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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.
