Funny how Houston always wants to point the finger at someone else like Tyler. Just goes to show how professional these jokers are. What a bunch of twits. Ever wonder why CB&I had so many lawsuits at the end?
You can buy McDermott Vacation Days gift cards at Costco for 20% off! A great Secret Santa gift idea! AND McDermott will be running a Groupon special in January.
No amount of positives can change the fact that this is a dead end job in a nutshell. If you work at McDermott one of the two things will happen to you. You will be laid off or end up stuck in the same position forever. That's it. There is pretty... read more
Houston engineering is nothing more than glorified clerks! Project management, scheduling and purchasing clerks. All they can do is shuffle paper.
Not only can we now buy our on vacation time, we can now buy our own STDs. Thank goodness it’s almost BJ Friday!
Lummus destroyed CB&I and they will do the same at McDermott if you let them. Better drop them like a hot potato. Lummus thinks they know everything and they are to stupid to listen. They came to CB&I with all of these big ideas. All they did was run... read more

Operator: And our last question is from Samuel L. Jackson of Pulp Fiction Investors. Caller: David, do I look like Mrs. Marsellus Wallace?! Dickless: Wha--?!"
Twenty-one years and never once have I waivered in my loyalty to CB&I. When McDermott took over, I made a commitment to do the same with them, and I did. It’s how I was brought up. However, I have never been approached, provided any encouragement, or... read more
The stock is crashing and the lenders are calling in the debt. They want to get something before it is all gone. We will be bankrupt by the end of the week.
Due to increased pressure for CPI there will not be any raises or cost of living adjustments for the foreseeable future. As per S Allen and if you think that is not fair or right then the door is over there. We will continue giving targeted raises... read more

I am hearing the other offices are planning to walkout Friday, demanding pay raises and not silly slogans.
Will offshoring happen before bankruptcy? How does Indian bankruptcy law work?
I overheard today at the office we might see some more layoffs sometime next week. Anybody knows more about it? Or maybe somebody can hopefully tell me that it's just a rumor and nothing to get all worked up about (which is already too late?) I... read more

The board is going to fire David d---son before the end of the year. Then begin divesting the loosing business lines.
I saw moving boxes being readied to go to the Tyler offices. Word is they are the next to go, well most of them. Some are still guaranteed a position until some of the claims are settled along with the legal battle or the reficar lawsuit.
Good news! We are going to merge, turns out it is easier to merge with Technip since most of the leadership came from there and the COO already has all of the strategy on his google drive.
How is it that every time an award announcement is made the stock takes a hit? Is the street scared we don’t know how to make money? I’m curious too.
Who is handling the bazillions in debt now that the last guy is tossed out by Dr Jekyll? I hope it is another Technip schmuck with useful trade secrets!
