Pros

9/80 work week, nice office, most of the people are very friendly. Company making a nice comeback, possibly opportunity if you can make the grade. Attempts are being made to improve overall desirability as an employer.

Cons

Weird mix of mentalities, no real corporate culture. No bonus unless you are a big shot.

Advice to Management

People are not tools.

    I have been working at Willbros full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior Management cares about people. Weekly in person updates from the Vice President. Chance to give anonymous feedback or suggestions at any time. Pay and benefits are above industry average.

    Cons

    Construction is a fast paced business. Lots of project deadlines, but management is supportive. Not much salary growth in the past couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Some co-workers are fun and good people.

    Cons

    Poor, indecisive management. Old boys club hiring "friends". Turns blind eye to inappropriate employee behavior and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Step down before you drive the company to bankruptcy like you did with your previous company.
