    I worked at Wood Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work at Wood Group and the work is interesting. Lots of change keeps you on your toes. Working from home on occasion is allowed which helps with work/life balance. Benefits are on the better end compared to other companies in the industry.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Wood Group tends to understaff their departments. It makes the hours long and the burden heavy. Acquisitions and divestitures sometimes happen at a dizzying paces which extends work hours and travel.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your departments according to current demand. Make sure not to over-burden your employees to the point that they leave because of time demands.

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

    Pros

    Wood Group has good core values at the corporate level. Benefits are decent and pay scale is average for powerplant operations.

    Cons

    Local management doesn't always follow the corporate vision or core values. Bonus system has built in "automatic penaltys" which cut into the bonus bottom line for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Outlying work sites operate independant of the companys vision statement and core values. Local management should have some accountability.
