar positions at other companies aren't of equivalent value. – less

My position here consisted of an equal balance of desk and field activities. My management and coworkers were very personable, and the company has a high emphasis on safety. The opportunity for overtime and a good 401k are solid pluses for this company.
