Great Workplace.

very relaxed work environment, basically your own supervisor overnight, no issues that cannot be handled by just talking to you coworkers, very laid back.

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.

Large high volume beachfront establishment
General Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 6, 2018
Typical day at work involved staffing needs for the day at hand. Working in close relation with vendors to ensure quality product at cost efficient prices. Guest relations constantly ongoing in order to establish repeat business.

Learned profit and loss spreadsheets, forecasting delegation of duties to lower management.

Management always held open door policy for all employees to ensure that staff always had an outlet to explain any issues regarding their work. This made for an extremely positive atmosphere and culture throughout.

Hardest part of the job was dealing with an individual owner who did not have much flexibility in taking others ideas or opinions seriously.

Most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people alongside me, as well as those under me. Guest relations.
Pros
Free meals, home was very close to work, meeting people from all avenues of life
Cons
No health insurance or retirement, one individual owner, constraints on creativity and ideas

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

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

Bad company with worse leadership
Vice President, Corporate Contracts (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 31, 2018
Once Mustang was essentially dissolved and replaced by PSN leadership the credibility and integrity was gone. The current leadership is underwhelming at best, poorly prepared for the jobs they have and are borderline unethical in their actions.

This company disoolved many years ago
Senior Bookkeeper (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX 77010July 29, 2018
II liked working at Wood Luckinger. I was very disappointed to hear that they were dissolving and the partners were going to other firms.
I like working in a "big" law firm and concentrating on doing general ledger accounting.

Compensation is definitly worth it
Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  La Porte, TXJuly 8, 2018
Good pay, good coworkers, but jobs don't last long enough. If you're looking for long term job, might want to try another contract company, but if you're looking for a job to bounce around, Woodgroup is for you.
