I worked at AMEC full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company takes care of its people and provides trainings for potential growth. They are big in trainings which, sadly, employees rarely take. There are opportunities to transfer to other regional offices. Pay is good dependent on location.

Cons

The company is huge and keeps hiring newbies who are either very, very good or very, very inept. The hiring procedures are in place but rarely used. At times, it's the manager's 'gut feel' which, most of the time, is wrong. Turnover in recent months is high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring outside people, look from within. There are in-house people more capable for the job rather than spending a fortune scouting people from outside.

    I have been working at AMEC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People are friendly; my experience of management is very positive; learning & development very good; work is varied and interesting; mobility within company is encouraged;

    Cons

    poor benefits if not senior management; "pass the buck" attitude of Nuclear project managers; far too many different and contradicting policies & procedures for different business units with distinct lacking guidance from an "invisible" HR department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PDR's are seen as a tick in the box exercise with not enough personal involvement.
