High pay but away from home a lot. Excellent job for young people who aren’t afraid to work hard, not married or have kids. Otherwise it can be hard on a marriage being away so much. Great benefits too.

This company sucks, too many suck ups and inexperienced people. The pay sucks with no overtime and travel. The supervision is overpaid and only wants people that will do what their told.
Pros
no pros
Cons
not enough money, supervision only cares about themselves. Fake family environment

Excellent place to work. Upper management were real people. No egos. Would work for them again. The relaxed atmosphere encouraged productivity. Only draw back was work/life balance.

I worked with Willbros a few years back. Honestly, it was the best company I’ve ever worked for. There was one horrible employee to work with, but this person got let go, so now the work atmosphere is probably SO much better. I highly recommend this company.

The only thing that is close to a family oriented company is there is away to much family there and you can bet when you got all the hard work done there family will move to the top to accept the credit and you will be tossed to the curb unless they get stuck again

My Review has no bearing on whether I'm looking for work, in the same manner companies will not issue private information about the individual. My opinion about said company good or bad will not be posted.

Worked for wilbros in the e and I department. Extremely poor management more concerned about getting their buddies promoted than doing the job correctly. I was a foreman and quit after watching the project manager promote his friends while the company lost millions. Worst company in the patch for electrical.
Pros
None
Cons
8 hour days poor management

great place to work, hard industry given the current economy. I had worked with a great group of people while I was there, most of whom still work there.

I had an awesome group to work with through the 2 years with this company. Unfortunately, some of the management that were hired to run jobs were utterly incompetent. I'm speculating, but that could have been a reason why the work dried up completely when the market crashed while some companies were still able to keep some guys busy.
Pros
Pay, available work hours
Cons
Upper level management

Great Company. They have treated me with care and diligence. I have never had to look for work. They have trained me for each task or job they have asked me to do.

The supervisors, Formans, don't know how to handle people. They don't listen to some suggestions to lessen the works and make it easier and save money for the company. They don't put the right people in the job to minimize error and repetition of works. It's a waste of money when they cut short the cables.
