Not a good place to work at

Engineer - Environmental (Current Employee)

ProsGood experience if you are young, you will get lots of work thrown at you early, albeit with minimum to zero instruction. So many young engineers work for FST for a few years, get some experience and their P.E., then move on to a company with much better pay and career opportunities.

ConsVirtually no mentorship from the senior staff. No reviews. Career development is a word that does not exist in their vocabulary.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is no longer 1950. People move to better companies when working conditions are not good and younger engineers want to balance hard work with life. It is done successfully at other firms.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
