You are working for a company with very little support and no real sense of security. I will not recommend Wood. There is very little loyalty to their workers, to them you are only a profit center
Pros
Nothing I can think off
Cons
Very long hours with very little appreciation

You’re only valuable whilst you can be billed out 100% of the time . Very quick to lay people off when things turn quiet. Tend to work in silos and people don’t share information in order to protect their jobs.

Slightly Disorganize environment. Questionable leadership in this company. Seems that the company is going thru quite some uncertainty in retaining good employee.

Family friendly. Great company to work but depends mainly on client for workloads. Hope to get more projects in the future. Nice location and nice people.

Blindfoled management who expect more from workforce with no reward or career path.

Management disengaed from workforce, even cancelled xmas break up. Due to no money after winning new contract no xmas party or any rexcognition in them gaining renewed contract.
Pros

lack of direction from head office

The high hierarchy management just looks after them selves. Bullying is a normal procedure. Complete desorganised. Supervisors live to look after politics.
The business is 800% politics.

If you want forget technical skills to become a bootlick get employed there.

It was refreshing to work for a company that meant what they taught when it comes to safety. In the high intensity/high danger work environment it was awesome to know that safety was their culture, not just a slogan. Great bunch of people to with.

Only providing holiday cover so cannot comment truthfully on the company on the whole. The girls in the office were a pleasure to deal with, not so the agency or umbrella company

The culture in Wood is great and allows one to grow as required. There is no policing of resources but rather a trust that keeps individuals proactively delivering better than expected.

One would think in the year 2019 that a Totalitarian style of management wouldn't be around, but in the Brooklyn offices of Wood. it's alive and well. The Management there enjoy long coffee and lunch breaks while the workers aren't allow to leave their seat for more than a few minutes before they are questioned or even put of disciplinary action. Management restrict who you can and can't talk to in the office. This Toxic workplace should be avoid.

This place was a terrible place to work. Full of 3rd work competitive Curries and Filos who put you down and make life hard. They also stink. Salary was a joke with no carer progression. Do not work here people or you will regret it. Management also are a complete joke and pocket all the revenue in bonuses with no pay increases given to staff in 5 years.

The senior strategic resourcing advisor in Brisbane is arrogant and incompatant in their job role. I have never come across a company that has a recruitment process that is run so shamefully wrong by one individual.

Wood. has done nothing about the workplace Bullying in the Brooklyn Office. People are going home in tears all because of one toxic person. If you complain about about this person it just makes your day to day life worse. HR & Management are fully supporting the toxic behavior and raise disciplinary action against anyone who speaks up.
Pros
Going home without a knife in your back
Cons
Getting knifed by DQ

A typical day of work was reporting to 4 managers whom did not communicate with each other and attempt to understand what each manager wanted in contradiction with the other managers.

I learned Well Integrity Software.


To this day I still do not know who my manager was out of the 4 with contradicting corporate agendas.


Workplace culture was horrendous with the threat of being fired any day and assigned at least 2 fulltime job duties.


Lack of corporate accountability and communication with defined objectives.


Meeting new people and traveling the globe, as well as, completing work that was highly regarded by the clients.
Pros
Subject Work
Cons
Managements Lack of Communication between themselves and myself

Absolutely disgraceful bunch of useless fools whose expectations exceed their capabilities i felt sorry for the woods group maintenance bosses they were top guys dealing with impossible odds !

The day to day challenge was having the constantly defend yourself from the toxic and undermining management. If you said something it was usually used against you so management could score points on you. The workplace culture in the Brooklyn Office was the most toxic place I've have ever worked over my 30+ year career.
