Pros

Great people working on projects. Everyone generally works together and helps each other to get the job done.

Cons

The growth of Mustang, including its mergers over the past 2.5 years has been so much so quickly, that it has brought a lot of challenges, including many managers so disconnected from the projects that they make it more difficult for the project teams to perform their jobs. Since the projects serve the clients and make the company money, it is uncertain if the current state of chaos will eventually get better or not. There are too many senior managers (over 35 Vice Presidents) that provide little to no value to the organization. The company has become very controlling and rigid in how it is handling many job requirements that it has reduced the flexibility needed to accomplish the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to basics of what made this company great, starting with the culture. There has been such a shift away from the traditional Mustang culture that it doesn't seem to be the same company. Secondly the leadership of the company is severely lacking, with very little emphasis on ensuring the project teams are given the resources they need to perform the jobs and the project managers given the ability to make things happen and not be stalled by the lack of support from the support entities within the organization.

    Pros

    Company is very family oriented and puts on several team builders throughout the year. Good benefits with an onsite health clinic. Very knowledgeable staff and most are willing to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    There is a significant gap between company pay and the industry standard. Small business culture is being slowly replaced with that of a larger corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love to see a return to the "small business" mindset.

    I have been working at Wood Group Mustang

    Pros

    The company works hard to keep their employees happy and involved in the overall efforts of the organization. They are supportive, and believe that family is the most important thing. Working with the company is like being around family.

    Cons

    The company does not pay as well as other companies. Advancement opportunities are available for those who are great assets to the company, however salary increases are not in alignment with the positions or responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should look to evaluation how they handle the advancement and introduction of employees into new positions. And look to discuss salary changes that are compatible to those changes.
