Good company but limited loyalty

Operations Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Wood Group PSN full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBefore the acquisition of PSN, very good company, good loyalty and a great team. Very supportive management with an engaging style and very people focussed.

ConsAfter the acquisition of PSN, if your face did not fit you were gone. The whole business was centred around a few individuals and they had their own agenda.

Advice to Senior ManagementRun the business to your Core Values......or don't publish them. People are not Central in the company values, more on the outer edges.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

PSN Core Values are Excellent

Finance (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Wood Group PSN full-time for more than a year

ProsMostly very good people to work with, the Core Values of the past PSN regime are excellent...Bob Keiller is an awesome inspiring and sincere leader.

ConsIn the Americas almost all senior jobs are held by legacy Wood Group Scottish imports at huge ex Pat salaries. They ignore the Core Values and laugh at Bob Keiller who is the best most sincere Major Company CEO that you are ever likely to meet.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace legacy Americas senior management and restore observance of the Core Values.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
