    Pros

    -40 hr week 99% of the time.
    -Talented and proven performers are rewarded with very flexible work schedules. So long as you get your stuff done to a high level of quality, you can come and go as you please.
    -Creativity and innovation are supported by the management, so long as profit margin remains positive for the project.
    -Technical and management promotion tracks.
    -Excellent equipment and software.
    -Mix of short and long term projects from every part of the globe.
    -Office politics are minimal.
    -Travel and offshore work are officially "optional", but sometimes there is pressure to (but does come with extra compensation).
    -Good well trained management.

    Cons

    -Compensation is not as good as the major oil companies.
    -Official performance reviews are sporadic (every few years).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Ability to travel and learn about new sampling techniques / testing equipment. Given responsibility quickly allowing personnel to grow quickly in their job

    Cons

    Not much guidance or structure for most engineers. Upper management changes every few years, eliminating ability for the group to make an identity. Pay is notoriously low for similar positions in the industry. Low pay is consistent across the Fugro groups.

    Advice to Management

    Stability at Managing Director and providing structure from other managers would help build the company. Treating people like a asset instead of disposable would also be nice.
