    I have been working at Williams as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lifestyle of employees very important. Very understanding and patient. Feel appreciated by supervisors and coworkers. A charitable company. Friendly workplace.

    Cons

    Contract status has been a little long but partly due to merger. Communication between departments sometimes isn't very good, makes it hard to coordinate work.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger push to bring everyone on board to the enterprise model. More emphasis on getting people in the field fully aware of resources available to them (new apps, services, etc).

    Pros

    The baby boomers are slowly but steadily retiring and this is creating opportunities for the younger generations. Great company culture and fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    Williams has been experiencing some turbulence like most companies in the energy sector right now. Salaries are mid-range compared to peers.

    Once merged and working with Williams in Tulsa, it felt like two different companies and never on the same page.

    Pros

    Great focused Company that paid on time -- expect to work hard and put in the hours with quality product. The work was demanding and hours were long -- just what I was looking for.

    Cons

    The hours were long but that is to be expected in this industry. I worked in the field as a contract worker through another company. Their employees seemed to care about us, but we were sometimes in the dark about progress.
