    Pros

    Pay is decent and people are great to work with. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and take on new projects.

    Cons

    Used to be a really great company to work for, but recent changes have depleted morale in the Houston offices and key talent across all business units has left to the competition.

    Pros

    Amazing staff, great access to mgmt, challenging work. Overall WP was a wonderful place to work and I would have loved to have kept working there.

    Cons

    Too many levels of mgmt, global vs. local initiatives not aligned at all, little support by HR. Felt I was misled with the position I was offered. Hired on to do one job was really was doing 2 different positions. Was supposed to continue on after a mat leave (hired FT, permanent) but was let go when someone came back from maternity leave.

    Pros

    Pay is above average for consulting firms and the O&G field, in general.

    Cons

    There is a work/life balance policy that is not even loosely adhered to. If you are an asset to the company, it is often difficult to even be able to take vacation. The company is not very forward looking; upper management always appears to be trying to leverage the company for the future, but little is ever actually implemented.
