Productive but "focus on people" is only on paper.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Woking, Surrey – 25 October 2018
"Focus on people" is not the reality, but only on paper as one of company's core values. Favouritism is so high among the managers. Engineering qualification and skills are not important at all but is the communication skill to be promoted or retained your job. So you're in good hands if you talk a lot, but you will be left behind if you are not. There is very little or no development training is given at all. Good place to work if you are a contractor employee (salary rate is above industry or higher than other service companies) but not ideal if you are a staff employee as you will have very little or no career development and salary is very low.
Mechanical (Current Employee) – Aberdeen – 25 September 2018
Wood Group are very keen to offer short term contracts often on a trip by trip basis. Personnel often find that they are paid off when they leave the platforms for their field break. Only to be sitting in the house three weeks later hoping and praying that they might get a phone call to mobilise the following day.

HSE Advisor (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 31 July 2018
Continued rounds of redundancies made for a poor workplace. Core values continued to be focussed on people but were just words. The people in general were friendly but with any corporate office there will always be those people.

A busy office environment but with friendly and helpful work colleagues. I have been very privileged to work in various departments in the corporate office and have learnt numerous skills along the way.
Site Lifting Focal Point (Former Employee) – Offshore - North sea – 7 March 2018
Having spent the best part of 10 - 12 years working offshore, i can say that Wood were probably the best company i worked for. No issues with training requirements, assistance if required and feedback for questions asked. A very enjoyable time at Wood.
A good place to work, fun, productive and enjoyable
Fire SENTRY (Former Employee) – Rosyth – 7 March 2018
A good place to work with no two days being the same. A typical day starts with permits and ends with permits being signed off. Management provided good leadership and information, and were also good listeners to any health and safety concerns. The work place was one of fellowship plus hard work. Good team efforts were a must with everyone pulling their weight. The hardest part of the job was the access at times with great care having to be taken due to hot work. The most enjoyable part of the work was seeing a job well done and the people I worked with.
