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.

welder (Former Employee) –  Clearfield, PAFebruary 26, 2016
The clearfield plant used to be a plant run by marathon. If you didn't work at marathon there was absolutely no chance for a promotion. That's all thanks to their worthless production manager. Any idea you had to increase production was always credited to someone else. The favoritism in the clearfield plant is sickening. When things got slow if you didn't work at marathon you could pack your toolbox. Didn't matter what you knew or how hard you worked. The way that place is being run it won't exist in a year. AVOID THIS PLACE IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR YOU! !
Pros
great employees
Cons
Upper management is worthless

QUALITY ASSURANCE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Broussard, LAJanuary 29, 2016
I enjoyed working at Forum for many reasons. I was able to learn multiple tasks and was trusted to do them without much supervision. Workers outside of the department I worked in were always eager to assist us in anything we needed. The quality department worked very well as a team and that made each day enjoyable.

Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 21, 2016
A typical work day is filled with lots of projects that are due either now or in the future, there are a lot of challenges that you face on a daily basis. I've learned how to manage my time by handling multiple projects at once and mutli-tasking. My co-workers were very easy to work with when I needed help with difficult tasks, I knew that I could count on my fellow peers to help me out. My most hardest & enjoyable part was working with various customer all over the world and ones that are in the states, the timezones could get a little fustrating but I always knew that I had to work way ahead of the schedule.
Pros
Very relaxed company
Cons
Opportunites for advancement were not offered.

Senior Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 4, 2015
Forum is a combination of 47 small companies that came together in 2012 to form Forum Energy Technologies. Consolidating these companies is challenging task which takes time. Management is more focused on cutting cost and do not have a long term growth plan.
