The Babcock & Wilcox Co. Employee
in Barberton, OH

"B&W has gone through many transitions over the years and deserves credit for continuing to find ways to survive. With the stock price down to $.21/share from $40/share, it is a sentiment to the hard work of many people despite a few very poor decisions by previous nuclear management."

Field Service Engineer
in Atlanta, GA

"I've enjoyed my time spent with Babcock & Wilcox as a field service engineer. This position has allowed me the opportune to experience many different facets of mechanical engineering such as R&D, design, capital project and technical sales. The life style of a field service engineer consists of much of the time away from home which is the only drawback from the work. Due to transitions in my personal life, I feel it is best for me to move careers into a position without as much of the travel."
