Pipefitter in Aberdeen, Aberdeen City
Not the worst to work for.
For the most part there is a team effort but there is also the undertone of job insecurity you may find yourself paid off after every trip or contract, almost impossible to build up service with this company.

Offshore Electrical Technician
Poor, poor company and proven blacklisters.Go out for a trip offshore and your P45 is sitting on the hall floor waiting for you.Like to pay you off just before your survival, and different certs expire and then phone you up and offer more trip when they see that you paid to do the certs yourself.May have been a good employer many decades ago, but now just a company that is morally and ethically bankrupt.
Maintenance Supervisor & Deputy OIM in Aberdeen, Aberdeen City
Enjoyed everyday at Wood.
Wood looks after its employees. I put the effort in to develop myself and my career. Wood acknowledged this and helped me develop myself both as a person and an employee.
Saving money is all that matters to this company and you are just a number
Worked here for 7 years and had one ‘promotion’ which was actually just them making a group of positions redundant to send to India to do instead remotely, I was one of the lucky few to get the new positions on offer after being put at risk of redundancy. Fast forward a couple years and another round of redundancies when the contract I was on went out to tender, that meant everyone on all contracts were put at risk of redundancy, meaning you had to prove you were better than the person(s) you were up against to take there job, very cut throat, luckily I was retained. Fast forward to the pandemic and more rounds of redundancies again because they were making positions redundant this time across various disciplines, instead replacing with people from India to do the work remotely because they were cheaper (not better), as a result I did not survive and was made redundant. This company only cares about the bottom line profit, they will not think twice about making you redundant if you don’t fit in whatever new business model they employ, definitely one to avoid unless you like the stress of not knowing how safe your job is.
Private- Office Based in Aberdeen, Aberdeen City
Stressful, unrealistic expectations, long hours
Long hours for minimal appreciation- expected to cancel holidays within 4 hours notice or risk loosing job.A lot of cliques: friends all working together and making problems for outsiders taking jobs that someone they know had applied for.Very immature workforce as a result of clearing out experienced teamsShame as this could be a great company if the politics are addressed.
