Pros

401 k AND Health insurance benefits, the work environment is friendly and low key. The benefits kick in from day one and the staff is very friendly. Training is offered and education is reimbursed, new jobs develop daily and are posted for internal job postings. Education and advancement are encouraged. Williams donates money to nonprofits and cares about its employees health and wellness. Williams does things by the book and they are fair and honest in business dealings. They are on the list for Forbes top 100 places to work or in the running for 2008/2009. It takes some time to get a job however it is worth the wait.

Cons

    Pros

    The company is very laidback and is very reasonable with expectations. The company provides a good work-life balance for individuals with families and management is amenable and respectful to your needs. Company culture overall is very employee friendly. The pay package is generous compared to some competitors.

    Cons

    The company is painfully conservative at times as most of it middle management employees are 25+ year company veterans who think things should be done the 'good ole ways. Middle management and senior employees are resistive to change and do not seem to see the big picture [for the most part]. Innovation is said to be encouraged by upper management but often is stymied by middle management and senior employees. Vertical growth in the company is difficult to come by because management positions are not created often, you must wait in line to make manager - who are typically appointed rather than bidded competitively. Management positions rarely become open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instill a big-picture perspective in middle management and encourage and incentivize senior staff to be innovative. Companies who do not grow will go away.

    I worked at Williams

    Pros

    Was once a very stable company. Very staid, with a lot of job security. Easy environment to work in, although the decision by consensus was a little much, if you wanted to drive change forward. Good benefits, low stress until the bottom fell out.

    Cons

    When the bottom started falling out, Sr. mgmt was very slow to react, forcing it to ultimately sell off a large part of the company. Not much upward mobility. Good old boy network in place. Somewhat slow to make decisions -- very typical of an oil and gas company. Too many Sr. mgmr perks (jets etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the path to restoring the stock value. Continue to grow the company
