I have been working at Foster Wheeler full-time (Less than a year)
Salary is decently competitive and their 401k matching is comparable to a state worker's TRS. 9/hour workdays with every other Friday off
To really know FW requires knowing the history from various other workers. Many workers are fairly new due to turnover and the boom and bust of unstable business due to projects. Management seems to care most about upstream divisions, but has poor attention and does not assist in departments outside of engineering. The guidance from the corporate HQ office is poor and there is a severe lack of operational maturity. FW loses business to competition due to poor planning and effective monitoring of operations. Various departments outside of engineering have many high-level managers and directors with poor and lazy attitudes. Many of them are just not used to having to be competent at their professions like FW's competition. Had I known the entire history and been able to interview with others outside the department hiring manager; I would've never come here.
Advice to Management
Implement TCO mentality from top down and provide global guidance to offices in a singular effort. What good is upstream without staff to properly support them?
