Pros

Fugro itself is a great company. Everyone that works there is very easy to get along with. Real good medical, dental, and vision insurance. Fugro's 401K plan matches you up three percent and matches half up to 6%. Can be an exciting job working offshore sometimes. Loyal to their employees. Pay is good

Cons

It is hard to make plans because your schedule is never set.
Involves a lot of driving.
Away from home a lot for several weeks at a time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A set rotation schedule would be nice and little more money never hurts.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for...if you don't mind waiting forever for a promotion or to get paid competitively!
    Co-workers are top notch people...Family atmosphere
    Big Corporation…resources to do job the right way.
    Very easy going company.
    Training and education opportunities are good...depending on your manager.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive!
    Those who do the work are often the ones that are under paid.
    Mid-level managers don't have the stroke they should or the gall to get top-performing employees the pay they deserve.
    Management often turns their head to known problems (i.e., Incompetency of some managers and workers).
    Those who screw up don't receive consequences. In fact, it's an ongoing joke in the company that you have to screw up majorly to get promoted!
    Cost of living/"Merit" raises are often given across the board. Those who actually put out have to share the pie with those who are costing through life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to assess the talent in your organization. Be more aware of who does the work and keeps departments running and who doesn't. There are quite a few people in the organization that do not perform up to par (quite a few are managers). These under-performing managers merely let those trying to make something of their self do all the work and they sit back and coast to retirement. It's time to get rid of the "good ole boy" mentality and cut the dead weight! Those who perform should be recognized and paid accordingly. Otherwise your top-performers will become "disengaged" (as I have) and look for advancement opportunities elsewhere (which I'm currently doing). Fugro Chance is a great company to work for but that doesn't put food on the table and clothes on the back. I have to say, I'll be sad to leave the company after devoting 10+ years of service. It's unfortunate that management doesn't take the opportunity to do the right thing even after the problem was brought to their attention 2 years prior.
