    I worked at Fugro full-time

    Pros

    Truly global experience. Good opportunities for career development. Opportunity to work on some of the coolest projects.

    Cons

    Upper management is scattered in approach. Local offices do not get connected with company strategy. Sometimes, it is not even clear if the central management has a clear strategy that it can communicate to worldwide offices. Infighting among various operating companies is common.

    I have been working at Fugro as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people and good system, work is not so difficult, salary is not high but not bad,

    Cons

    Career path and training is not mandatory, for offshore workers a lot of days spend it offshore, salary matrix is not connected to the global market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rise the salaries, compared with the market.

    Pros

    Good environment and good people to work with. Work and feel like a small company in a very large organization.

    Cons

    Technology lagging competition. Very weak IT that led to much of the staff's frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set goals and direction, delegate and hold people accountable for delivering result.

    Former Employee - Technical Sales Representative in Houston, TX

    I worked at Fugro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of small operating companies responsible for their own P&L under one large umbrella company. It is like working for a small company with a big company name behind it.

    Cons

    Lots of small operating companies responsible for their own P&L under one large umbrella company. As a new employee of one "op co" it is very difficult to understand what the other "op co's
    are doing, with whom, how, when and why. Very poor cross op cos communications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the communications to give everyone a broader view of the umbrella organization.
    Allow less senior and newer employees an opportunity to cross over and learn about each other.

    A solid, conservative company that focuses on service and profitability, with many opportunities for career development.

    I have been working at Fugro

    Pros

    Fianncially stable; fair compensation; reasonable benfits; great people; good training programs; online training website; feedback requested annually; succesful company year after year.

    Cons

    vertical communication issues; inter-office communication issues; regional communication issues; very conservative; slow to respond to market changes, although this may be due to the sheer size of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The present communication programs, performance programs and the multitidue of communication enhancement programs need to be enacted more quickly. The conservative approach while financially successful may inhibit the attraction of new young professionals to the organization.
