Pros

Pays pretty well, no dress code, come in when you want, leave when you want.

Cons

Management incompetent..in it only to line their pockets. Promotions are not based on best qualified, based on good old boys network and affirmative action. You can not promote the best, unless you have a good performance process.

Advice to Management

Develop discipline. Learn from past mistakes. Promote the best.

    Pros

    Best pay you can find in Tulsa compared to other places.

    Cons

    The good old boy network is alive and well here. Various cliques exist that only promote people in the areas for reasons besides the abilities. One group was known as the mormon mafia, if you weren't a mormon you wouldn't be accepted in the group. Another was headed by a woman that only hired women. Still another was based solely on being male. If you could get into one of the cliques then it wouldn't matter how good or bad you were you would be promoted and moved on up without question.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. The senior management is as bad now as it was when they were a whisker away from going out of business. They only survived because of dumb luck investing in E&P in the Rockies. And they only kept that business because when they were doing a fire sale to raise money no one wanted to buy it. In all the management is not going to grow the company just manage what they have.

    Pros

    Our company is growing, which is much more fun than the downside we endured a few years back. Employees typically have a short commute to work (5-20 minutes) from anywhere in/around Tulsa and parking is a breeze. We have an on-site fitness center and cafeteria. Williams offers a strong 401(k) match AND a pension plan. We also have an employee stock purchase plan. Overall, our benefits are great and easy to use.

    Cons

    There's a perception in some areas of a good-ol'-boy network. I view our young management as both good (fresh ideas) and bad (upward movement may be stunted for some).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with us either face-to-face or in a way that's not corporate-speak and sounds more like it was something you actually thought and wrote.
