Draftsman (Former Employee) –  Chickasha, OKApril 17, 2017
The hardest part of the job was the lack of info to work to get the project done. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed. This was the first job that I ever had to where every drawing was done in 3d. I learneda lot on the job.

Lack of management direction
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 5, 2017
Forum was a good company to work for; however within the top management there were too many management changes. With all that movement; the direction of each department suffered as new leadership could not determine how to manage the subsequent departments.
Therefore the snowball effect of personnel frustration and lack of drive within the employees escalated to where there was a mass exodus of personnel within three months of management changes.

Painter/Laborer (Current Employee) –  Madison, KSJanuary 29, 2017
I am grateful for being employed...
Typical day is filling work orders and/or painting products.
I learn about the different types of valves, bodies, stem disc, etc.
It amazes me that for a small town environment that we send products all over the world.
Pros
Having a job

Communication skills need to improve

Productive work environment with flexible hours and great benefits
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Stafford, TXJune 3, 2016
I absolutely loved my job. Even though my official title was Accounting Clerk, I assisted in many other areas of the company, as I was one of the most tenured employees within the facility. The overall working environment was business casual with very little management supervision.
Pros
Flex hours with great benefits
Cons
Downsizing due to the current Oil & Gas market

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Broussard, LAApril 25, 2016
I got to learn how to use tools i have never used before. i enjoyed working with the people i worked with.The management always tried to help if there was a problem. The hardest part of the job was hours but even that it wasnt that bad. Most enjoyable thing was just the tasks i was given that was a challenge and the people i worked with was a real pleasure.

Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 16, 2016
Challenging work and the great people made the typical day fulfilling and enjoyable. There were exceptions, specifically with lower level management, but those issues while serious, were isolated.

Benefit package was very good, better than many of the larger companies. Company reimbursed many of the expenses for professional development and education.
Pros
Challenging work and good people overall made the typical day fulfilling and enjoyable.
Cons
Management was hesitant to resolve personal conflict creating a hostile workplace for some.
