    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Reading, England

    I worked at Foster Wheeler full-time (more than 10 years)


    Varied opportunities. The technical capabilities of the staff are second to non. World class executions of project. Plenty of overseas opportunities.


    The salary may not be competitive with the likes of other companies nearby. But the work life balance certainly makes up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more competitive with salaries. Possibly follow the likes of other companies such to use the 9 day fortnight scheme.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
