Greedy global company that does not care at all about employees
Cartographer (Current Employee) – Brisbane, Australia – 22 July 2015
once upon time there was a small company where all the directors knew all their staff. Employees were treated very well and enjoyed coming to work. Then amec came along - with it a CEO who looked at employees as if the thing before him was something he may need to wipe from his shoe later. He stood on a stage in front of a room and told us all were just there to make share-holders money. If you want to work for a company of greedy pigs who don't care one bit about your existence (other than it makes them money), then go for it. If you care, about anything in this world - environment, culture, work-life balance, family, sanity... than avoid like the plague.
Oh, and not one pay increase since they took over. Not even in line with CPI. In fact, they have decreased pay though superannuation increases (government ruling but some companies have made sure their employees don't take home less money as a result), and sent out a notice to all telling them they have to work an extra 2 hours every week without any pay increase. These really are nasty people work for.
treated like dirt; pay decreases; staff cuts leaving remaining over-worked
