    • Brucie, I've always wondered............

      Is a disgruntled ex-employee one who has lost gruntles?

      Gosh, it's almost like you, Brucie. You lost the two brain cells you once had, so now you're a complete moron.

      Mr. Brucie "tycoonguy" Swift, you are a total dipsweed. Which is why your neighbors call you "dipshit" and your mom calls you "Idiot Swift."

    • I am an ex-employee, but I'm no longer disgruntled.

      As one of the previous posts said, those of you that think the employees of this place had anything to do with its downfall, don't know what you're talking about. And, it was a nice place to work. They DID always seem to come up with the big job when things were getting slow. I guess you could consider them as being one of the "old fashioned" companies that srill cared about their employees. Dick Swift brought an end to that. Since the weather is getting warmer, he'll be golfing with his new PSE&G buddies.

        Add some disgruntled retirees to that package now that our SIP is gone (the bulwark against living with the kids, I thought) and our medical has gone through the roof, just when we need it most. I wish those who are suffering with unemployment at least had some of the benefits we have, like Social Security, to lean on, but we still hurt in our own way. If you had received what they sent us to close the SIP and had to pay much more in taxes plus a penalty for "not estimating properly" since they dumped it at the end of 2003 and it cannot be spread since it was not a "qualified" plan (little did we know), you would have some bitterness in your heart too. Oh I did love working there and am crushed to see what has happened. It wasn't the fault of the working stiffs; they were the guys in the white hats. It's the fat cats who took and took and took the trips and the perks and never looked back when they pillaged what was once a great company. I feel better now; thanks for listening.

    • I would say more a long-long term disgruntled stockholder, who's value has gone the big crap hole.

      And I do firmly believe my dead dog would have done better. He would have done nothing but at least it would have cost nothing.

    • I would say many, many people fit the description of disgruntled ex-employee. What was a major U.S. presence in refining and power, and was really a great place to work was stripped clean by Dick Swift and pared to nothing by Ray Miklovich. A lot of good engineers were let go while a bundle of cash was spent on consultants. Its a shame that most of us couldn't finish our careers at Perryville. While this was never a business where job stability was common, Foster Wheeler did seem to always come up with that big project when things looked like they were starting to slow. Anyone who blames the employees for the fall of FW doesn't know anything about the engineering business.

    • The hallway's in Perryville must be trully interesting places these days. Any digruntled current employee's?
