Doosan Babcock is keen to give you responsibility and ownership not only of your work but also your development

Project Engineer (Former Employee)
Nottingham, England (UK)

I worked at Doosan Babcock full-time for more than a year

ProsMy time with the company has been very enjoyable so far. Not only have I been challenged and given responsibility I have also experienced environment which is friendly, supportive and encouraging, helping unlock my full potential.Since I joined the company, I have had the opportunity to work on major UK projects like Sellafield and Drax, had the chance to undertake site work overseas in countries like France and Brazil, as well as doing design work on power plants in Canada and Hong Kong to name a few. I have gained a very high quality experience which contributes greatly towards my IStructE chartership.

ConsThe locations aren't the most exciting of places. The work requires you to move between offices which could be in sellafield, quayside newcastle and nottingham.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis undoubtedly varies from office to office, but for me, the follow-up on job leads and clients seems lacking: feedback has been sporadic and has required a lot of calling and leaving messages to get an answer one way or the other.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worked hard, enjoyed my time, made my contributions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Doosan Babcock

Pros- Good place for learning
- new to EPC field so plenty of exposure
- compensation is at par or slightly above the market

Cons- decision making is not delegated
- clarity in thought and action is missing
- communication is one way - only up

Advice to Senior Management- Delegate - other people also have the company`s best interests at heart.
- Learn the concept of self-respect of a person
