Pros: laid back, work at own pace, friendly co-workers
Cons: poor compensation, isolation, reptitive workload
- Typical day of work insists: Showing in between 8 and 8:30 a.m., talk or say good morning to my co-workers as I make my way to my desk, sit at my desk and unload everything from my bag while my computer turns on, check my emails and any other things that may need to be checked, take green folders (pipeline agreements) and scan/upload them to my email, enter the documents into Williams websites (Flairdocs & Livelink), lunch is usually an hour long and taken any time between 11 and 12, after lunch I get back to scanning and uploading pipeline agreements until I leave in between 4 and 5 p.m.
- I have learned a lot about the oil & gas industry, especially working with pipeline legal documents. I learned how Pipeline Easement Agreements and Pipeline Right-of-Ways work. I have also learned how to work independently and self-motivate myself to work hard everyday. The work I do is individually done and is mostly repetitive. So, self-motivation is something you must learn and I have been able to adapt and work hard each day.
- The management here is great! Everyone is very nice and helpful. Most of the day you are working on your own, so you don't run into management often.
- My co-workers are very nice and have helped me with training and perfecting the job requirements since the first day I arrived. They are willing to help me anytime I come across a problem or question I don't know.
- The hardest part of the job in my opinion is the lack of face-to-face communication that goes on throughout the day. All of the work is individually done and I am in my own cubicle, so there isn't – more... much talking unless you pass someone in the hallway or have a question for someone. Although I like communicating and working with people more, I do work just as proficient and hard by myself. Like I said before, this particular job can get pretty repetitive, so self-motivation can become the most difficult part of the job sometimes.
- The best part of my day consists of the times when I do socialize with some of my co-workers on breaks or if I go to their office with a question. Also, I like challenges and learning new things, so when I get new stuff to do I enjoy every bit of it. – less
