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.
The team I am part of is very good a t working together. We communicate with each other and share things that may be useful to team members. We all get on well, socialising outside of work once every couple of months. We have lunch together at least once a week. We all report to our Delivery Manager.
