    Pros

    Good salary, nice office building and location

    Cons

    Management by intimidation and ultimatum. It's all about profits. Leadership is via good 'ole boys who continue to lack leadership and team support skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either train the director and vp levels in people skills or move new people in. Internal promotions of people who have been passed over for years allows their weaknesses to be manifested and ruins the company in the long run.

    I worked at Willbros full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice work environment. Located in a central area.

    Cons

    IT department needs improvement. More communication as to what is expected of employees would be nice. New systems introduced with no training and without all of the bugs being worked out before go live. Work/life balance is talked about but not practiced on a regular basis.
    Medical benefits could be A LOT better compared to other organizations I have worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give guidance to those who are new to the position. Improve work/life balance.

    I worked at Willbros full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I gained management experience and met many wonderful people.

    Cons

    Very unorganized....you never know what your walking into going to work everyday. I had a different boss every other week. They change procedures weekly. Just exhausting.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone make a decision.... It's difficult to manage an office when policy's and procedures change too often and upper management can't help you because they have no idea of their job responsibilities..

    No loyalty to a loyal employee.

    I worked at Willbros full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Safety as 1st priority. Likeable people to work with. Wasn't constantly looked over my shoulder to see if I was doing what I was supposed to. Granted time off to take care of family matters.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Have found out through other sources I was probably being underpaid. Profit / Loss statements had been negative last several years.

    Buddy system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Geta grip, stop just hiring your buddy, andre hire people you layed off that really cared about

    this company. Pathetic. You need your employees, stop thinking you only need your self.

    The best reason to work here is that they have a lot of positions that you can move up in.

    Former Employee - GIS Drafter I in Houston, TX

    I worked at Willbros full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people work at Willbros. They treated me well when I first joined. The company is certainly looking forward and my co-workers were very responisive when I asked for help. Pay was right on point as well as the benifits. I enjoyed working at the company.

    Cons

    Projects were sometimes slow. People were constantly moving back and forth between offices. If you needed help on a certain task, you would would have to wait and that puts you back when you want to get something completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people for the position. If you have multiple people you can split the task and you'll be able to get it done. Don't let people go so quickly.
