    I worked at Amec Foster Wheeler full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - During the busy season, you will be able to choose among tons of projects the one that would support your career path, of course you have to perform to be able to choose. - Project Managers makes you feel that you count. - Salaries are good. - If you ask for opportunities eventually you will get them

    Cons

    - Transition after the merge between Foster Wheeler and AMEC was not the best ingredient to the current o&g crisis. Basically the company ran out of projects and the layoff was massive.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and follow it. It's already 2 years after the merge and Houston office is still in transition from one plan to the next with no results so far.
