Pros: a paycheck
Cons: upper management, poor safety concerns, scheduled was based day by day
This review is based strictly on a project in Indiantown, FL and does not necessarily mean the company as a whole is like this. The upper management team was not well educated on how a job is supposed to be ran nor were they educated on pipe installation, fabrication or functions. They do not believe their employees should have a voice and they will dismiss you if you have a concern. In every other company I have worked for, safety was considered #1 and followed up by quality and the production, this project management team believes in the complete opposite and safety is hardly regarded as important. Many employees, including myself were asked several times to perform tasks unsafely and many tasks were not properly planned out. This project did not believe in craft employees and had both riggers and iron workers fitting high pressure pipe lines, many spools were fabricated incorrectly and crooked, the management team would shrug their shoulders and have it installed improperly. When it comes to scheduling, I wouldn't plan on knowing when you are working from one day to the next, we would work 8hrs one day, 12hrs the next, then work two days of 10hrs and then another 8hr shift. One week we would work 50hrs, next week work 40hrs, and then one week work 60hrs, only to go back to 40hrs again. This entire job was in complete chaos and I only hope that FPL looks further into Foster Wheelers practices at their plant site and makes changes. I do not recommend this project to anyone who takes pride in their work ethic and who values their safety.
