Enjoyed working with the sub-contractors
Fabrication/Construction Lead (Former Employee), St.Johns NLAugust 28, 2013
Pros: personnel who reported to me were very able and dedicated to their tasks.
Cons: for me there was a lack of support from senior management.
Office area too small for number of staff. As far as I was concerned there was a lack of suppoert from senior management.
I derived my most pleasure from dealing with the sub-contractors and working with them to meet scheduled completion dates.
The personnel who reported to me were diligent in their work and we forged a good team spirit.

Junior Electrical Designer (Former Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 17, 2012
Pros: lunch n' learns, free lunches and learned new information on the technology
Cons: communication was not consistent
Great company to work for. Manager and co-workers were always helpful and great to work with. Worked on a variety of projects which gave me more experience with different standards and expectations. Hardest part of the job was some of the last minute deadlines. Most enjoyable part of the job was working on different projects with different project leads.

Wake up 2PM,go to jym 2.30.Main meal at 5PM.Pre start at

To be an active part of a productive smooth running team with
critical focus at all times on safety
WGPSN management maintained transparenty with its workers and
were at all times approachable
I mainted a great working and social relationship – more... with my fellow work
mates and all personal on the rig and still do.
The project comeing to finalization,but that is always reality.
Meeting new people, working on the contant changes and challenges
that occur on construction projects,and working in a team enviroment
that delivers the desired result. – less

Wood Group PSN - At a glance
Instrument/Pipefitter (Current Employee), AberdeenMarch 3, 2014
Pros: paid on time, opportunities dependant on job role.
Cons: poor management, nothing in place for individuals wishing to progress.
A large company with opportunities worldwide. I am thankful for my time here and have learnt a great deal.

Sadly my managers were reluctant to let me progress by attending further education while working.

I would still recommend WGPSN as a company to work for.

Offshore Electrical Technician
Offshore Electrical Technician (Current Employee), Aberdeen, SCTDecember 5, 2013
Pros: earning potential.
Cons: can be an unpredictable industry.
I find the offshore lifestyle gives me a better balance of life and more quality time with my family.
I've spent a lifetime working away from home for weeks at a time, in and out of the UK, living out of hotels and b&b's.
Working offshore is where i want to be for the rest of my career.
I feel i'm beginning my career path again, the stress offshore – more... is much less than i'm used too as I've come from a very stressful working environment.
The management skills I've generated over two plus decades has helped me form some good relationships offshore.

I can honestly say i don't find any part of it hard.
The most enjoyable part of it is i remember what part of the industry I've come from and that makes offshore work enjoyable in the scheme of things. – less

Production Operator Level IV (Former Employee), Lafayette, LA.June 18, 2013
Pros: working 14/14 in the gulf.
Cons: being a contractor because of job security.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Wood Group. If I were down and out, I would definitely go back to work for them. Some companies you would rather not see again but everyone that I encountered here were professional and courteous. I loved the adventure of being an offshore production operator. Especially working in the field on unmanned platforms and – more... such. I learned a lot about what it takes to keep a facility running. It isn't as simple as many perceive. – less

Deep Water Production Operator (Current Employee), Lafayette, LAMay 10, 2013
You get out what you put in at Wood Group PSN. There are many opportunities in the oil and gas industry and Wood Group can provide an avenue to many of them. The harderst part of my job is being in the ocean for 14 days away from family and friends. The most enjoyable part of my job is that there are no mosquitos or other insects in deep water production!

Pros: good training
Cons: job security
I enjoy working for Wood Group. They are a well established and organised company. I have found that they are always looking to improve the training and competance levels of their work force and I have beniffited from this.
