Included traveling to power stations, having meetings with the clients and doing plant walk downs and reviewing schedules, working with people with in a diverse cultural work place was challenging but a good learning curve, management always expected the best and always pushed the teams to the max, the best part of the job was making sure that management and client were always satisfied with the services provided.

Working for Howden is the most exciting experience, it is a very dynamic environment with diverse culture. and offers a wide range of engineering products and services to the customers. The company structure makes it easy for reporting and encourages team work. The profit targets set for the company are usually quite steep which exerts a little bit of presure to the magement and then cascading down to the floor staff. The industrial exposure is broader you get to know or learn various products supplied by Howden which enhances a sense of creativity and innovation.
Pros

Safety meetings in the morning, then inspections and coaching sessions, The hardest part of the job was to repeat the same thing over and over on a daily basis.The most enjoyable part was to send people home everyday healthy and without any injuries

* I'm used in working under pressure and believe in being more competitive in productivity for the value of money I earn. * I learned to respect my job as my company. * The Management of the Company I worked for was too power in such a way that many employees were not impressed of it during and after end of contract. * The hardest part of the job is when we were forced to work overtime with no compensation. * The most enjoyable part of the job is when we receive compensation for the services we rendered.
Pros
There was nothing for nothing
Cons
We worked 10hrs and above per day that was not inline with labor relations act.
