Anyone? Are there only projects for the Tank people?
It’s hard to get to the interview stage, but I’m still trying because my priority is to get out of here. I used to be proud to work here, but now I feel embarrassed to put McDermott on my resume. That name may have been relevant in the past, but I... — read more

How can I be committed to working in a company where there are no benefits, which has no vision, where only layoffs can be expected and where there is no future without cash injections. There is hardly any motivation. Not sure how you do it, but I... — read more
McD is revising this years budgets and guidance due to delayed contract awards, ongoing projects delayed and increase cost due to COVID.....looks like a repeat of 2019. This is crazy.

I heard from a very senior IT director that all IT will be outsourced from projects to offices by the end of 2021
Seems like without a new project this will just go away? I haven’t heard of any new projects. Anything going on in the BD world!

Do you think there may be small/medium/large McDermott Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
The machine will say it’s for a positive reason but the real truth is another cost cutting move and many more starting next week.

I've heard there might be layoffs sometime this month, can anyone confirm this?
I heard they are going to go to a 4-10 workweek policy and any holidays on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays wont be paid holidays unless you are at least manager level. A lot of the other engineering companies are doing the same thing.
