        I have been working at Willbros full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Great family based company, always willing to look out for their employees. Management has always been friendly and understanding when it comes to safety sensitive tasks.

        Cons

        The benefits could be better. When it comes to raises, you need to show your worth and wait out the process. They will not happen over night.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to make strides at scheduling jobs. Take into consideration what we may expect within the month so it doesn't affect the schedule

        I have been working at Willbros full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Solid structure, good benefits, room to advance, pay rates decent. People worried about the changes to the company because of a buyout, shouldn’t be concerned. It’s a positive move and secured the future of the company.

        Cons

        Pay raises were frozen for awhile.

        Advice to Management

        Doing a good job with being attentive to employees needs, keep that up.

        I worked at Willbros full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Great group of people to work with. I enjoyed the team spirit and employee events. Management was open door and the training was current. Benefits were on par with other similar companies.

        Cons

        Company has gone through financial stress. The company has sold off bits of the company over the last several years.

        I worked at Willbros full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Flexible work schedule. Great talent assembled in Denver before they laid most of them off.

        Cons

        Executive management in Tulsa were not adapting to changing times in order to keep core staff together in remote offices. The "Tulsa Way" is usually not the best way - and they weren't willing to listen to the alternatives.

        Advice to Management

        Engineering personnel are not simply a commodity that can be replaced by hiring a new person. Keeping the right people together is important - the sum can be greater than its parts.

        I have been working at Willbros full-time

        Pros

        Plenty of work, decent bennies, easy going. They are always hiring and if you are willing to work you'll stand out.

        Cons

        They are always hiring... Pay scales are below average. Very little formal training.

        Advice to Management

        You'll get better employees if you decide to make pay scales closer to the industry average.
