Very productive work place , but the bad part is trying to move up in the company

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
L.B Foster is a great work place , really productive and fast paced and great coworkers. Only problem with working there is you don't really have the option to move up in the company. There is some guys that have been there for 8 years an their still titled as a laborer.

Pros

1 hr lunch, dental, healthcare, perduim

Lack of direction and safety culture

There seems to be a lack of safety culture here. There are lots of hazards that seem to go ignored. The employees see this and they show up to work merely to collect a check. Most of the workers see this as a temp job and not as a career.

Pros

They try and pay well

Cons

Revolving door

A job not for everyone.

I've been employed at LB Foster for 27 years. I've seen both good and bad times. Overall it's good honest work, but it's not for everyone. Advancement is more of a buddy system and not whether you can do the job. As far as work environment goes, let's just say that moral could use a lot of improvement. Leadership is almost non existent. Simply put, we can do better we are better.

Employees are under valued

Management has little trust in employees. Culture is not open and friendly. Office equipment and environment are somewhat stale and old. Morale was typically low.

Executives- Senior VPs

They're worry about one thing. MONEY-they dont care about their workers below 'em. Whatever will advance their "shares" is all they're worried about! .

Productive workplace

Overall the job is fine, the workplace is enjoyable and co-workers/management are respectful. There is plenty of room for advancement if you work for it.

Big companies make everything less fun

Before LB Foster bought out the company the sense of community was present, after the corporate workers made strict rules and everyone seemed to always have to walk on eggshells.

Recommend for only retirees looking for extra cash

This job is definitely a job for individuals who are retired and need to get out the house to make extra money. If you are looking for a rewarding career I advise that you look elsewhere. Job hours and shifts tend to shift exponentially and often without a day’s notice. If you are single with no kids I recommend you work here.

Pros

Hours

Cons

Management & no career advancement

Desirable workplace with job security

LB Foster is a competitively paying, stable company that is large enough to provide advancement opportunities but small enough to allow employees to be aware of other business units and to make cross departmental acquaintances. LBF is definitely a company I can recommend to others as a solid work place.
