Buyer (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 23, 2016
Procurement is broken. They overwork all of the Buyers even to the point of making them sick and still having to come in while coughing on everybody. and never make a process improvement suggestion because they will blacklist you. Oh, and never report management on any ethics violations because they will just fire you. I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy.
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 4, 2016
its a good place to work but I wouldn't try to make it a career theirs really no management and people pretty much do what they want and they put all the pressure on the welder the welder has to constantly work extremely hard for low pay and they constantly rush you plus it has to be perfect witch I don't mind if I'm getting perfect money witch they were no where near paying they paid me 14.00 till my last two weeks then they fired me when I finished the contract and they kept the people who where doing nothing but standing around and paid them more than the person whos actually doing the job and no-one did anything about it their was guys having long conversations and some guy would clock in and go to sleep but instead of saying anything to them they would come and rush me to finish my job and then tell me to help them do their jobs it was very frustrating at times but I managed to get the job done as I always do
mostly a manual labour job; follow safety procedures, work with a team, get the job done

supervisor (Former Employee) – middle east jabal ali. – February 15, 2014
At mcdermott all Jr.Levels are always pressurized and the name of safety is just for showing actually in field project superintendents are indirectly pressurizing field people to do mistakes while working. It is resulting in accidents in yard, fi such thing happened all are finding target to blame for the accidents, and main cause behind the accidents is hidden. In my service i have witness many accidents and seen targets being thrown out of company. project engineers improper planning is always the reason for extra man hours needed for projects. Truth about the Mcdermott History is only Asian peoples are being victims of action. not seen any European or superintendent terminated for any accidents. As they are the safest out there. This is story of jabal ali mcdermott plant.
The work was challenging and I was able to interface with several departments within the company. The upper management was at times very hard to work with and often gave a disjointed direction on projects they championed.
The communications department is set up to produce a wide variety of materials.
understaffed and un-guided direction from unscheduled overtime and undue stress
