    I worked at Foth (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent group of people to work with, very professional. Engineers work together as a team to arrive at solutions. Family type atmosphere throughout the organization. Everyone knows their responsibility and does their best to get the job done.

    Cons

    No cons to think of, a very good company to work for. except that some of the engineers may have to travel a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with what you are doing, expanding the business with existing customers and the developing of new customer base. Continue to make Foth a company that employees want to work for.

    I worked at Foth full-time

    Pros

    Was employed at Foth over 17 years. Foth has many good people who have their niche expertise but this can lead to being stuck in current position for a long time..Foth has great flexibility, sustainability and member retention.

    Cons

    Foth is lacking teamwork and collaboration. No visible accountability. As long as you are billing hours no cares. Also lacking is constructive feedback. Lack of attention to detail and quality.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the team environment. Some people require a nurturing team environment where they can work with others towards a common goal.

    I worked at Foth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Foth has many good people who are experts in their respective fields. The company as a whole has a genuine concern for the well being of their employees and works to make sure they have fun in their jobs.

    Cons

    The Minneapolis office is lacking in teamwork and collaboration. Many employees have their niche expertise and are great at what they do, but they don't all work together as well as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the team aspect. While some people enjoy keeping to themselves, others require a nurturing team environment where they can work with others towards a common goal.

    I have been working at Foth full-time

    Pros

    Tries to carry employees during lean business times instead of laying employees off when work dries up but eventually it will happen.

    Cons

    Not family friendly, requires extended travel in most cases, no overtime pay for hours worked. Can get straight time for overtime under certain circumstances. Charges companies for your time but does not share it with employees. Difficult to move up and advance, end up being stuck in a rut..

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter, no one listens anyway.

    I have been working at Foth full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company love the culture and people. When the CEO says his priority is to invest in human capital you know you work for a company that puts its employees first. I am truly proud to be part of this organization. It has not been since my time in the military that I have felt such team work, camaraderie and professionalism. If you have the opportunity to work for Foth it is a chance of a lifetime.

    Cons

    As a growing company it is hard to get new high quality employees. With unemployment low the biggest challenge we have is not keeping great employees but rather adding new. However growth is a good problem to have. I sure would not want to have the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    We are definitely on the right track and I am onboard with the direction we have been provided by our leadership. I can't wait to see how good we will be in the future. We are in a good place.

    I have been working at Foth full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    After 9 years I still believe I have the best job in the company as Foth’s Recruiting Technical Advisor. I get to interact regularly with nearly every aspect of our organization, travel to many of our office locations and interact with our members on a regular basis. Foth is a work hard play hard type of company, I am glad they took a chance on a 22 year Air Force Veteran.

    Cons

    Because we are consultants and travel to our clients sites for project work our interview process, at times, is longer than candidates might expect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the targeted focus and growth plans for the next 75 years, remember to treat our members and clients with respect and keep true to our Core Values!
