I have been working at Williams International as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere, lenient managers, and an open-ended project made me enjoy my internship in the expansion group. There were also fun activities for the interns: most of the employees were pretty cool.

Cons

Not much to complain about, other than a rather unclear expectation of my work. It took me almost the whole summer to compile the analysis program I was working on, and got little help from supervisors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much: good job.

    I worked at Williams International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small private high tech company that can offer rapid advancement

    Cons

    A major change in company culture when the founder passed away. In my opinion; as rapidly as you can advance, you can be terminated for apparently any reason. In my opinion I was terminated for being too successful and making too much money on a commission bases. My job functions were passed to much younger employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of being overzealous of ones accomplishments; focus more on what is best and more productive for the company. Show more integrity, less arrogance, and greater appreciation of your high performing employees, as they are hard to come by.

    I worked at Williams International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Advanced technologies and tools to work with.

    Cons

    The company is small and subject to the whims of the owner. Be prepared to be dissapointed in any for of advancement as well as the very poor decision makings of upper management. Constant lay-offs and the owners propensity to listen to those not in the jet engine business make this to be one stressful job at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greg Williams should come to the logical conclusion he is not nor will he ever be his father, his thoughtless decisions have cost hundreds their jobs and the company valuable business and resources.
