    Pros

    Wonderful diverse company in terms of full turnkey solution. Great potential to do more and exciting business .

    Old school thinking. Marketing awareness very low. No balance between technical and marketing, bizdev understanding.

    Advice to Management

    To re-look at the organizational structure of the company, work on internal marketing and PR in order to achieve huge results in the big wild world. Technology and ways of doing business has changed and this company should change too in order to be ahead of market.

    I have been working at W Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Here at W, employees really do come first. The variety of Projects allows employees the opportunity to learn new skills and trades, and provides numerous opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Due to the cyclical nature of the Oil and Gas Industry, occasionally work slows. However, W bends over backwards to keep their employees working.

    Advice to Management

    (1) Contribute additional funds to the Insurance Program in order to decrease the cost of coverage for the employees. (2) Match employees' contributions to the 401k Program. (3) Increase the number/amount of Bonuses

    I have been working at W Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn if you are willing. Not everyone is eager to show you the ropes, but you can pick up a lot of knowledge and experience if you pay attention.

    Cons

    This company is stuck in the past, and slow to accept change. There is no incentive to go offshore, because you receive the same pay as you would in the shop.

    Advice to Management

    Neutralize the clashing egos and resistance between departments. Develop more structure to ease day to day operation. Hire more employees that can go offshore so that the work load can be evenly distributed.

    I worked at W Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    none to report. All looks good to start with, thereafter you work like slave.

    Cons

    no schedule. upper management will treat you like slave. you must obey commands to travel wherever company wants and whenever they want. you dont get asked.. you get told.

    Advice to Management

    "grow up"

    I have been working at W Industries as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company that is performs a high quality of work. Good compensation, too! It seems like you can really control your own destiny here, with a lot of responsibility given to you if you so desire it. The people and personnel here are also incredible at assisting you and providing you with what you need to succeed.

    Cons

    The adjustment and ease into things was fairly intimidating. Until you get comfortable with the way things work and the other people around you, it can often be awkward and hard to complete things to the best of your ability. Not sure if I would want to work there full time!

    Advice to Management

    Improve office culture and cohesiveness!

    Pros

    Small company with flexible hours where one person can make a big impact. Very friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, different business units have difficultly working together causing mass duplication of efforts. Small company, so there is not much room to rise. Owned by a foreign company who sometimes makes weird management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive salaries, fix the interdepartmental issues, improve employee benefits.
