Competitive Work Place
Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Dubai29 September 2017
Competitive work place with growth purely dependent on your aptitude and hunger for responsibilities.

Good place to work
Research Services Assistant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DC6 September 2017
McDermott was a great place to work, with competitive salary and benefits. The work was challenging, but the atmosphere was conducive to good production and friendly interaction with coworkers. Unfortunately, due to lingering financial pressures from the economic collapse a few years earlier and technological advances in my field, I was released in 2013.

Sr. Admin Assistant (Current Employee) –  Jebel Ali Freezone26 July 2017
I have been working here for 11years. It has taught me a lot about health and safety, good working environment but it lacks in motivation, which at times demotivate me. There is nothing difficult in a job unless one takes it in a positive mind and learning from experienced people.
