    Pros

    Great people and flexibility

    Cons

    The restructuring has taken a toll on everyone. Attitudes have changed. 9/80 schedule was taken away for no reason, now working a ton of hours with little balance.

    Advice to Management

    The 9/80 were greatly appreciated and encouraged everyone to want to work more simply because we appreciated the perk. Would be nice to have back.

    I worked at Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stable job and good benefits and lots of free Williams chatchka and decent money alotted for work boots.

    Cons

    Poor safety record. The area I was working in had very little growth and was neglected. Once Williams took over no one was ever able to provide me with a promotiom matrix. During the downturn I was given a two person job and told not to have OT. Once things started to get better & I felt that I had done a good job at keeping costs low & still doing my job, I thought a promotion would be close and I asked several times only to be brushed aside while I watched others promoted. I wish this company luck and I appreciate the experience I obtained, but I don't stick around in jobs where my hard work is unappreciated and taken for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to take care of your good employees unless you enjoy high turnover.

    Pros

    Some really great people work at Williams.

    Cons

    Management has no clear direction. They make changes for the sake of making changes. Only a matter of time before they will no longer be financially stable.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the company direction and stay on task. Stop using the "good old boy" system of management. Start at the top and work your way down. Evaluate every manager and replace anyone that cannot contribute to the company direction that has been defined.
