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

    Pros

    If you're a hard working individual who likes to be challenged Amec Foster Wheeler is the place for you. They offer great office and team environments that will help you grow as a professional and excel in your field. If given the opportunity I would take a job with Amec.

    Cons

    -There seems to be a lack of communication between managers and employees. The managers seem to want us (the employee) to know exactly how they (the managers) want things done.
    -For the amount o f work we put in, we were relatively low paid. 50/60 hour weeks while our managers left early is never a good scenario.
    -There is a total lack of communication between management and employees. If something is wrong, tell your employee. Do not leave them hanging until they ultimately fail.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate!
    Show your team what you expect from them. Giving us broad descriptions of what you want leaves us confused, and will cause delays down the road.
    Again...communicate.
