I worked at Foster Wheeler full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

None that I can think of.

Cons

A company that works in low margin industries can't be generous to their employees. Terrible raises, delayed raises, 4 in 5 years, etc. Suggest working for a company that makes a lot of money. They can treat their employees better. This is a while back, put I doubt much has changed.

    I worked at Foster Wheeler

    Pros

    The common comment was: It used to be a great company; today it has good ergonomics and offices.

    Cons

    It is confirmed. Having several conversations with employees at other divisions of the company I received the same comments. Secretaries rule over managers to the point that managers are fired and secretaries stay, the rest is up to your imagination, so on this perspective you can figure out what is the rest of the company. I speak for the Houston operation only, no clue of other offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what are you doing with Sr. Management and the empowered ladies. Some of the long term managers have to much concentrated power that will eventually ruing the company.
