    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFB International is a very diversified environment, from office work, project management to construction, building material to interior & exterior design and in between.
    you will definitely find what you are best with or even better, what you really like to be doing as a career.

    ConsIt is a fast moving environment, you will have enough time to learn, but be ready to perform.

    Embarrassed and humiliated US Citizen working in a sweat-shop

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWonderful hard working employees eager to please upper management

    ConsUpper Management feedback is hostile and abusive. The average tenure is less than a year. NO training, NO Policies & Procedures, NO HR Department, NO Legal Department, NO benefits, NO perks, NO vacation during 1st year, NO yearly reviews, No raises, NO appreciation, NO recognition, NO mistakes allowed - deductions from paychecks is a usual tactic. Traveling staff does not stay in same quality hotels as Upper Management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees. Value and respect your employees. Stop bullying employees, this type of behavior is not acceptable, bullying undermines self-confidence by causing confusion and embarrassment.

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

    Please don't make the mistake I did and take a job here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMy coworkers are wonderful, diverse, kind and fun. I have never worked with nicer people. Even when the company did nothing - and I mean absolutely nothing - to celebrate Christmas, my fellow employees put together a potluck lunch so we would have something together.

    ConsThis week, they fired an architect who had worked there for over two years because he wanted to go on vacation. The first year you get no vacation - but they don't tell you this until after you start. You also don't get health care until after several months - but they won't tell you that, either. Everyone is running scared and is afraid of management. There is no happiness, lots of fear - everyone is in the same boat and running scared. Please don't make the same same mistake I did. Believe me - I regret it every hour of every day and wouldn't wish the same on anyone else.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease care more about your employees They work hard for you and are caring and competent

    Abusive Company- I wonder why it is still in its business

    Project Coordinator (Current Employee) Oakland, NJ

    Pros98% of the employees are foreigners so it can be culturally interesting

    ConsFB International is a highly abusive workplace. Also known for being a 'visa factory' for the high amount of foreigners employed,the turnover of employees speaks by itself. People on visa or Green Card sponsored by the company are considered as slaves with little/no rights and zero benefits. Psychological abuse, extremely low salary, zero benefits,lack of rewards and respect from the upper management make this place a very unhealthy reality where to work. People work in constant terror to make mistakes and are punished with public psychological abuse and cuts on the salary for the tiniest mistake. Upper management has no respect for the employees. NOBODY in the company has a contract and there are no written rules to facilitate the employee's job. Internal company rules are made up according to the upper management's mood and are applied differently within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
