    I worked at Wood Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I started working there, it was very people oriented. There were a lot of fun gatherings such as the Christmas party and Chili cook-off. I met a lot of truly wonderful people in my time with that company, of which I still speak to fairly regularly.

    Cons

    There was a lot of reorganizing going on and it wasn't necessarily handled as well as it could have been. Most everyone was on edge the last few months of my employment.

    Advice to Management

    From a QM point of view, someone needs to find a better way to communicate company changes to the employees.

    I have been working at Wood Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros: Good benefits, flexible schedule, good managers, very good office location, most of the people are fun to work with, just bought rival Amec Foster Wheeler.

    Cons

    Poor pay (pay freeze), IT isn’t very good (even though it’s outsourced), aloof mngmt in Aberdeen, they say they care about the employees but seems like that’s the furthest from the truth. At least here in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    We need a pay bump badly. Billions in sales, layoffs (meaning more work for us) but little to no compensation for that work. Step it up Aberdeen.

    Pros

    The people outside of management were amazing. The office facilities were nice and the flexible work schedule was also fantastic

    Cons

    Management sucks. The company is being taken in a direction that shows they value their people very little. Salaries are also very low for industry

    Advice to Management

    Value your people more
