    I have been working at Wink

    Pros

    I would only recommend it for a person interested in project management or an on-site assignment. The company seems to highly value project managers as opposed to discipline engineers. Wink has active groups of onsite employees at several of the local refineries, and many of these assignments have lead to good direct positions.

    Cons

    For an engineer more interested in the technical path, you will not be a valued employee here. Furthermore, for over 18 months salaries have been frozen, more than half the company has been laid off, and the remaining employees are frequently sent home on forced vacation (or unpaid leave if you have run out.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees as if they are contract. People value the certainty of knowing how much they will be paid each month rather than wondering how many times they will be sent home. Respect employees that much be laid off rather than giving them 10 minutes to pack, escorting them to the parking lot, and giving them no severance. Finally, do not be so dismissive and disrespectful towards the discipline engineers. Favoring project managers at their expense is harming the company and will lead to a revolving door when opportunities improve. Employers have the upper hand now due to job scarcity, but the pendulum will swing the other way one day.
