    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Williams full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Williams has a lot of talented, hard working people who are great to work with.

    Cons

    At times senior staff is so busy that they are unable to spend one on one time with you that you need to learn to become really good at what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working at Williams is only part of who we are. Our situations and responsibilities outside of Williams can affect what we do at work (good or bad). It's nice to have a manager that understands that fact and cares enough to be compassionate when you are struggling at work.

    I worked at Williams

    Pros

    The program is pretty good about keeping you involved with other interns. There are plenty of social events and meaningful work to do.

    Cons

    Many days there was just nothing to do. Either I would be waiting on another employee for information or my manager simply didn't have something for me to work on. To be expected as an intern, but sill.

    Pros

    Loved the benefits the company offered their employees. Great environment and people.

    Cons

    Like large companies they tend to pigeon hole you to your skill sets that you were hired for. Their salary was a little lower then what market was paying.
