    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time

    Pros

    Pay is alright. Culture is less malevolent than other engineering consulting companies like Jacobs Engineering. Very similar to Parsons Engineering.

    Cons

    As with any engineering consulting company, you need to be an engineer. If you're in a supporting profession, no matter what it is, you are second class with no chance of advancement.

    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Junior/field staff make the most money for the business, stop ignoring them.
