Project Senior 1 Construction Manager in Chantilly, VA

I've worked at Edwards and Kelcey/Wiles Mensch Corporation for 7 yrs and I was very happy with this company. The overall team atmosphere was very supportive.

Wood is a good company to work for. Management tends to be fair on the annual reviews. Teamwork is not perfect, but it is great most of the time. Lot's of good people to work with at Wood.
Residential Specialist in Austin, TX

It’s not necessarily a difficult job. You’re just not paid very well. You can make more working fast food jobs. There’s always openings because people are always leaving for something better. So at least work is stable. If you are looking forward to a full time job for medical benefits prepare to be disappointed. There are no vision or dental benefits. Only medical and even that’s not that great.

I get lots of autonomy in my job and the time off is very flexible and easy to schedule. Benefits are pretty good and it isn't a problem to use them. The pay is probably the weakest point though, and it's rare to get a raise
Lead Quality Control Engineer in Anchorage, AK

I honestly regret not being able to continue working for the Wood Group. They seemed to have a wonderful synergy of work/life balances, with regular after-hours team building events that weren't a corporate slog. The work environment was technical but lax, and to this day I use the Wood Group as the golden standard for everything I look for in employment.

Background check takes a long time now. Want to know you skill level. Test usually hard and long.

It was to long ago for me to remember. Mostly I was very familiar with the company. Actually worked for WGM from Oct 2006 through June 2009, at which time there was another downturn
