Foster Wheeler was like family ... would work there again.

I worked at Foster Wheeler

ProsFoster 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementAfter 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
