    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Burlington, MA
    Current Employee - Engineer in Burlington, MA

    Pros

    There are a lot of very intelligent people who work there. Many people are willing to teach and help others. Also, a very secure place to work, as they continue to win job after job because of their good reputation for producing quality.

    Cons

    Kind of slow to move up the ladder. Very small to no bonuses. Pay seems below average according to certain salary websites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more trust in junior level engineers. They are not simply drafters. They should be encouraged to provide their own input on projects.

  2.  

    Not a good place to work at

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Engineer - Environmental
    Current Employee - Engineer - Environmental

    Pros

    Good experience if you are young, you will get lots of work thrown at you early, albeit with minimum to zero instruction. So many young engineers work for FST for a few years, get some experience and their P.E., then move on to a company with much better pay and career opportunities.

    Cons

    Virtually no mentorship from the senior staff. No reviews. Career development is a word that does not exist in their vocabulary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is no longer 1950. People move to better companies when working conditions are not good and younger engineers want to balance hard work with life. It is done successfully at other firms.
