Company Culture

They continue to fire the production people and then bring them back as contractors so they don't have to pay them benefits.

Support from management

None.

Teamwork

The people and departments work together well but it's likely out of fear of being fired.

Freedom to work independently

Not anymore.

Internal Communication

Blindside their best people with layoffs.

Gender Equality

Lots of women probably because they know they can get away with paying them less.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Have run out most of the long time employees.

Career Development

Not really applicable since the majority of the workers are temporary.

Overall compensation for your work

Close to average for the few full-time workers left. Most haven't had raises in years.

Office / Work Environment

Everyone lives in fear of the next round of layoffs.

Environmental Friendliness

No better or worse than anyplace else.

Work-Life Balance

You have no life except their life.

Company Image

There was a time before Fugro when the company had a decent reputation in the industry. Those days are gone.

Job Security

Absolutely none.

Handicapped Accessibility

Only okay.

Workplace Safety

Average.

Challenging Work

In my experience it was, but I got laid off almost 10 years ago.

Inclusive / Diverse

Mostly white with some Asians. Have a token black VP.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find a new owner.

What I like about the company

That I no longer work there.

What I dislike about the company

Everything, now.

Company Culture

Whatever trendy new trend is out there, they'll try but they never stick with one long enough to find out if it might actually work.

Support from management

Micro managers.

Teamwork

The production teams did whatever was necessary to get the job done.

Freedom to work independently

With the previous owner, yes. Not now.

Internal Communication

Top down and only what they think the employees will buy. They don't.

Gender Equality

Women are valuable here because they generally can be paid less.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Have mostly young cheap employees that leave after a year or two.

Career Development

Hire people for the big project then lay them off when it's over and if needed, might bring some back as temps.

Overall compensation for your work

Average for the industry.

Office / Work Environment

Typical cube farm, nothing special. The equipment is just good enough to get the job done without too many problems.

Environmental Friendliness

Below my pay grade to assess.

Work-Life Balance

Average.

Company Image

Most stay for no longer than two years and are constantly looking for something better. Layoffs are a constant threat.

Job Security

Absolutely nonexistent.

Handicapped Accessibility

Below average and simply don't hire the disabled.

Workplace Safety

Minimal but about average.

Challenging Work

There was a time when only the best would do. Now, they just slop out the work for the billing.

Inclusive / Diverse

Management ideas and opinions are the only ones considered.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They paid no attention when I was there and it won't help now.

What I like about the company

The original owner.

What I dislike about the company

Absolutely no loyalty to their employees.
