Overall, a C-. His floor pitch is a little extreme and he has a few tiles that he could have spent more time on. I think the worse part is his grouting. He needs improvement there. Going by the book, the corners should have been caulked. In my opinion, it's not bad enough to rip out but he could fill the holes in the grout. From my experience, he either doesn't have the ability to do better work or he's in too much of a hurry.

If the Schluter pan dips like that then he did it right, I guess. But I don't know how extreme the pitch is on those offset Schluter pans.

The light above is making the lippage look even worse.

I think I'm with Davy. If the pan is normal, I'd give it a solid C.

First of all, I don't know what area you're in, MCOL doesn't help me. I can't say what that shower should cost you. Prices vary.

I would have tried to center the drain in the shower. It can be done although sometimes it can be a pain and take extra work. Looks like you have about 1 1/4 inches between the level and the drain so I can see the drain having extra pitch on the end that's close to the wall. I just don't like the steep funnel shape at the drain. The size of the shower comes into play. When it's this extreme, I will usually run the perimeter out of level a little to avoid such a pitch. But that's something I rarely do. You say he used a Kerdi foam tray. If that's the way they are sloped then maybe he didn't have any choice on the pitch. I've never used a foam tray so I have no idea if they can be altered.
