    A company going places

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHaving worked across the industry Amey are definately one of the best. It is a company that is investing, growing and making sense when a lot of other aren't. They also invest in their people, meaning there are lots of development opportunities regardless of what stage you are at in your career.

    ConsYou do travel a lot

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeams love it when you spend time out on their contracts

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unspectacular employer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Birmingham, England (UK)

    ProsReasonable job security, reasonable training opportunities

    ConsZero opportunity for career progression, pension matching only to 1%, relatively poor holiday allowance compared to the rest of the industry, penny pinching attitude, maximium 10% pay rise for moving between internal positions, promotion of poor quality people within the operations management side of the business, poor quality & poorly implemented in-house software.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay and benefits package needs to be matched to the rest of the industry below grade 'D' level to retain good people. In order for contracts to be run for the benefit of the company (and therefore stakeholders) they should be led by the commercial, performance and quality teams and not by the operations teams.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    eye opening and very educational.

    Senior Building Support Officer (Former Employee) Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)

    Prosbig company security, with a small company feel. they are a very professional company and I found them fun to work for

    Consthe staff on the contract I was on didn't have a clue what they where doing most off the time and basically winged it. they expected far too much from one person.

    Advice to Senior Managementensure by being hands on that your managers and account directors actually know what they are talking about and don't put profits before professionalism.

    No gym. restaurant, cafe or decent hotels

    Management (Current Employee) Oxford, England (UK)

    ProsGood people, average salary, big company so lot's of place to go (geographically and career wise)

    ConsGet a gym or at least off cheap gym membership for Oxford based staff, install a cafe or restaurant or get a deal with a local provider for cheaper food (Science Park food is expensive, Sainsbury a trip away). Sort your hotel policy out - everyone stays in rubbish budget hotels alongside tradesmen, teenagers and budget travellers.
