I was a contract operator for ENI Petroleum. Wood Group was a respectable company with a solid safety culture.
Production Operator Level IV (Former Employee), Lafayette, LA.June 18, 2013
Pros: working 14/14 in the gulf.
Cons: being a contractor because of job security.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Wood Group. If I were down and out, I would definitely go back to work for them. Some companies you would rather not see again but everyone that I encountered here were professional and courteous. I loved the adventure of being an offshore production operator. Especially working in the field on unmanned platforms and – more... such. I learned a lot about what it takes to keep a facility running. It isn't as simple as many perceive. – less

Many opportunities around the world
Deep Water Production Operator (Current Employee), Lafayette, LAMay 10, 2013
You get out what you put in at Wood Group PSN. There are many opportunities in the oil and gas industry and Wood Group can provide an avenue to many of them. The harderst part of my job is being in the ocean for 14 days away from family and friends. The most enjoyable part of my job is that there are no mosquitos or other insects in deep water production!

An excellent company to work for.
Rigger/Scaffolder/R.O./Primary First Aid (Former Employee), Marlin Platform, Bass StraitOctober 27, 2014
Pros: salary, workmates, good supervision.
Cons: isolation, weather.
My time with Wood Group PSN was extremely rewarding as they were very supportive of the workforce and the supervision was fair and honest. The workday was always clearly planned out and we all knew what we had to do and the emphasis on safety was exceptional. I learned to work as a team in a large workgroup and to trust my fellow workmates to watch – more... over me as I would watch over them. The hardest part of the job would have to be the remote conditions but these were always managed capably. The best part of the job was the satisfaction in seeing positive results for the work and effort put in by the team and as a workgroup, we all got along so well with never any friction, we knew we were all part of a great team. – less

Need to Take a Time Out
Training & Competence Coordinator (Current Employee), Aberdeen, SCTAugust 28, 2014
Pros: fair salary, good benefits - flexi time, 9 day fortnight.
Cons: intolerable management processes, archaic systems.
When I was looking to cross industries and make a start in Oil & Gas, Wood Group was one of the Companies that I had my mind set on working for. At the time, my understanding was that they were a 'blue chip' Company that had a long standing reputation based on quality of work and efficiency.

When I joined, WG was still in the aftermath of amalgamating – more... with PSN and, as such, they were still working under two very sets of processes. I was shocked by the antiquated systems that the Company was still using. The software and methods of using it is highly inefficient and noone has any idea how this ties in with other parts of the business. Add to that, I was rarely given more than half of the information that I required to do my job efficiently, always having to ask questions and being pointed towards people who 'may' know the answer becsuse my Line Manager didn't. Not only couldn't my Line Manger answer my questions with regards to the tools and processes that I needed to do my job, they didn't seem to really understand all of what my role actually entailed, this I found out of my own accord through talking to others within the Company.

WGPSN seem to currently be stuck in a vicious circle of losing contracts because they can't provide a quality product, making cutbacks and changes (for the worse) in an attempt to steady the ship, losing good people because of the changes and cutbacks.

There are some quality people working for this Company but they don't seem to be given the opportunity to take a step back and analyse the big picture. The Company have huge potential and, while I am in no doubt that they make a substantial profit on a yearly basis, they could make an awful lot more with some time and investment in their systems and processes. – less

Great company and opportunities
Senior Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee), Melbourne, VICJuly 28, 2014
Pros: global network of resources to execute projects
Cons: work relies heavily on projects available - gfc caused a big downturn in work
I worked as a Mechanical Engineer at Wood Group PSN starting as a graduate and working my way to a Senior Mechanical Engineer. There is good opportunities for career progression and to work on various projects around the globe. There are also some opportunities to work abroad, but not usually in the most luxurious locations.

The only downside is that – more... Wood Group PSN, like all other engineering consultancies, relies heavily on projects from other companies. Events such as the GFC caused many projects to be shelved and I had to see many good engineers and friends go. – less

Core Crew Electrical Technician - Bleo Holm FPSO (Current Employee), Offshore Aberdeen North SeaJune 18, 2014
Great team to work within and liasing with various different departments to expand my aptitude of the offshore industry. Day to day basis would be carrying out maintenance and fault finding on all aspects of electrical equipment. Feel fully comfortable within the role I currently hold and can happily rely on my co-workers for advice and assistance where – more... required. Very rewarding working well with everyone on board and achieving a resolution to any problems that arise from a day to day basis either big or small. – less
