Good experience at badly managed company

Senior Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Johannesburg (South Africa)

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

ProsVery good technical experience gained at the company.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
