I worked very hard and showed what all I can do and how fast I learned, and still was able to climb the ladder I was never granted the skills test to level up even though I knew more then others it wasn't about what you know but who you knew.

Great people! Great place to work. Great benefits and salary compensation. I worked with CB&I / McDermott on six projects in three states. I left because of the oil and gas market decline.

This company gives plenty of opportunity to advance and made me feel worthy doing my job! They were very understanding when I had become pregnant and had complications. I had to leave work longer than expected. They welcomed me back with open arms! I was treated very well by site management as well as the corporate office

Salaries are high for comparable positions.
There is a strong culture of keeping secrets from those you are supposed to be working with.

Within a month of a round of layoffs that saved the company ~$2.5M, the CEO pocketed a $3M retention bonus.

After confirming that everyone was ready and capable of working from home, the company delayed sending employees home until they had first completed layoffs, despite having two known cases of COVID-19 in the building.
Pros
high salaries
Cons
culture of keeping secrets

Great place to work. Set hours. Good people to work with. Had a lot of fun working here. Some room for advancement but be patient for it. Gotta take action and talk to the right ones to move up and of course be a hard worker. Don't get used for working too hard.
