I worked at Foster Wheeler

Pros

nice bldg. and good location. Flex time Great. Catered lunches you can buy and a lounge was build.

Cons

a mens world there. some managers have never been managers and are promoted to rapidly into positions. Hard to get kudo's

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To much mgmt. turnover. PM's need to be more involved on Projects and keep employees that are able & willing to communicate with Clients. The procurement dept. needs a make-over (no personality)

    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.
