    Pros

    I loved working here even though I was only a contracted worker. lots of hours and lots of overtime. Great pay, great benefits through my agency.

    Cons

    It was considered a temp job, which I was unaware of until I got the phone call. And found out I only had 2 days left of employment...

    Advice to Management

    Be up front with everyone especially if the job is only going to last a year!!!

    Pros

    Loved the work environment. My coworkers and boss have been great! I hope to be hired on after i graduate.

    Cons

    As a female, it is a tad bit male dominated, but thats the ways of the natural gas industry.

    Advice to Management

    I really have no advice. I was given an opportunity and i jumped on it. Best decision to come work for this company. I have no complaints.

    Pros

    There are great friendly people who are happy to help. The pace is a bit slow so stress levels are low.

    Cons

    The company is old and antiquated in the way some things are done. It is hard to effect change, even when the employees want it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sticking to what has always been done and be willing to do new things. There are plenty of smart people with ideas, but they don't feel challenged.

    Pros

    Williams has a long history with a solid culture based on stated "Core Values & Beliefs" that are used to guide decisions and behavior. When times were tough, the company was good about doing everything they could to avoid layoffs. When it was inevitable (2002), they gave more than fair severance and as much leeway as they could.
    The biggest impression on me was made during 911. Because we did business with Cantor Fitzgerald on the 106th floor, there were some close ties to that building. Within a couple of hours after the first plane struck the tower, the Williams call center had organized the tracking of a "safe" list and provided an 800 number for people all over the country to check someone's name or to provide a person's safe status. Our group manned the call center for four days straight until other employees volunteered in shifts around the clock, some of us napping under our desks.
    I worked there for 12 years and held various jobs, starting in Energy, Marketing & Trading and ending with the Exploration and Production division which spun off into its own company Jan 2012. (WPX Energy)

    Cons

    The company always ran pretty lean and wasn't the most competitive in pay. Some business units in the company (not ours) had a negative experience when Williams merged or bought their company and took a long time to feel fully integrated.
