No opinion of CEO

Pros

Engineering consulting is a good career in general, and AMEC is one of the main EPC's in the field. With an AMEC background you can go on to work for an oil or pipeline company.

Cons

Some employees seem unhappy, but then again some people always think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

EPC's tend to overstaff durign a boom and layoff during a bust, but this is bad for company morale and makes personal planning hard. By better considering how to staff up during a boom, cyclical layoffs might be averted.

Advice to Management

Don't overstaff during a boom so you have to layoff during a bust.

    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    La empresa es grande y organizada, por lo que es ideal para desarrollar una carrera profesional. Muchas actividades enfocadas en los recursos humanos. Se puede alcanzar muy buen sueldo.

    Cons

    Los empleados que trabajan en Amec se ven afectados fuertemente por la baja global de los precios de los commodities, por lo que la fuente de trabajo no es estable. Pero si hay que agregar que cuando los tiempos son buenos, la empresa paga muy bien.
