I have been working at L. B. Foster full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

L.B. Foster offers full health benefits, work clothes with laundry service, comfortable work hours, and advancement opportunities.

Cons

Not for someone who can't lift a sledge a few dozen times a day, or stay focused and be aware of various moving equipment and work.

Advice to Management

The amount and quality of a product determines customer satisfaction. A suitable work pace needs to be addressed to ensure the safety of the employees, and the quality of the product. Also, I believe the employees that work in production and q.c. work hard for their dollar. A raise in wages would benefit in many ways.

    I have been working at L. B. Foster full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Machines they make are pretty great.
    Nice to see designs you created being built on shop floor.

    Cons

    I felt that I was spread too wide, no opportunities to specialise and become more efficient.
    A bit chaotic, not very good systems in place.

    Advice to Management

    Get some stricter systems in place, to ensure that problems with designs are discovered earlier.
