    I worked at Weir Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any unless you consider the hard working guys and gals actually doing the work.

    Cons

    Egos at the top that will stop at nothing

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? Things were good in the beginning until the new regime came into play. HR is a joke from the management up through division. Backstabbing is a daily occurrence. Watch your back should be the motto. The leadership there does everything they can to strip employees of their dignity while lining their pockets and egos. It is such a shame that when prior management went away, so did the solid culture and business integrity that once was. Quit stepping on the people that made that business what it was.

    Pros

    The overall group is helpful and work well together. My lead is hepful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Out of the 4 major factors for accepting this job, only 1 has held true. This is mostky die to the project i was hired in for being redirected, but my schedules changed 4 times in the last 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Nees to have a defined plan for the cloud project beyond the next 6 months. Employees need to know jobs are sound.

    Pros

    - Benefits are unrivaled
    - Business acumen of the organization is a decisive strength
    - Compensation and review process for employees

    Cons

    - With a large organization comes a lot of tape and procedure, this can be time consuming when attempting to be proactive.
    - There are ceilings at certain levels that are tough to overcome.
    - Volatility in the market can contribute to fairly transient personnel base.

    Advice to Management

    I'm going to leave this block empty by completing the 20 word minimum with things that interest me: Dallas Cowboys, Aggie Football, golf, my spouse and two little girls. So on and so forth.

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

    Pros

    Loved the work I was doing and my co-workers. Really enjoyed working in the oil & gas industry and would have loved to have stayed. Pay was pretty good until company was purchased by Weir.

    Cons

    Another story of a large corporation that doesn't care about their employees. Company was purchased from overseas and they knew nothing about the wellhead business and company spiraled down quickly. Employees were never shown any appreciation whatsoever. No pay raises or bonuses in 3 years. Bad management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who are knowledgeable about the wellhead business. Hire back the ones you let go to help bring the company and its reputation back.
