Typical day at work was gathering company background information in response to client's tender requirements particular to the job requisition. It was difficult to gather information needed from others within the company based on the brief timeline offered by the client. Manager's time was limited in response needed during certain situations. The most difficult part of the job was the stress level of meeting the client's deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with co-workers who were cooperative in being team players for the company and the requirements needed for my job.

Good Pay and Benefits

Wood Group is a good company that is in transition, trying to align the many subsidiaries under a One Wood Group flag. I feel that my group does not pursue projects with enough urgency. I have been there about 7 months and there have been 2 layoffs due to lack of work. This concerns me and is the primary reason that I am job hunting again.
Productive and diverse workplace, Wood Group is a great company to work for. During my time at Wood Group, I have met and befriended many wonderful people. Their attitude and work ethic made the day to day hustle more pleasant.
Crisis Respite of Austin, Mental Health Aide (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 4, 2017
Punctuality is important and so is carrying your own weight. It is important to be a team player when you work here, and also, it is important to be able to be autonomous as needed. Pay was the worst part and be willing to occasionally work shifts you don't want.
Wood Group is a company whose culture is less and less about it's people and clients and more and more about increasing the overhead for a select few while removing team builders, functions and events from billable employees.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – April 26, 2017
Things started to go downhill when the PSN Merger happened, and from 2014 they got rid of some of their best staff, leaving incompetent management particularly in HR whereby jobs were given to those 'whose faces fit'. Too many cooks in the kitchen, huge departments with too many people doing goodness knows what. A terrible shame.
