    I worked at McDermott full-time

    Pros

    Great team work environment... Excellent learning experience

    Cons

    No value for good employees... When it comes to reduction, they dont bother terminating a valuable asset anytime based on internal politics, relations of others etc... For them sadly a good employee is not an asset which is totally wrong... If u have strong contacts in the company u wont get laid off even if u r useless... And if u do not have great personal contacts and friendship with the decision makers, u will be laid off if required even if u are a very valuable asset to the COMPANY.
