    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time

    Pros

    I was given many great opportunities to work across the wider business and this resulted in lots of personal development for me. People are really willing to help. I had a positive experience throughout my 8 years at the company which saw a great deal of organisational change.

    People working for longtime in some departments (>15-20 years ) have the tendancy not to do their jobs as they should and instead pass all to-do's to new ones..

    Please give the credits for the people who work really hard and get the job done instead of the old useless (not working) staff from your office. Make your performance evaluation sounding in a way that the really working people should merit their earnings.
