    Pros

    The travel opportunities to see the world are great. Being able to work unsupervised is a real plus too. If you work for Sales or Process you will be paid well and taken care of, you will get anything you need or want even if it is unwarranted.

    Cons

    The personalities at the top of the org chart makes one think of going postal. The flat-out lies by the CEO to the employees when he came on board should get him fired. The lack of respect given to the employees is a shamefull fact of working here. It did not used to be this way but with the managmeent that has come in here the last couple years it is a fact of life now.

    I have been working at Fuel Tech (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is very accommodating to employees. Travel is arranged around employee schedules. The work environment is nice, the office is modern and kept up well.

    Cons

    The rules only apply to a few. The management team does not have a good understanding of how the company is actually run. There are many within the organization who lean towards the dark side.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the expensive coffee brewing in your office. Fuel Tech was once a great organization that has taken a very wrong turn. The ones closet to the top may not have the best perspective.

    Pros

    For the most part, we are able to work with minimal supervision. If you need time off, it is never an issue so they are very flexible in that sense. Most of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Communication is horrible. The senior management is in their own little world and very disconnected with the workers. They are too busy back stabbing each other to pay attention to really doing their own jobs and helping the people who report to them. There is no direction from management and therefore no recognition when you go above and beyond. There is no thought to promoting from within. Most of the V.P. level and up need to be chopped and start over before this company will be able to be on a the right track which is apparent by our ever falling stock price. Too many cliques among management to be effective. It is very hard to get fired so incompetent people are all over. Newer employees (past 2 years or so) are overpaid and at the top of the list for the incompetent people! Funny, they all seem to be friends from previous jobs!

    Advice to Management

    Stop fighting with each other and focus on the company itself. There are a lot of very good people who will leave as soon as the economy improves if they don't get their act together!
