    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Wood Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They provide opportunity but you have to push for any advancement with the company you contract to. To be fair, a lot depends on your immediate manager. Mine was very laid back. I’ve had some in the past who were more involved.

    Cons

    Again, if you have a low energy manager your success requires you to work through you client.

    I worked at Wood Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The constant change in management direction and flavor of the month initiatives keeps you laughing.

    Cons

    Can’t make a decision and operate in a vacuum. Weak HR that knows nothing about the business other than consistently spewing how they need to put the right people into the right roles at the right time at the right cost. At one point the geniuses in Houston sent a demand letter to all suppliers for a 25% reduction without informing their business units of this action. They don’t listen.
