A great place open to new ideas & wanting to do things right, period.

Pros

If you are proven in your field, conservatively progressive and want a place to respect what you bring to the table (and compensate well for it), Willbros is the place.

Cons

After growing through acquiring other companies, learning to bring unity amongst different conceptual frameworks just takes time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not being afraid to challenge, shake things up a bit, and try the more progressive route is definitely worth the risk, especially when more of the culture is more ready than you might think.

    I worked at Willbros full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with a fantastic project group of engineers. I really enjoyed my time there. Learned alot in a short amount of time. Several people have left and there are numerous vacancies. A new hire could step in and move up very quickly.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits!!! Could not stress this enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not going to pay an engineer top pay, then do not expect the good ones to stick around.

    I have been working at Willbros full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good pay and no pressure.

    Cons

    You don't when the ax will fall. The lead piper surrounds himself with yes men. If you are in his smoking group, hunting group etc. you can do no wrong. But, he has rules for himself and his friends and rules for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you really need three heads of drafting?
