I worked at Wood Group PSN full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You are surrounded by very knowledgable people in a friendly, open collegial atmosphere.

Cons

Advancement to the higher ranks is very unlikely unless you are Scottish. This is true especially in the Americas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Beware the nepotism and cronyism

    Company procedures are very disorganised, it's similar to working in the wild west!

    I have been working at Wood Group PSN as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The teams in the regional offices have a "in it together" attitude, in which good engineering is delivered despite the overall corporate governance. No previous expereince of Oil & Gas industry is required, the team helps to bring new entrants on quickly.

    Cons

    There is a lot of uncertainity within the industry at the moment (Dec 2014). Rates for contractors are below average though the long hours compensate; salaries have been frozen with little in the way of a benefits package. This is a "bargain basement" type company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There’s a perception at the moment that through cutting rates and freezing salaries the industry will be saved. This single minded approach is akin to a "race to the bottom" approach which has never worked out well in the medium to long term; in the short term it alienates and destroys good corporate cultures. The current focus should be efficiencies and lean as well as salary/rate constraint.
