Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 19, 2016
Amec Foster Wheeler is an ideal place for one who seeks growth and development in their technical skillset. There is no limit to what you are capable of learning in order to enhance your performance on the job. If you desire a particular skill, and voice it, you will be heard and that is where I value Amec Foster Wheeler most. Management is not afraid to invest in you.

Sr. Elect. Designer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 10, 2016
Was a good place to work based upon co-workers and close proximity to where I lived.
Typically I was left alone to complete my tasks with only minimal supervision by the leads. Lead engineers and designers knew how to help in completing tasks.

Very bad company!
Analyst (Current Employee) –  TorontoApril 14, 2016
A VERY BAD management!! Horrible environment to work in.
High expectations, little amount of flexibility in-terms of budget and schedule and a very poor management. The management team basically don't care about anything but to protect themselves.
In-terms of learning curve you will stock in repetitive meaningless jobs with no future.

Don't fall into trap! Very poor company.
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Poor management, No even work load distribution and bad environment to work in.
