Quarterly Results end of month

Any word on sizable wins that will get the stock price up? If not I fear some heavy activity on this thread. Don't see much contribution from CB&I.

The 99% Speak

Flexing was a nice perk; however, how many companies offer it? Grow up. Companies move all the time. Employees either move too or find something else, sorry this is how the real world works. Whining on here will not change your situation

CPI = budget cuts and staffing reductions

As a former long term McDermott employee who survived the MPI program but not the FTG program here’s a little translation for all the new McDermott employees formerly CB&I. They announced the CPI program about the time I was made redundant. This is a... read more

Lifeline Provided

If your company (A) was just bailed out by another company (B) because company A's projects were hemorrhaging losses then something needed to be done. If the leader of company B decides that a shift in work schedule to see if working every business... read more

Power Division not so powerful!

So, all the focus is on Houston. What’s the future of the Charlotte Office? From what is seen in the field you have a dysfunctional group, it appears that much work is required to unite the CB&I legacy employees and Shaw Group. Remember there’s no “I... read more

Good luck

I left a while back and got a good job with a stable company. The shining light of the transition was the guy who got rid of all the people making a difference in HR and then claimed that the programs they created and he tried to kill were his ideas... read more

Tyler office

Anyone hearing what will happen to the Tyler office? Got a good group of engineers that have been working together for a long time. Just need a chance to get back to winning way to show off our abilities that built the EPC company.

The Energy corridor

We are gone either way so whats the difference? At least we would get to stay in The Woodlands a bit longer instead of being moved to The Energy corridor where no one wants to go


Congrats MDR. You just bought a dead company. I give it a year and new MDR will be in bankruptcy.
