Tyler office closing

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.

Merger in the works!

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.

Opposite Day for MDR stock

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.

New Unkind of Company

Extra hours on the road and lost flex days. No more balance in the work life push pull. Losing touch with my kiddos. More strain on my marriage. Blood pressures up. Not what I signed up for. Something's gotta give.

Pulse of McDermott

This is a terrible place to work. Even employees who love their jobs hate this company. We have been treated shabbily. And it will continue. Layoffs. Pay cuts. Train your peers on H1B visas so they can offshore your peers. Morale is low but based on... read more

What Have We Learned?

The one thing I have learned from this board is how much hatred there is for corporate America. Listen to what the people are saying. Some listen to comment, that shows as well. May God be with all of us. United we stand, divided we fall.


I think its starting in Charlotte, no new work, and existing jobs completing. Hoping for some overseas assignments.
