Constant in-fighting, back-stabbing, butt-kissing, complaining, and general corporate politics.

Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsGood benefits, full tuition reimbursement.

ConsOne becomes an anonymous cog in a large wheel. There is no recognition or praise for a job well done. There are no bonuses in engineering.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall, Foster Wheeler is a great company to work at but great disparity between offices regarding management ability

    Discipline Manager (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Foster Wheeler


    Pros: The project design/engineering staff is well qualified, Some offices are well organized… Cons: Some office project management offices need a better understanding of project requirements and employee benefits.… Advice to Senior Management: Treat the employees with respect and meld family life into the office… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
