    I have been working at W&T Offshore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly people. Good pay and benefits. Good bonus when company performs well. Operationally focused with minimal number of loss time incidents. Management focus on safety.

    Cons

    Processes are extremely manual. Management does not care to invest in infrastructure. Many people don't care about their jobs and just want to work without being challenged

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the infrastructure and automation. Can reduce headcount by 25% if invested in automation and process improvement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at W&T Offshore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office space. Decent location. Off the 59 fwy.

    Cons

    No stability what so ever. What is represented before being hired is completely the opposite once you are there. One of the major problems with this company is the lack of HR direction. No solid policies and procedures which causes HR Management to be unstable. HR Management is all about self preservation.

    Advice to Management

    Please review and evaluate your HR Department. It is highly suggested that a HR Consultant be brought in to provide upper management some direction. The HR Department should be overhauled and the animal crackers retired.

    Lacks organization Lacks communication between upper and lower management Needs more direction for trainees

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate and keep everything you integrate 100% the same throughout the process of implementation . Find time to train employee and communicate with employees. Reach out to staff make sure communication is clear for every branch and department . Sometimes it can be like playing telephone because of lack of organization . Y'all are wonderful leaders , need to direct new people in same direction .
