Vacuum blaster (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, Devon23 October 2017
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.
Pros
Good work force
Cons
Rubbish pay, chasing wages, having to use own holiday because of lack of work.

Bad, at the moment
Electrical & Instrumentation Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen, Aberdeen City27 June 2017
Seeing as it is no longer the 'golden age' of oil and gas, Salaries and career progression has clearly taken a backseat, which seriously affects the younger professionals within Woodgroup.

This attitude towards the younger generation of professionals, will come back to haunt them, as there is no real loyalty amongst many of the graduates to stay at Woodgroup long term.
Pros
Good Colleagues
Cons
Poor Salary/Career Progression

Good Company to work for.
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) –  North Sea Montrose Alpha, Claymore Alpha.23 June 2017
Good company to work for salary and benefits were competitive with other similar companies. Good team of people on site.
Typical day undertaking of breakdown and planned maintenance.
Health and safety culture always foremost during all tasks, job stopped when any issues arose. This was encouraged and supported by management.
Hardest part of the job was being away from home for 2 weeks at a time. Most enjoyable part was the time off.
Pros
Good package
Cons
Working and living away from home and family.
