    No overtime, typical power hungry hierarchy management style, low chance of long term stability, not the greatest rotation schedule, pay increases were minuscule.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employee there are easy to work with. Transfer between different department is not a big deal, all because nobody care about you and your future.

    Cons

    Never trust what they put on in the performance review. Career future is means nothing. If you are loyalty, you are screwed. Make sure you are only loyalty to yourself. That way you won't get hurt. Payment is great, but company is outsmart you. You need to work 9.5 hours. And they give you some kind of DDO (designated DayOff) means you cannot use it when you need, you can only use it when company need.
