Prasad, Project Manager
Background
I earned a Bachelor of Engineering-Production from Mumbai University, India, and completed the Post Graduate program in Construction Management at the National Institute of Construction Management in Pune, India.

My multifaceted and multidiscipline expertise has developed while working in Project Marketing, Proposals, Project Execution, Fabrication and Construction management over the past 16 years, with 13 of those years in offshore oil and gas projects.

I joined McDermott for its reputation as a contractor of turnkey EPCI offshore oil and gas construction projects worldwide and because I believed it offered me greater knowledge and career growth. From working relationships with McDermott while at my previous employer, I noted it being professional in its dealings and overall approach. My opinion of McDermott being extremely safety conscious and ethical were confirmed after I joined the company.

Highlights
I like McDermott's working culture being firmly based on its values and its high regard for safety, ethics, quality and productivity, but without limiting employees' ability to achieve growth and success for themselves and the company. Also, I like the ever-changing nature of the work and systems here, aimed with continuous improvement in all.

For me, my whole tenure of working at McDermott has been an exciting journey including the current project I am working on. It's been a constant challenge, as one the first to be executed at Jebel Ali using the project-centric approach. As Senior Operations Engineer-Fabrication, I am involved in most of the interfaces including planning, engineering, procurement and construction and have seen many challenges overcome by the project team with ease. This has offered me a true sense of satisfaction, tremendous knowledge and high confidence.

Advice
My advice is to hone your skills in the basic planning and scheduling intricacies of projects by working backwards and being delivery focused. It's also important to keep informed about timely arrangement of the necessary engineering and material resources, and managing construction works within budgets and schedules.
