Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Working as a team to perform a high quality product for our clients. We always helped each other to qualify for a better understanding of presentation to construction management..

Cons

New management not having the values of older management that originally brought the company to international recognition.

Advice to Management

Bottoms up management works great when dealing with field construction people.
Everything must be clear in presenting engineering drawings that have integrity.

    Pros

    People were generally nice and there was flexibility to work at home.

    Cons

    The company is a conglomeration of acquired companies and you never quite feel like there's a sense of unity. Seems to be more of a focus on acquisitions for the sake of growth and no attention to ensuring their existing employee population is happy and taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose focus of the employees you currently have.
