Pros

If you are single and are looking to experience living around the UK on a variety of projects then you might enjoy it.
They have won some big coontracts recently that shows they are good at bidding for work, but when they lose contracts you are given minimal assistance to seek alternative work.

Cons

They are very head office focussed. If you sit in Oxford you have more chance of getting promoted against others out in the regions who are better suited to the promotion.
They are not very confidential when sacking senior directors, I was told, by a low level employee who worked in head office, about two high profile directors who were getting sacked two weeks before it happened. The reason that none of this comes out is that they offer very nice packages for individuals to leave and sign away any employment rights.

Advice to Management

Look outside of Oxford for your potential leaders and don't sit up on the top floor of the Sherard not listening.

    I worked at Amey full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good easy-going culture, work from home, wide presence all over UK and overseas. Serves clients of diverse nature, good working environment

    Cons

    Salary not competitive in comparison to the market, a bit too much focus on cost saving and profits. Service provider and not a consultant

    Advice to Management

    Fit4future is becoming too micro managerial and seems like a dictatorial approach. To save money, management should think about getting a 5% pay cut instead of losing 100 good people.
