        Amec, though they have acquired other companies have tried, sometimes unsuccessfully, but persistently to build a new identity for the company which integrates the cultures of all the companies they have acquired. If employees buy into the vision of Amec Foster Wheeler, they can build a very successful career. Amec is not unlike many other very large engineering consultancies, with the attendant red tape and bureaucracy, but you will not escape that if you want to build your career with a company of this size. Overall a great place to work.


        The IT department is Broken. Period. It is a mess, and they keep recycling old hardware that doesn't function correctly. Employees who are using substandard technology that hinders them in doing their day to day tasks may wait months before they get a new laptop and the new laptop might be not much better than the old one. New employees get recycled laptops or desktops and it is embarrassing to hire an employee and then make them wait weeks to get a computer. This one issue is a thorn in Amec's side and they will begin to lose people over it. It doesn't matter how good your corporate intentions are; if you can't even get basic technology right, your organization will suffer, and Amec FW is suffering now.

      Quality Assurance Associate

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??



      I just had a great interview with a tech company and was turned down because I am over qualified. Are there any tips or suggestions on getting better feed back after interviewing?
