    I worked at Amey full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good easy-going culture, work from home, wide presence all over UK and overseas. Serves clients of diverse nature, good working environment

    Cons

    Salary not competitive in comparison to the market, a bit too much focus on cost saving and profits. Service provider and not a consultant

    Advice to Management

    Fit4future is becoming too micro managerial and seems like a dictatorial approach. To save money, management should think about getting a 5% pay cut instead of losing 100 good people.
