It's a company supported by a culture of hardwork and lots of stress. No means of growth or advancement....depending on your role. You may end up leaving within a short space of time if you are unable to cope with stress

Everything one would expect from an engineering firm. Not good for creatives. a very structured system with no scope for variance. Still a great company to work for if you are logically inclined

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
Presence on End year functions
Cons
Flexible working hours

I have learned how to deal with a wide variety of customers, from the pleasant customer to the irritated. In every case, I assess their needs and how Howden Africacan address them most effectively. I have learned to be good at understanding the psyche of the customers and hence knowing when to identify opportunities to sell services to the customer. The majority of my customers have walked away feeling satisfied. More importantly, they have returned to do business with us again. so its a great place to work for
Pros
free lunches while i was at training centre
Cons
no long hours of work

the first day at work was so difficult . I didn't have any idea about the product. but now I can built the product from start to finish. with the help of our management it was easy to learn the product. my co-workers are so supportive and helpful with all the problems you can come across. the most enjoyable part of the job is when the inspector tells you that your job is excellent.
Pros
free tea time
Cons
long hours
