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

    Pros

    Money (excellent starting package out of engineering)
    Excellent Benefits
    Work Life Balance
    35 Hour work week
    New office in 393 University Avenue and Downtown location
    Good place to develop basic consulting and project management skills

    Cons

    -Frugal
    -Senior Management are blind - all they can see are Ontario's 2 large nuclear operators. They cannot focus on other growth areas of the company.
    -No value for people with business skills and acumen. They leave engineers and scientists to do business and strategies, so a major issue in the long run.
    -Work is too technical. No high level impact.
    - Not integrated with other parts of AMEC. No easy flow of resources between different divisions. Also projects do not flow easily through different divisions of AMEC.
    - UNION. People like doing manual work, which can be easily done through software but the union prevents changes.
    - No value for talented people. No formal bonus structure. Very hard to break into mid-management unless you commit to remote location or get friendly with VPs.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Jim Rippon. You need a CEO not a COO. He is not a strategist, he only thinks about day to day operations. Also he focuses on the wrong things for cost cutting. Instead of creating more efficient employees, he focuses on taking up free coffees and christmas cards.
