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.

PA to Head of Group Assurance (Former Employee) – London and Knutsford – 1 May 2018
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.
Materials Specialist (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 22 January 2018
Wood Group were a great company to work for I would have still been there today if not for redundancy and the downturn in the oil industry. They were flexible with me and communication within the company was second to none I would recommend them as an employer to anyone
Integrity engineer (Former Employee) – Aberdeen – 15 January 2018
In good old times, when there was plenty of work and rates were high, this company hired too many folks, a lot of them with no degrees/qualifications and competence. During difficult times, a lot of folks had to go, but chosing leavers wasn't always fair (competency/qualifications based), with a lot of politics involved. There's little, if any, focus on training and career development of engineers, and there're too many (often incompetent!) managers, who think they can add value to the projects. Rates are high and budgets are not realistic, hence low rate of winning new projects. If you are a yes man, you'll be fine. If you are a person with your own opinion, you are likely to end up in a bad book.
Nice office, very good HR, flexible working hours
Poor (and top heavy) management, no team spirit, poor morale
It’s an ok place to work apart from the supervisors attitude to operatives
Advanced Scaffolder (Current Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 15 January 2018
Erecting and dismantling all aspects of scaffolding,as a charge hand you’re expected to deal with squads off men and customers,the wages aren’t the best but as a secure job it’s as secure as you’ll get.
Scaffold Encapsulation (Former Employee) – Rosyth – 10 January 2018
Wood group is a multi faceted, multi skilled company based around oil & gas, marine & renewable energy sectors. It is regularly re-assesing it's safety record and trying to improve. Like many work places in this sector, a project may have a huge work load or very sporadic come the end of a contract.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Rosyth, Fife – 28 December 2017
I believe that this Place would be a lot better if the Place wasn't run burn corrupt managers, very high health and safety standards, security guard think they are the police, lunch hours and smoke break times are to short
Rigger/Scaffold Inspector (Former Employee) – Africa – 11 December 2017
I have worked all over the world for Wood Group for over 20 years. Excellent Companay with excellent career prospects. Very sad to leave, but they only let me go due to budget restrictions. They have given me excellent references.
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – Kuwait – 4 December 2017
Professional culture maintained in the working environment. we are free to do our daily basis activities.we can gain our technical and professional knowledge from the senior persons. Company more concern about the Health & Safety and Quality standards.
The work force within wood group is amazing, great lads and a fun place to work. The management is a joke, the pay was always wrong eg. Wouldn’t pay the correct overtime that had been worked and would spend a week chasing owed monies. If there was no work on you are expected to use your own yearly holiday or risk losing a days pay. I spent more time on holiday through lack of work then i did at work. I would not recommend working here to anybody.
Good work force
Rubbish pay, chasing wages, having to use own holiday because of lack of work.
