    I have been working at Amey full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible working time. Average pay.

    Cons

    No democratic environment. They allow few of the team to rule and also these few of them use the rest of the team as steps or (objectives in their PDRS) for them to climb. The rest of the team is just aproductive tool!!!

    I worked at Amey full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working available - when it suits the business mind.

    Cons

    Favouritism within the business. If your face fits culture. Great policies on inclusion and wellbeing but the reality is that these are not demonstrated throughout the business - at least not consistently. If you like to be unrecognised and made redundant whilst other colleagues have their jobs saved with no fair selection process then please apply within. Ironically Amey's tag line - "Creating better places to live, work and travel" is somewhat of a joke. Lets hope the new buyers of Amey strip it apart and implement fair culture, process and opportunity for all along with treating employees in the right way especially during hard times. Amey has been in the press recently for its approach to paying workers during the Covid-19 outbreak in London and this is a true reality of Amey. They have made a number of employee's redundant with no furlow or working from home options available despite the rest of the team working from home and other members of the same function having their job saved. Pay disparities are the norm. Men will be paid more than women for the same job and nothing done to rectify it.

    Pros

    You can honestly work with some amazing people Flexible working at times - can work from home which is good Will pay for your training (but have to repay of you leave within 12 months)

    Cons

    Extremely poor progression path and structure within the graduate programme. You are made to feel like an admin. Graduate programme isn't properly planned out, meaning that you are given menial, pointless work that doesn't develop you at all. When you ask for work, they never seem to have any that you will actually benefit and learn from. Do not apply for the graduate programme.

    I worked at Amey full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Flexible working 2. Great office 3. Some employee in Amey strategic consulting is still friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    1. You may be asked to do the internal work such as IT, recruitment and resourcing, etc. What's worse, the manager will ask you to book your time on the client project and it is rare to receive the BASIC respect even you kindly work extra hours on internal project. 2. There are very few machine learning related project and remaining data science projects are just heavy analysis (or even worse). People are on the bench for a long time because of the lack of project and the budget to do any innovation is very LIMITED. 3. As Ferrovial is selling Amey, the high-level of Amey is fighting for grabbing resources internally and others are in low morale. Some line managers won't talk to line managees for more than 3 months and have no willing to understand their work. In order to make a beautiful finance report last year, the TRAINING WAS CANCELLED and the margin requirement is very high, which led a huge pressure to PMs
