    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Reading, England (UK)

    I worked at Foster Wheeler full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of talented people on projects.

    Cons

    Those talented people on projects always frustrated and dissatisfied. Corporate management very disconnect from project people and very bureaucratic. Lots of procedures and rules that don't quite work or make sense. Overhead management is about 10 layers, and you are lucky if you get to talk to your immediate line management once in several months; and you have no chance to ever get to meet and talk to managers beyond his level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear upper management: cut your numbers by half and make the company more competitive pn the market. Stop spending all your time in endless corporate meetings and get to know your projects and people who execute those projects. You keep losing talented people because they do not feel valued. Quite on the contrary, most professional, talented and free-spirited people in your company feel they are treated like schoolchildren who always need to be told and disciplined.

    I have been working at Foster Wheeler as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Complete database to execute any jobs within the industry and a very good platform to experience and learn.

    Cons

    Prefer contract employees and any extension is done at the very last days. May not sit well with many who like to continue working instead taking a break after a project.
