I have been working at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
For the most part, my managers have been willing to work with me and help me grow in my career, which has been the biggest benefit to my employment. I think I am compensated fairy, but I am not sure (no other professional experience outside of my time here). My managers do not usually micromanage me, they allow me to make my own decisions for the most part and allow me to learn and try new things. If they feel I'm on an unproductive path, they will intervene. If I need support, I can go to them and I feel comfortable doing so.
Construction group still has a "smaller company" feel, but is making the steady march toward a large corporate environment. Some company goals seem to be too aggressive and without sufficient execution plans. Seems like in order to be more competitive, the company has decided to make compensations trimmer and trimmer, as well as bonuses. It's also seems like new employees hiring In at the same level as I, are compensated differently which is frustrating. "Career path" options are not clearly defined and communicated, Professional Development Review (PDR) system is poorly executed and not reinforced well enough. Bonuses are not consistent (with regard to frequency, or amount, system seems too subjective and subject to influences outside of your control, i.e. excellent performance is not a good metric or insurance for bonus likelihood here). Expense reporting system is poor and inconsistent for some parts of the company, expenses can take as little as 1 week and as much as 6-8 weeks to receive depending on the part of the organization you work in.
Advice to Management
Please remember how important it is to develop a relationship with your subordinates and have some understanding of their working style. It is absolutely critical to an employee's mental health and success to fee comfortable talking to their superior (in a professional manner) about their concerns, their goals, and their aspirations. It's equally important to follow through on whatever action you suggest or agree to. Don't make promises you can't keep, be as clear as possible on your intentions, I understand you may not always be able to divulge all of the information, but being cryptic or withholding information only breeds skepticism among your subordinates.

I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at Amec Foster Wheeler.
They called on phone to set up an in-person interview. Met the supervisor a few days later and chatted with her and filled out the official application. Was called about a week later to clarify some information (DL#). 2 weeks after that I was called and offered the job. I started 2 weeks later. So about 1 month for the whole process.
