Company has its own goals but management sometimes is not in the same page. Overall it is a good company to work for. If, I had the opportunity to work for it again I will.

Very good company to work for.

Company cares for employees, pay rate is always on hand depending on your skills, sometimes recruiters may offer you come back after two or three months at their office to discuss payment again if gained experienced in that short time.


Good job environment and communication with supervisors

Great people to work with. Had a lot of fun and hung a lot of iron.

Safety bonuses and end of job bonuses. They have a good safety culture and took care of us. Kept us on site in rain and lightning instead of sending us home.

Good Job. Management needs improvement. Needs fresh Ideas. Over stressed out. Needed to rely more on Middle management.

Good Job. Good lower and middle management. Upper Management needs improvement. Older and out of date management. Needs fresh Ideas. Over stressed out. Needed to rely more on Middle management, mainly General Foreman and Foreman to make minor decisions about planning and production procedures.

Great company to work for

I had a very good experience with the McDermott family. I started with CB&I and McDermott bought them out . I didn't know what to expect but it was a great experience.


Safety and training

Great place to work. Management is responsive. Colleagues are friendly. Compensation is fair.

Constantly surrounded by intelligent and motivated peers who consistently do their best, which motivates you to do yours. Compensation is fair, although hours can be long.

Good Company Overall

Good company if you get on a good crew. The job uncertainty gets old. The people for the most part are easy to get along with and willing to teach you if you are willing to learn


Pay, learn alot


Being away from family

Get ready to work

You need to be on top of your game to stay at the top here. Just do your work and be genuine. I believe they recognize that. The only problem with being in a large corporate environment like this one is that it is a business and you are just another number.


nice headquarters


never know when the ax is coming

Good pay with good benefits and wonderful people to work with

Best thing I liked about working for McDermott is that they are very team- oriented. Before working with them, I had only had experience with working system scaffold, but afterwards I learned how to build with tube and clamp. With that, it took my game to the next level.

Rewarding and interesting construction work

Worked in the construction group at numerous sites along the gulf coast. Work was rewarded by seeing tangible progress made everyday. However, long hours and undesirable work locations made a long term career unsustainable.


Per diem for site work


Long hours, undesirable work locations

Depends on your manager

It really just depends on where you work. I have a great manager so I love my job. It;s very stress free and easy. Some days are busy and some days are not. I feel that the pay is pretty fair for the market, but raises have been non-existent.

Different Company then when I started

I started as an employee of CB&I and was merged into McDermott. The company is okay, some pros and cons like any other company. The culture is different than when I first started with the organization, at that time they knew what they were good at and what they were not good at. Over the years they purchased other companies and tried to grow very fast. In the end it burned them as they attempted to do too much too fast and couldn't handle bringing in so many new people on new types of projects. The leftovers were collected by multiple companies and the original culture and company are gone forever.


Opportunities to see the world


Management changes and culture changes, work-life balance is one sided to work
