Life at wood group form the Sweeny p66 project
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Sweeny, TXAugust 3, 2018
Upon working at the sweeney project with Wood Group it kept all of the old management team from when Wood group bought infinity group services. so there is a lot of favoritism and it shows it hurts the overall morale for workers. there is a lot of complaints and supervisors in positions only because they know somebody. there needs to be a management training program. we just continue to hear its on the way. Wood however does have opportunity to go to school but it is not promoted correctly a lot of employees are unaware of the benefits available to them. I believe it needs to have a revamp of management or at minimum proper training.
Pros
401k 100% up to 4%, tuition reimbursement
Cons
poor management, No room for growth

Americas Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 4, 2019
I enjoy my role as Finance Manger. It provides me with the opportunity to do Financial Reporting and Analysis. I learned to use HFM consolidation software. I was provided the opportunity to grow by taking on additional responsibilities during my time here. I have been happy here but due to a merger, my position may be phased out.
Pros
Flexible work schedule and good benefits
Cons
Changes in ownership

Training Scheduler/Processed New Hires (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, LADecember 20, 2018
Did not like working there. Decent benefits but that was all. Too much family working there and and who you knew to move up in the company. Many good employees were looked over for raises or bonuses and not treated fairly.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Not what you know but who you know or related to.

They went out of business. Not sure how helpful this would be.
Graduate Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 20, 2018
Kenny was a company that did their jobs well. They focused on offshore development and project management for the bigger oil and gas companies. They had a good environment, good managers in my experience, good pay and benefits, I wasn't a fan of their training methods and the lack of advancement opportunities but they were fair and did their best for their employees. Not much changed when they were bought up by Wood Group. The bosses stayed the same and everyone kept working until the downturn slowly killed Kenny off. To my understanding Wood Group finally cut their losses, kept the employees they felt like keeping and essentially dissolved the company. End of the story.

Good learning experience, but very competitive
Designer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 1, 2018
When work is available all is well, but when work starts decreasing people tend to hog up work and leave others without. Hence people without work are first to get laid off. Managers favor who gets trained and who doesn't. Pay is unfair. One can be making double and doesn't have skills the person getting paid less has more skills.
Pros
Company name, good benefits
Cons
Poor management, unfair pay, double standard, favoritism

Overworked
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  USADecember 4, 2018
The company is cutting costs at every opportunity and that means each person doing more as those around them are let go. There is no additional compensation to go with the extra work just more stress that you will be next.

P/L Construction bunch generally regarded Wood as advesary, with few exceptions

Hard Part: Due to P/L installation progress, had to relocate after 5 months from Teaxas City area to Lake Jackson [close to P/L end point.

Best Part: Pay was good & follow Wood staff were very good, particularly the Inspection Chief
Pros
Salary
Cons

Fun to work at.
Rig Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Sheridan, WYNovember 28, 2018
Great place to work until times get hard and then only freinds or family are the only one's safe from lay off. When you work most people you work with are very good people. Hours were from 5:00 to 4:00 with around aroud 2 to 3 hours of computer work when you get home to include daily cost reports and end of day report. . On Sunday I would do my plan for Mon. and text and email it to my contractors. Phone would start ringing around 5:00 am and countiune until around 7:00 or 8:00 at night. Long hours but I loved what I did. Average mileage per week was from 1,600 to 18,00.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No job security

Principal Civil/Structural Designer & Checker (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 28, 2018
A good place to be employed with great benefits and 401K matching.
The in house work flow was very inconsistant.
The benefit of flex time arrival and departure was a plus.

They paid great but if you don’t have have experience they’re not really willing to help you.
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, TNAugust 12, 2018
Wood Group pays great money, they offer all kinds of benefits, I started working with them early March, they expect you to already know what to do. It’s not a good company to learn at.

Great pay but not much job security
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 20, 2018
It is a great company. Management is good and fair. Pay was good and benefits were great. Most all of the positions are Project based so if you happen to find yourself without another project to go on after your current project ends, you will most likely be laid off. Also performance reviews are done by 3 anonymous people in your dept. (usually your manager and 2 other co-workers) so make sure you are on your best and are nice to everyone!! You never know who will be doing your review.
Pros
Pay, people, relaxed
Cons
Not a lot of job security
