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

Pros

The company takes care of its people and provides trainings for potential growth. They are big in trainings which, sadly, employees rarely take. There are opportunities to transfer to other regional offices. Pay is good dependent on location.

Cons

The company is huge and keeps hiring newbies who are either very, very good or very, very inept. The hiring procedures are in place but rarely used. At times, it's the manager's 'gut feel' which, most of the time, is wrong. Turnover in recent months is high.

Advice to Management

Instead of hiring outside people, look from within. There are in-house people more capable for the job rather than spending a fortune scouting people from outside.
