Great people, poor progression
Great people to work with and to learn from, fast paced environment, constant change. Friendly environment and multi cultural office with good wellness theme across the business, flexible working. This is all combined with poor pay compared to the rest of the industry, small bonuses, additional efforts and high achievement often overlooked and not rewarded.
Pros
good pension package, medical insurance, opportunities to learn
Cons
High work load and poor management, high achievements arent reflected in salary

Problem solving
Each day was a combination of problem solving on historic applications and new project work. Each hour of work was required to be entered in time-sheet form at the end of each week.

There was the opportunity for personal development and this is how I learned Oracle PL-SQL.

Okay
I learnt a lot at the company, but there's lots of turmoil and non super professional management in parts of the organisation. It also could be a very political environment.

Good place to work, going through a transition
Wood Mackenzie is going through a transition period both due to (relatively) new ownership and the difficult oil market. However this is for the better of the company - as long as it retains some of its original culture this is still a great place to work

Good place
Its a good place to learn about the industry. Huge scope of coverage and exciting are to work on.

Work can be repetitive and opportunities for career growth are limited.

Ambitious and friendly workplace
Good work / life balance. Opportunity to learn and lot and take on responsibility. Deep knowledge bank to tap into. Management has seen quite a bit of churn in last few years due to change in company ownership. Fun people to work with who appreciate there's more to life than work.

The people I worked with were very nice and had good sense of humour
During my two week work experience, I spent four days at Wood Mackenzie with the creative and marketing team. I learned new skills on the computer by using photoshop and learned what happens behind the scenes of social media.

Key achievements:

Learned how to create a logo on the computer using photoshop.

Designed a logo for the Wood Mac Excellence Award.

Researched the branding of a recently acquired company as part of its integration.

Researched and learned how to design and use infographics when promoting a company.
Pros
An enjoyable work place
Cons
Long hours

Excellent Introduction to Software Development
I joined Wood Mackenzie as part of a one-year long apprenticeship through QA Apprenticeships.

Wood Mackenzie, despite having never ran a program such as this, provided a fantastic level of support to allow the apprentices within the program to explore the areas of technology which they felt to be interesting, working the schedule around the apprentices as opposed to the opposite.


As a result, every apprentice that graduated from the program left the company with a well rounded skill set and with a brilliant foundation of knowledge to help them kickstart their career as software developers.


The atmosphere within Wood Mackenzie was quiet, relaxed and enjoyable to work in which helped promote good relationships between co-workers.
Pros
Close proximity to Haymarket Station, Free fruit, Plenty of social events
