    Genuine about their core values,

    Assist with your training
    Some great people to work with

    Cons

    None worth mentioning that matter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its important to share learning's amongst all your team, why have people struggle with the same problem at different sites when its already solved somewhere.

    I have been working at Wood Group PSN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting work in local and international oil and gas projects. Practices what it preaches in terms of safety - reminded daily of the importance of a strong safety culture.

    Cons

    Limited personal development opportunities at the moment due to limited work (on the back of slow economic conditions and lack of operator activity). Do not feel valued as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lacking in definition of defined career paths. Considerably more can be done to make employees feel valued - it's the little things that count.

    I worked at Wood Group PSN

    Pros

    Good money with a lot of hours to work. You do not have to have a background in oil and energy, they will teach you how to work with it. Safety is HUGE to the company.

    Cons

    It is a heavy labor job. Sometimes the managers can get behind in providing materials like tools, equipment, and resources in completing and performing jobs.

    I worked at Wood Group PSN full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Wood Group PSN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good working environment.
    Strong core values.
    It is a good place to start a career, there are several courses provided mainly to develop your soft skills and help building a solid working attitude.

    Cons

    Poor benefits.
    Poor interaction with other Wood Group Companies (Mustang, Kenny, etc.).
    Still lot to do to consolidate the whole Group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a big area of middle Management which puts a big distance between Executive levels and basic employees. There seems to be a genuine effort from the CEO to reduce this distance but still lot can be done.
