I have been working at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I really enjoy the type of work and the variety. Most times, you do not have time to be bored on a single project before moving on to the next.

Cons

The management does not have a vested interest in their staff. Rather than trying to retain quality employees, they seem to be willing to let employees leave under the assumption that they are always replaceable. There is also little to no mentoring available to junior staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more mindful that your employees are your company's future and help them develop their careers.
