    Good company for those who fit in.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsVery safety conscious, more than willing to promote within. Excellent benefits! I appreciated the trust and new responsibilities they put on me during my years there.

    ConsOnce merged with PSN, there were gray lines when it comes to establishing responsibilities, could change from day to day. Mass lay-offs puts too much pressure on certain employees who's plate was full and would have to take on someone else's position who was let go of the day before.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop an outline of proper responsibility for each department. Respect the work load of each employee. Annual one on one review would help. Listen to your loyal employees, they know what's needed to make an efficient team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    PSN Core Values are Excellent

    Finance (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsMostly very good people to work with, the Core Values of the past PSN regime are excellent...Bob Keiller is an awesome inspiring and sincere leader.

    ConsIn the Americas almost all senior jobs are held by legacy Wood Group Scottish imports at huge ex Pat salaries. They ignore the Core Values and laugh at Bob Keiller who is the best most sincere Major Company CEO that you are ever likely to meet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace legacy Americas senior management and restore observance of the Core Values.

    Great company, great people

    Finance (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsYou are surrounded by very knowledgable people in a friendly, open collegial atmosphere.

    ConsAdvancement to the higher ranks is very unlikely unless you are Scottish. This is true especially in the Americas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeware the nepotism and cronyism

    Good place to start in the Oil&Gas

    Project Engineer (Current Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsGood working environment.
    Strong core values.
    It is a good place to start a career, there are several courses provided mainly to develop your soft skills and help building a solid working attitude.

    ConsPoor benefits.
    Poor interaction with other Wood Group Companies (Mustang, Kenny, etc.).
    Still lot to do to consolidate the whole Group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a big area of middle Management which puts a big distance between Executive levels and basic employees. There seems to be a genuine effort from the CEO to reduce this distance but still lot can be done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Work itself is okay, but there's little DIRECT communication from parent company on project

    PMO Engineer (Current Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsThere is a good benefits scheme and job oppotunities worlwide

    ConsThough there are training oppotunities, there is nothing the company des to identify skills gaps. It does little to identify job satisfaction, with there being no contact with management

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your HR dept management to adress the above.

    Good company but limited loyalty

    Operations Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsBefore the acquisition of PSN, very good company, good loyalty and a great team. Very supportive management with an engaging style and very people focussed.

    ConsAfter the acquisition of PSN, if your face did not fit you were gone. The whole business was centred around a few individuals and they had their own agenda.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRun the business to your Core Values......or don't publish them. People are not Central in the company values, more on the outer edges.
