    Former Employee - IT Support in Whiting, IN (US)

    I worked at Foster Wheeler as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Support Foster Wheeler Field Office Worker’s, Supervisors and Engineers at the BP Refinery Modernization Construction Site in Whiting, Indiana, the largest on-going construction project in North America in a dual role, were I monitored and maintained company’s computer network resources and Avaya and Shortel phone systems on the client side, connecting to their Corporate Headquarters in Houston as a Network Systems Integrator and Desktop Analyst resolving end-user hardware, software, network and communication problems. I provided end-user training where required. I also perform Instrumentation support of Project Manager for the I&E group, . Provide Cabling, to IT Closets, set up racks, routers; switches patch cables, fiber and power. Work with I&E Group configuring and testing Vicon CCTV, PTZ and Infrared cameras that will be installed, also Installed and configured EATON control cards using proprietary interface software CH-Studio to connect to SCADA for MCC units and buckets, Used Rotork IQ-INSIGHT to gather initial settings of MOV’s (motor operated valves) via infrared dongle data collection to re-calibrate to desired specs..It was a very educating experience,working with the leaders in today engineering technologies. I have grown immensely from this opportunity.

    Cons

    Some of the projects require a total commitment of time as construction phases carry on in 12 hour shifts 6 days a week , as an IT person you are required to be on board with keeping all data and voice networks up and running for the viewing and corrections of all engineering design work. hourly wage starts out low at 50k depending on what position you are hired for. What your hired for does not mean there won't be additional work load brought upon you to meet job completion.."all hands on deck is there motto"...a truly team effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You management practice have paid off well, for me at least, I suggest you keep on your format of letting your subordinates no what a good job you feel they have accomplished and the awards you pass out is a stellar idea as well.
