Good

There are so many wonderful things about working for the company. My favorite is probably the flexibility I have with my hours. I also love the company culture and enjoy working with everyone. A lot of employees love their jobs because it looks great on a resume and allows them to gain a lot of knowledge.

Amec Foster Wheeler

Huge global company with multitude of Foster Wheeler and Amex offices which never quite got synchronised before Wood takeover, and Wood haven't managed to do either. Previous FW offices were truly excellent, then progressively got diluted until nothing really left to differentiate from competition. New people orientated ethos sounds great, and all the regular online training that goes with it, but you don't feel it.

Pros

Salary was fine

Cons

Stress

a place where you learn multi cultural differences

Productive work place with good heart people. Dealt with stress and pressure with respect to co workers. At the end of the day they will make you feel appreciated and recognized. It is a place where I enjoyed the moment of learning and sharing my skills and talents.

Good Job Environment

There is very less exposure to a different type of work and less scope for the uplift of position. Yearly Compensation hike is meagre and employment development activities are nil.

A busy and challenging work everyday

Busy but challenging work everyday. I have learned to manage my time properly and prioritize tasks to be done. The management is good with all the managers being supportive to growth of each and every employee. Hardest part of the job is I have to adjust to middle east culture and deal with co-workers who came from different parts of the globe. The most enjoyable part is was able to learn more new experience and skills everyday.

Pros

Free Medical Benefits

Cons

Strict Rules in Kuwait

Work culture in Kuwait do not match with the western culture. Sometime the movements are slow paced. As a company AMEC-FW is great to work. Colleagues are very helpful and cooperative.

Project lessons Learnt

Well Payed

AMECFW is a good company to work for, however, I am working overseas, so the job/life balance is rough. But you understand that when you work as a contractor. Generous paid time off. Salary is good. Overall I would say the company is in the upper echelon of companies to work for. The only draw back is advancement, but this is not dictated by AMECFW it is by the client, so they have very little say in the matter. Do give annual raises, and bonuses.

Pros

Paid time off, 42 days/year, Salary is fair.

Cons

Long working hours and in Kuwait
