I worked at Foster Wheeler as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very good technical experience gained at the company.

Cons

Company stuck in old ways with no new inovations. Management reluctant to see that employees are unhappy. Midrand office located in a very unpleasant and unsafe location.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Engage with and listen to your people - you sell manhours. Without experienced professional employees, there is no business.
