Pros & Cons

  • I am surrounded by amazing people on my team who are caring and nurturing and always there for me. They care for me both professionally and personally.
  • Great peer group and networks, learning development support and visibility to senior leaders.
  • Very high level of responsibility given to graduates in Subsea and Pipelines. There are plenty of opportunities to go offshore and on site to learn. Professional development is valued.
  • The level of responsibility which is entrusted to graduates makes them strive to perform at higher levels.
  • Flexibility in role. Great variety of roles available in company. Open to developing different skills. Very good and friendly culture.
  • Roles and experiences can vary between graduates.
  • Currently Woodside is an Australian company with the majority of its interests limited to Australia. However, I anticipate this will change as the company expands globally over the next 5-10 years.
  • Bureaucratic. Lack of support from senior engineers - due to their heavy workload, not from lack of trying.
