Company Culture

Company is only interested in higher ups and those who know the higher ups and caters to those employees and not everyone.

Support from management

This was the worst. The managers only care about themselves and those connected to them.

Teamwork

Teamwork was good if there was big money involved. Otherwise, it was fairly normal.

Internal Communication

Many times, processes changed and no one from the home office would notify the satellite companies until is was too late and everyone had to get on board fast.

Gender Equality

The women in this company are looked at as sub par and get the worst raises.

Overall compensation for your work

Wood Group fires people for no reason, especially top managers. Just walk you out. Many have experienced this and they are known for this in industry.

Environmental Friendliness

Only if the client makes them.

Work-Life Balance

This was great but it was only because the parent company allowed it. It wasn’t anything Wood Group decided.

Company Image

Not good. Many companies don’t like them but they have to work with them due to the contracts in place.

Job Security

Not good at all. You could be gone from one day to the next.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Wood Group needs to refocus back on what makes companies thrive and that is people and all people.

What I like about the company

Not much. We were bought out so we had to change over to Wood Group but if we had a choice, we would have all stayed with the company we had before.

What I dislike about the company

Management is horrible and HR is worse. Reported issues don’t get resolved and they lie to the employees all the time.

Company Culture

Lip service only.

Freedom to work independently

Depends on who your supervisor is.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take a lesson from competitors on how to treat employees.

What I like about the company

Opportunity to work with people from other countries.

What I dislike about the company

No real interest in employee development. Unwilling to fund many things necessary to do the job which are standard at competitors' companies. Executives get big bonuses for saving money by terminating employment of loyal employees. Morale suffers in many areas of the company.
