Fantastic colleagues within IT, but limited career advancement and professional development within IT. Given the breadth and scope of the IT function, and it's global reach, there should be limitless potential for any IT person, but unfotunately that is not the case. I put this down to the culture and direction set by senior management.
Pros
Good benefits and great work life balance
Cons
Limited career advancement and professional development within IT

Wood operates in a number of different markets, oil and gas, operations, maintenance and renewable / technology.
Work can be office-based or site or offshore-based.


The workplace and the managers are progressive and ambitious for Company success.


The Oil and Gas and engineering support industry is competitive and the Company has to be adaptive and flexible to be at the forefront.


Great people work there with a great work ethic.

No management feedback loads of paper work to sign just to cover their backs. So many things overlooked and nothing really done to help with daily activities so I would only suggest working for this company as last resort.

Decent place to work although to many risks of redundancy when work goes slack. More work for office and design teams than men on the ground although well paid and challenging work and good variety.

The title says it all. I've worked for them for almost 4.5 years in the dock yard Rosyth and the only way you can move forward is if you are relative or friend of a friend. In short they do whatever they want. Covering results from on the spot drug samples to a relatives so they cannot lose jobs. Overtime was given only to selected group of individuals. Everyone else was ignored. Middle management (Supervisors) were diabolical. Drinking on the job, chasing female employee. All in all....terrible work environment. After raising several issues with management I was let go. No one likes people that rocking the boat. Be aware.

"Closed -door" Mentality with Management, lack of openess, lack of general discipline, e.g. people play with Mobile phones during Meetings; again, very Political work enviroment, most things done on a "Need to Know "Basis". Some key, good people holding it together, however, seems to be rather a lot of "Dead-Wood" (excuse the pun) several of the Senior Managers seem to lack integrity, there in the role through time served, not their overall ability.

Worst: The Politics between the different divisions of the Group, Working in a Sylo mentality.

Smokers breaks far too frequent and far too long each day !


Best : Enjoyed being back overseas after a stint in Head Office.

If I could give zero stars for management I would. They like to threaten you with your job, abuse the power of the position they are in Specially the leading manager, and cleaner managers. They have no people skills they mess up your pay, really bad for penny pinching, hr is not nuetral good friends with leading manager, no one to talk to when you have a problems.with
