Pays Well but Unorganized workplace
Buyer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TX16 April 2018
McDermott pays well but the workplace is unorganized. They have no real process and procedures set in place, nor do they have a clear definition of job responsibilities. You are expected to wear many hats which makes your work day frustrating because you are pulled in so many different directions.

A company with diverse culture and good work environment
Principal Accounting Administrator (Current Employee) –  Jebel Ali Freezone21 March 2018
In my 2+ years of experience with the company, I have learned how to work and cope up in a multi culture work environment.

The work experience in the company has made me understand and apply my academic knowledge and implement it where necessary.

The company and my team has guided me in the area of weakness and provided suggestions where improvements can be made personally and in work as well.

Terrible Culture
Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX7 March 2018
This company has serious problems from the top down. Senior Management is very aloof and removed and not in tune at all with employees. There is a negative and bullying culture and very poor leadership in many departments. It is disorganized and too lean. Priorities are unclear and constantly changing. They do not know what they want. With its upcoming merger with troubled CB&I, these things are very likely to only get worse.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Negative, Bullying Culture and Poor Leadership

Had a Job sanctification for the Salary I was paid and with the working atmospher
Sr. Electrical Designer (Former Employee) –  Dubai, U.A.E11 January 2018
One thing I learnt from the past experience is that we should not slog for the company.

My way of working is to come on time and do your best in the allotted time. Try to do your job right in the beginning it self.

Over time should not be encouraged.

The most enjoyable part in the company is when you finish the Project on time and with good profit.

Tough times in the companies are when the project is coated with less hours and task to finish it.
