      Poor Management & Culture

      Pros

      I can't think of any "Pros" to working for Amec, other than a good health plan (although it was pricey).

      Cons

      Where to begin? First of all, prior to 2018 the management in the Seattle area offices was minimal and insufficient. The small amount of guidance I received came from people who weren't my manager, but thought they were. The company culture is non-existent, and just about everyone there seems miserable with their jobs. Belittling employees on a "lower" level isn't uncommon with some PMs. This place is soul-sucking. I couldn't be happier to not work there anymore. Also, I was getting a very poor non-competitive salary. I regret ever accepting the job.

      Pros

      Worked on large projects, but was away from home alot. Many benefits and the project manager you worked with depended upon certain things like vacation and using PTO. Work was interesting. Per Diem was used while on site.

      Cons

      Moved from one project to another and didn't really have a chance to move up.

      Pros

      Our office had an amazing team dynamic. Loved my coworkers and immediate boss/manager.

      Cons

      Micromanaged by regional office at times, and they often seemed disconnected from the work we were actually doing. Never allowed to get project manager training though it was promised multiple times, most likely forgotten about.
