    They sell a dream and don't deliver

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsThey are very well rescpected in the community.

    ConsThey have awful managers that work there. They think they are the only player in town. Sell contractors on becoming fulltime then string them along.

    Will also rescind offers if they don't get their way!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR needs to provide the proper training to hring managers on actual ethical hiring practices.....Once you make offers to people you should not rescind them for trival reasons!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConCon

    Accounting (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsThere were some really good people working there, the company encourages community involvement, the industry itself is very interesting.

    ConsVery political atmosphere, sometimes hostile unjustifiably. Managers did seem to be on ego trips and not necessarily interested in mentoring their employees, nor in running a quality department. There are very few people there you can trust.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing your people and the quality of the output of your department. Stick up for your staff if they are right.

    Mixed feelings about the experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    ProsWilliams has wonderful benefits, contributes to the betterment of the community, has many talented and intelligent people working for them. A permanent position with the company is definitely worthwhile, esp if you can get into a department with good management.

    ConsWilliams will lead contractors to believe a permanent job is on the horizon for them (one for certain was kept on a leash for 4 years), and then never deliver. I know of many who were treated as I was. They use the older contractors to train the younger college recruits, and then let the older contractors go, even ones who have been loyal contributors to Williams for over a year. Some of these "older" contractors were under 35! I was a contractor trying to get a permanent position with the company. A great deal of money was invested in training me which turned out to be a complete waste as a VP would not approve the position to be permanent. I noticed a great deal of resources spent in other areas as well that were seemingly wasted regularly due to politics and power struggles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the older worker who brings experience and maturity to the company. I understand the desire to try to keep the young professionals in Tulsa, but to mistreat and use the older professional shows a lack of class and will cause them to leave Tulsa instead, and take their skills with them. Eventually, the younger professionals will also leave for greener pastures in other states, after they've made their mistakes at Williams. If you want to hire a college recruit, do not kick a contractor out of the position they've been working in for months and sometimes years to do that. It is better business practice to do right by people. The long term rewards are much better for the health of the company.

    Not as professionally rewarding as I would have liked.

    ProsIn Tulsa it is a decent place to work.

    ConsDecisions by consensus lead to a very slow decision making process.
