not a very good place to work
Welder and Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Elmore City, OKJuly 14, 2018
forum is not a very good place to work. they are very unorganized. the leadership is of poor quality. they do not keep the tools needed to do the job. you spend about one forth to one third of your time looking for the tools needed for the job. they keep the shop too crowded with jobs to be very safe.

Good place to work
Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 9, 2018
Forum is a good place to work. Unfortunately, it isn't a place where you get promoted and rewarded. I feel like they try and keep you where you are at and hire from outside. Management could work on leadership skills.
Pros
Quiet and nice office in Houston
Cons
Promotions and growth

Poor review
IT Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX 77024July 8, 2018
I really enjoyed the work I did at Forum. The direction of the leadership was very poor. There was a lot of backstabbing and jocking for power more than getting the work done. To much drama

Absolutely one of the best companies I've ever worked with
Inside Sales / Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Stafford, TXJuly 3, 2018
Daily working closely with everyone from Engineering, Production, Planning, Supply Chain, The Expediters, the Warehouse team, Shipping/Receiving, Accounting as well as my sales team. Receiving and responding to inquiries, setting up new accounts and growing those accounts by establishing good customer rapport trough excellent customer service. Processing orders and resolving any issues that may come up in a timely manner. Communicating with the sales team to ensure no duplicate quotes or orders were occurring. It was very much like a family environment.

This is a training facility
TIG Welder/Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Clearfield, PAJune 27, 2018
Pay increases are next to none, new hires make same as people who have been here for well over a year,and are very good at what they do. No sick time, just paid time off(15) days. Not a company would want to work a long time for. They do not care about you. Dont care how hard you work or how good your work maybe.
Cons
No Incentive to work hard or push yourself

Wouldn't recommend anybody to this job or this company!!
Assembler Technician 2 / structural welder (Former Employee) –  Elmore City, OKJune 10, 2018
One of the worst companies ever work for unorganized management and everything else is poor. No raises no bonuses. They just rush rush rush they don't care about anything else if you get hurt they try to cover it up so they won't lose how many days have gone without getting injury.

I enjoyed working for Forum Technologies because it was fast paced, I enjoyed learning all I could from my manager and co-workers. Enjoyed the different ethinic group of people and learning about their cultures. The management was wonderful and easy to work with, learned several computer programs, was challenging due to high phone calls, enjoyed all the people I worked with.

Great work especially if single
Field Service Tech III-Mobile Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Davis, OKApril 2, 2018
All the hours you can take and once your in, your pretty much in all the way. Paid travel and food. 30+ hrs overtime on hitches. 1 week off a month average. Unless you just wanna stay out. Great way to stack a lot of money quickly and if it’s for you, it’s definitely career stuff.
Pros
All the hrs you want
Cons
Lack of time home

Would not recommend this job to anyone
Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Stafford, TXFebruary 14, 2018
The culture on a daily basis is poor management. Make you feel fear of loosing your job everyday. So your afraid to speak up on the thing that are clearly wrong. No one will speak up because they will find a way to fire you. Either they like you or not and there is no advance ment or raises. you will stay where they hire you in as.

Enjoyed my tenure with Forum. Would have never left if I was not laid off. The day I was laid off was a terrible day but I knew the Oil and Gas Industry was struggling.
