Lummus is not all they are cracked up to be. Full of politics and bullies. Lummus you think you know it all, the fact is you do not know anything. Andy needs to go back to India, Pat is a nice guy but not a leader and John is a politician. Need people in leadership that know what they are doing and promotes doing the right thing. Not sweeping stuff under the rug.

You just have to look back at every 3rd post to realize that Tyler is the secret weapon to turn this around.
For us MDR legacy dudes who are really bored by these posts, what is Tyler? How is CBI Houston different? Is there some political infighting going on that these lame-o posts are about?
Ask CB&I why they failed? Lummus has nothing to do with this.
Yes, a few in Lummus are arrogant, and a few are horrible (mainly Houston), but that is how any organisation is.
CB&I management was incompetent and thus led to multiple horrendous acquisition. In addition the EPC of CB&I was never good, they were not capable of big project execution.
But coming from Tyler it is specially rich.
These are 2 separate businesses and always has been. There is no vertical integration.
Facts are facts. Lummus thought they were so great when CB&I bought them. They destroyed CB&I and they will destroy MDR. See there is more to it than just numbers. Numbers only tell half the story. Let me ask you a question, if Lummus is so great why did CB&I fail? I have seen your work, it is junk. Better call the vendors to find out what you are supposed to do. Who needs you?
Really? Lummus is literally and absolutely the only part of MDR that has any market value and makes double digit profit on every contract. Where do you guys come up with this rubbish?
