    Great People work here

    GIS Drafter I (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsProjects 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior Piping Designer

    Senior Piping Designer (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsPays well. You have Friday off.

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementDon't believe everything middle management tells you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible, inexperienced, uneducated leadership. Low pay for long hours.

    I T & Sharepoint Administrative (Current Employee)

    ProsLaid back, don't seem to care if you really do your job or not.

    Plenty of opportunity to learn what NOT to do when running a project.

    ConsLeadership - every level.

    Low Pay - no chance for a raise with this company. If you ask, they will ignore you or tell you that you should be happy to have a job at all.

    This company doesn't know a good thing when they have it. They let one of a kind employees go without noticing what they are losing until it's too late.

    Pointless "Safety" company premier works super hard to snuff out your workers comp and insurance claims. They've actually hired a 3rd party company to screw you over if you get hurt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace management ASAP.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employees Should Unionize

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsCompetitive wages, numerous offices nationwide.

    ConsBelow average benefits, dictator management style, adversarial relationships between offices, expect and require employees to work from home on the weekends, holidays and during vacation by providing laptops and smart phones.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlign offices with single operations & management plans, replace group "managers" with leaders who understand that employees are the true assets of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
