    I worked at Willbros full-time for 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 for 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.

    I worked at Willbros full-time for less than a 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.

    Pros

    Pays well. You have Friday off.

    Cons

    They have different rules for different people. It's who you smoke, hunt, fish or drink with. If you are not one of the good ole boys you won't make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't believe everything middle management tells you.
