Reviews by Wood graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar3.4GradAustralia surveyed 12 graduates working at Wood . Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 12 responses.
- Positive working relationships with colleagues
- The significant amount of technical knowledge I have been able to learn from friendly and highly experienced colleagues.
- Interesting and challenging work
- Good technical resources. Approachable management. Responsive to change. Site based rotations.
- Friendly environment,
- Poor communication / stewardship in adhering to and maintenance of elements of the management system
- Opportunities to develop through technical training courses is limited
- I haven't been here long enough for minuses
- Not much technical training.
- Currently, I'm not working on my discipline projects. Wood Group has a history of having problem assigning graduate with their discipline project as WG's clients are typically reluctant to accept new graduate engineers on board.
What insiders say about…
Ad-hoc, ensuring presentations look nice for management to present to higher management.
Engineering manager overseas leads for all discipline teams. Lead engineer runs the team of principal's, seniors, engineers and graduates. Excellent cooperation within teams, and fairly good transparency up the chain. Company has a great safety culture, and is getting better at keeping all employees up to speed with business developments, and rewarding employees for excellent work and commitment to core values etc. Good business culture, but social culture is a little lacking - could use some more investment.
Technical and behavioural questions
From limited experience, very reasonable in the current market.
Cover all business related expenses...not much else!
Management are fairly accessible in the office. Most would make good mentors. There is a good level of internal communication, however little is focused on praise and recognition.
Formal training is available if required by a project and / or role. Additional training is made available to deserving recipients. Personally, I've had training in project management, helicopter survival techniques, incident investigation, internal auditing and behavioural standards. Awareness-type training is also available through lunch 'n' learns and other avenues; however these are often targeted, which is warranted, towards engineering services.
I am only one year into my career so a little hard to comment, however, speaking with colleagues assures me that if you work hard and can prove competence, progressing your career through the ranks is definitely doable.
Definitely promoted throughout the company. That being said, I am in a team of male engineers. When I started, there were 3 females who have since moved on to other roles or companies.
