Run of the Charles
It is an exciting time to be at FST. The firm known for the incredibly long tenure of so many of its people is reimagining the way it operates as a business.
On the longevity front, FST continues to be a comfortable, inviting and rewarding place to work, as illustrated by the abundance of people who come and stay 30, 40, 50 or even 60 years (see the tribute to George Nelson to the right). Ask any FSTer and you're likely to find that they came to the firm out of college. Many stay until they retire. Some keep working here even after they retire.
This old-line engineering firm, respected by so many for its century of good work, is also on the move. Since 2013, FST has:
♦ Made two acquisitions of firms with services both similar to FST's and complementary to FST's
♦ Purchased a powerful new enterprise resource planning (ERP) program that will help transform our business functions
♦ Implemented a new internal communications program, including multiple video monitors running dynamic content in most offices
♦ Opened a 35-person satellite office in Quincy, Massachusetts, to accommodate its many South Shore employees as well as the bulk of new employees from the acquired Norfolk Ram Group
♦ Expanded its office in Hyannis on Cape Cod, doubling its size and adding four new full-time staff members
♦ Launched a new external website, which you are currently viewing
♦ Launched a new internal intranet, which you have to work at FST to view
♦ Launched a new comprehensive training program to help identify, mentor and nurture future leaders
♦ Developed a new five-year strategic plan to guide the company's mission, vision and growth
People like FST and FST likes its people. The work is interesting. The leadership has the firm's best interests always in mind. That's why it's a great place to work and that's why so many stay for so long.
