    Great group of (local) peers to work along side of, other than that not much else good to say about the company!

    I worked at Williams full-time

    Pros

    Some good employee's and pay was ok, not as much that others in the industry pay!

    Cons

    To much favoritism showed to the ones that "bad mouth" their co-workers and spend all their time in supervisors office and calling him!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and compensate the real workers, not the backstabbers! Check out the Frontline Supervisors are doing their jobs! Had one that took vacation day to play new game he received in mail on Xbox! Get them in field so they know what's going on and not listening to the ones reporting to them daily!

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Average Pay.

    Cons

    Favoritism in every department. No longer cares about their employees. This company only cares about showing a profit. Employees are just numbers. Numerous office closures and layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees for hard work.

    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

    Acquired some great software application knowledge during my time here

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees. Everyone is expendable. The share holder is their only concern of which management is some of their largest shareholders. Company denied COLA to employees in 2016 to insure share holders got their dividends.
