I worked at Foster Wheeler

Pros

Foster Wheeler Civil Department has a tremendous group of people, a great department manager. For the most part employees seemed happy and very easy to work with. Do not get me wrong there are difficult people at Foster Wheeler, but they are the exception and not the rule.

Cons

Let me see.... you have a long walk from the parking garage to the bank of elevators that take you to you office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

After Troy Roder left it seems as if the Houston jobs left as well. I know there are a lot of proposals for new work that is not producing work the Houston office. Bring Troy back to Houston, please.

    I worked at Foster Wheeler

    Pros

    Moved to a beautiful "green" facility on the west side of Houston, very accessible by freeway. Did their best as far as keeping people active on projects and having something to charge to before the layoffs.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant here: hiring inexperienced friends at a higher salary while not bringing salary up to current market rates for more experienced and senior personnel (before the recession). Unfortunately, gossip and bringing personal problems to the work place have also had a negative impact on employee morale here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck to you in the Upstream Market. Improve and spend some money on a more updated and integrated EDMS system and other IT tools.

    I have been working at Foster Wheeler

    Pros

    Benefits, flex time, modern clean office building, large usefull well thought out workspace, every other weekend is a 3 day weekend with Friday off.

    Cons

    Having to spend 9 hours plus lunch everyday in the office in order to earn that every other Friday off. Absolutely bizzare design of the water faucets in the bathroom lavatories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We will survive the Obama administration. The economy will recover and we will be busy again. Keep up the good work and vote against politicians that hurt our business.
