I worked at Foster Wheeler

Pros

The common comment was: It used to be a great company; today it has good ergonomics and offices.

Cons

It is confirmed. Having several conversations with employees at other divisions of the company I received the same comments. Secretaries rule over managers to the point that managers are fired and secretaries stay, the rest is up to your imagination, so on this perspective you can figure out what is the rest of the company. I speak for the Houston operation only, no clue of other offices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to what are you doing with Sr. Management and the empowered ladies. Some of the long term managers have to much concentrated power that will eventually ruing the company.

    Way too much gossiping and managemnet listening to opne side of the story only. Vert top down approach of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More senior managemnt efforts should be expended in staff morale boosing and development. More external courses should be approved by management.
