The culture and environment at Mcdermott is so toxic all across. Why does everyone operate as if any of that is normal. The insane work hours, the disrespect, the micromanagement, people being rude to one another. All so wrong

You have got to be kidding
So they very individual who cost the company a rumored 200mUSD for misappropriation of his previous employers Commerical information. And was settled out of court just got promoted. It’s like a bad movie.

Does this remind anyone else of Enron
I can’t help but wonder if anyone else sees a similarity between McDermott’s business model and Enron’s.
We need to bring back the Tyler Office. We did real engineering here and was well respected in the world.

Mcdif 0.45 today, down 90% in a year. Heading to zero again? They deserve it
More layoffs and closures

If the pandemic hadn't happened...
The impact of the pandemic on business is great, that’s understandable, but I’m not sure if the situation in this company would have been any better if the pandemic hadn’t happened. It was in quite critical condition even before the pandemic. I am... — read more
Lack of enthusiasm
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
