I have been working at Wood Group Mustang full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people working on projects. Everyone generally works together and helps each other to get the job done.

Cons

The growth of Mustang, including its mergers over the past 2.5 years has been so much so quickly, that it has brought a lot of challenges, including many managers so disconnected from the projects that they make it more difficult for the project teams to perform their jobs. Since the projects serve the clients and make the company money, it is uncertain if the current state of chaos will eventually get better or not. There are too many senior managers (over 35 Vice Presidents) that provide little to no value to the organization. The company has become very controlling and rigid in how it is handling many job requirements that it has reduced the flexibility needed to accomplish the job.

Advice to Management

Get back to basics of what made this company great, starting with the culture. There has been such a shift away from the traditional Mustang culture that it doesn't seem to be the same company. Secondly the leadership of the company is severely lacking, with very little emphasis on ensuring the project teams are given the resources they need to perform the jobs and the project managers given the ability to make things happen and not be stalled by the lack of support from the support entities within the organization.

    I have been working at Wood Group Mustang full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flex-scheduling was maintained even after mainframe overhaul, so our ability to have every-other-Friday off is available. (Not quite 9/80, but able to work four 10-hr days to have a Friday off)

    Many chances to get involved with community/volunteer events, good team-building sessions built in each year for the departments, and brand new buildings available to a good portion of the Park Ten office personnel.

    Cons

    Career development within Accounting is not strong for all the groups. Turnover is a problem and employees are not always replaced, leaving an abundance of work for not enough employees to handle. Not all advancement opportunites are open to all employees (often place people in positions instead of holding interviews, not everyone gets a fair shot at new openings).

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication, train your employees better, and offer better support-roles for the accounting members constantly dealing with technical issues in the new system upgrade.
