Topics regarding layoffs at Chicago Bridge & Iron


Has anyone else who has been laid off experienced problems getting their W2? I have left messages for their hotline twice and heard nothing back. Albeit, they promise to return calls in 2-3 days.

Can't argue with this

MCD bought a bag of crap when they bought CB&I. The CB&I executive team had already drained the company by the time MCD bought them. The technology is old and there is not many people left that know what they are doing. Got to love the business... —  read more 


Company communications want us to get all excited about a new logo while common employees have to search the web for information because promises of "transparency" fall short. We are keot in the dark and don't know when that tap on the shoulder may... —  read more 

Tyler Texas Closing

Has anyone heard the they will be closing the Tyler location? There have sure lost a lot of good engineers. I wonder what will happen to the rest of the admin, procurement and the remaining engineers.


While the company burns, CBI EMT is asking the Board to increase their parting bonuses by millions. Why? Because of the 1Q financials which are a lie. They are 100's of millions off and that is what we shared with the street. We are the Enron of... —  read more 

MDR is in charge

It may be called a merger of so called equals, but the fact is becoming apparent that MDR is the top dog in this fight. The recent announcement of the new executive leadership. 10 MDR execs, 4 CBI execs. Given the proven incompetency of CBI... —  read more

McDermott Backstabbing????

One must really question the management team from McDermott. Through the entire "Merger" process there has been a lack of transparency. Numerous times what has been told to CBI folks has been the opposite of what has come to pass. Latest is that... —  read more

CMS was a complete failure

CB&I was known for water towers and tanks, now it is time to get to other things. Whoever thought up CMS without a total integration study and comment resolution should be fired, that was the beginning of the end. They never integrated, somebody made... —  read more

Warning this is a fake zine

I followed layoff for a year when my company 'merged' and noticed lots of internal intervention etc. Also heavy use by insider IT trolls. It also used auto reply bots with silly phrases not making any sense. Don't draw any final conclusions from... —  read more

Look for new jobs

New management has already told us to look for jobs. Think about it. MDR already has a 3 year head start on how to work lean. Cbi has layers and layers Of engineering fat. Multiple layers of managers, directors, VPs and then everything gets check and... —  read more 

More Layoffs Coming

CB&I is broke, how broke? They signed a office lease on the bad side of town but is was cheap. Employees cars are getting broke into and people are being robbed. Yet their executives are in the Woodlands, out of harms way. They cannot even afford to... —  read more 


F--- it. I'm out. Only so much sh--, so much uncertainty and lack of appreciation, so many threats to my livelihood, I can take before I wake up and reclaim my self respect. Done. Done.

10 - 20% layoff coming?

Aappears the first to go are generally, contractors, recent new hires and deadwood. If you're a solid performer and there's work, should be ok, for now. No one is guaranteed a job or entitled to a paycheck. I heard- directs were given severance-... —  read more 

Any real layoffs info?

I was wondering if apart from the bombastic announcements in all caps that claim major layoffs are incoming (no clues whatsoever that it's trolling, nope, not a one,) do we have any concrete info on what we might be looking at in the following... —  read more
