    Pros

    Pay is decent - but is not worth happiness.

    Cons

    The company has no idea of the direction it is headed. There are way too many issues and losing money left and right with customers.

    Horrible work/life balance. They do not care about your personal life and if it involves you working 50+ hours a week, you will.

    Advice to Management

    Be MANAGERS. That is what you get paid to do. So DO IT.

    Pros

    Good company, highly ethical and excellent corporate values. Safety and people are a high priority. hard workers are given opportunities. Multiple business units and locations within the company so there is a good opportunity to travel to new job sites.

    Cons

    If you are not committed, they will quickly notice and do not hesitate to take you out. Crisis has taken high impact on their operations, salary increases, performance bonuses, etc.

    Pros

    The best part of the job is you usually have little to do with Wood Group unless you have training that is due. The job is actually up to your client that you will work for, and it all depends on how your client treats you. My experience is great, but I have personal connections with the client.

    Cons

    Large company, and has very little personal touch to anything. Most offices have several thousand employees, and you are basically just a body filling a position. The con is Wood Group will hire just about anyone if they meet the minimum requirements. It seems that most employees are able to bounce around when they get fired by their client, and avoid being terminated.

    Advice to Management

    The management does a good job with training events, and doing what they usually do with a company this large.

    Pros

    All in all Wood Group is a great place to work. Coworkers are friendly and easy to get a long with. Management is very flexible and approachable.

    Cons

    Everything is based on the price of oil so job security is always an uncertain.

  9. Wood Group is an ok company, when it was managed by the "Scot's" here in the US it seemed to be more "people" oriented

    Pros

    Diverse group of employees - good benefits- CEO is a great guy- wish he would clone himself into all management roles. People under him need to really learn from him.

    Cons

    "People" are not at the core of their values- some managers don't seem to want to help you grow.

    Advice to Management

    the best way to get people to work better is by providing them the comfort of growth, great family-work life-

    Pros

    Various places and companies to work with. 14 days on and 14 days off. Decent benefits, medical, dental, vision and 401k with matching.

    Cons

    Pay is not great for the time spent away from your family and friends. That may depend on which contract you're working under. If you have a family (wife and children), being gone for 14 days away from them is hard. Some of the people you will work with are not friendly at all. Which can make for a very long 14 days. Training classes are mandatory and are only scheduled during your time off (although you do get paid for those days) which cuts into time home with family.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell your employees lies to keep them working. That will only satisfy them in the short term.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, competitive salaries, 401k with company match, safety conscious, work half days on Friday, great experience

    Cons

    Terrible managers, company does not care about employees, no opportunities for training, limited advancement opportunities, low morale, lots of rumors and guessing games because management doesn't communicate with emloyees

    Advice to Management

    Promote people to management based on qualifications and not who they know. Train management on how to treat and talk to staff. Make your employees feel valued.
