Job Culture
Work is highly variable in quantity. Management prioritizes utilization targets and deliverables over employee development and security. Leave without pay is heavily applied if no banked overtime and/or vacation time is available. Management is all over the place in terms of priorities. Safety culture is dependent on who is running projects. Compensation is on the lower end of the spectrum.

Wood does not facilitate professional development nor follows through on discussions regarding career/experience goals. This is not a company to start out a career with.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
No training, Compensation is not competitive, Will be asked to take extended unpaid leave, No opportunities for advancement

Horrible place to spend a career. Management bully and threaten employees with a culture of fear and oppression. HR manager might be the most evil person to step foot in Newfoundland

All management thinks about is themselves. No communication. The workforce morale could not be any lower. Nobody follows processes. Losing business.

Good place to work when they have projects but rely too much on their H.R. department for recruitment of new projects. The H.R. department tends to start with a clean sheet and do not give priority (or even consider it seems) to the hiring of previous employees. Does not show too much loyalty to their laid off employees. This complaint is not specific to only Wood but has been a growing issue thru the industry over the last decade or so.

Workplace was good to work in. Each job was different and required a new set of skills to complete each new job. Working together with other disciplines was also good.

I enjoy working at Wood, can be hard as it is all project work and oil prices can dictate how much work you have. Management treats you very good. Its a great place.

Good place to work at and the staff know what they are doing. Would recommend this place for anyone just starting out. I had some good times there for the 6.5 years.

Great company, learned lots in maintenance and drilling atmospheres, management on the platform look after their workers greatly. Everyone gets along to make their job a lot easier and safer. The safety culture is great and well known and I feel comfortable on every job I do there because of it.

A typical day for me was to fly on a plane to locations all over the USA and commission and startup facilities. The company treated me well and ensured that my costs were covered while working away. Stressful as it was, they were always thoughtful.

It is like any other engineering company, nothing special. The management is more considerate on respecting people dignity and the mental security. I can say Wood is one of the best in this respect. Of course it always depends on the manager and the discipline that you are working in.

Good environment; they focus on safety and culture; those in leadership are trained well to handle tough situations. Unfortunately jobs come and go with the economy.

Management such as group leads and Project Managers do very little while placing the brunt of the work on the very few techs. As soon as PMs and leads start not procuring jobs the techs are the first to be shown the door, happened to a close friend of mine and would have happened to me had I not left on my own accord.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Poor Management

It is a pretty good place to work.
However, due to company policy, salary review or increase is limited not by your performance.

Also, they lay-off people and re-hire which they are using to cut the salaries.

Wood, former AMEC (Vancouver) was a great company with good work / life balance, good people, great experience. However, after Wood takeover, many senior staff left or retired, and company hired younger people, with great potential, but with far less experience. Challenged to get new, large projects.

Difficult to advance and make changes. A lot of brick walls, no indication of direction and fear for job loss given the merger of the companies. As an engineer the experience may be better.
