Negative Outlook

I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very good technical experience gained at the company.

Cons

Company stuck in old ways with no new inovations. Management reluctant to see that employees are unhappy. Midrand office located in a very unpleasant and unsafe location.

Advice to Management

Engage with and listen to your people - you sell manhours. Without experienced professional employees, there is no business.

    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time

    Pros

    I really learned some important marketing strategies. Where to spend my time and energy.

    Cons

    Clerical staff never wanted to help. Always thought they were too good, I hear this has changed with their new Office Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Step in when you first become a problem. Foster a team environment over a usability environment.
