Thread regarding McDermott International Inc. layoffs

Nepotism

I am literally working in a department where my boss also has his son working for him. And other family members as well. How do I even go about this when HR already knows. The bias is ridiculous.

It's the same at the Houston Fab shop. We used to have a real plant manager that didn't let that happen. Now every time the plant manager changes so does the better paying jobs or at least the last name of the people who begin working them. The wage difference is quite a bit different when the new employees take the jobs. Usually $40 to 80 a week more. I have been with CBI almost 30 years and only for a short period it's always been that way.

Ha, the old CBI Safety VP was married to his direct report a director and kept it hidden. It came to light and nothing changed. Well the director was "promoted" to a life time opportunity position in another department. Come to find out the "promotion" was a demotion and the director quit after 3 months. But the boss stayed on until the bitter end, glad he got walked out in the end.

Employees in many large companys have access to an Ethics Hotline of sorts, separate from the company itself, where employees can anonymously call in and report questionable behaviour. Do McDermott employees have access to something like this? If so, use it, as long as your story isn't a bunch of sh--e.

As far as going to HR to report this -- need to remember that HR in any company is there to protect the company's interests, not yours. They are not your advocate.

The problem I see is the lead on my project has a couple girlfriends working for him. That's right. Not just one girlfriend. He has two. I also take issue with them disappearing into the private room reserved for nursing mothers to pump milk. There's a rumor that they have 3-way s-x in the office because they cant wait for after hours. I am personally offended that this occurs. I anonymously reported this to HR, but there was apparently no real investigation because Ms. Piggy doesn't want to know.

Yes and yes. I’m. It at a project this is in the Corp office. It’s sad.

Do not go to HR, you will be next on the layoff list. Best thing to do is move on.

I worked on a project where the lead's daughter worked on the project as an engineer. It was a joke and destroyed moral. The lead had no business being a lead in the first place. Then to have his daughter on the project as a engineer was really hard to watch.

The manager John should be held accountable for poor leadership skills. Get out of there, they will fail. Oh they already have. Nobody wants to do business with a company that does not know what they are doing!
