Pros

The Williams Companies are very good at Midstream. They are experienced, and proven in Midstream. They have excellent history to draw from in gas processing and have a lot of experience in pipelines. The company seems to need more qualified engineers that will allow for advancement.

Cons

Working in Midstream can be monotonous. It can be very boring and dry at times. A lot of the engineers seem to have a masters in this or that, and that helps to move up in the company. The Upstream portion of the company pays a lot for leases rather than exploring for new sources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to spend so much on leases, rather, try to develop an actual exploration program and don't be afraid to develop an oil play.

    Pros

    The company provides a good work-life balance in addition to opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Divisions still exist among employees in the different businesses (competition between E&P, Midstream and Pipelines).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is always important to listen to employees and be receptive to the feedback they provide.

    Pros

    Pays pretty well, no dress code, come in when you want, leave when you want.

    Cons

    Management incompetent..in it only to line their pockets. Promotions are not based on best qualified, based on good old boys network and affirmative action. You can not promote the best, unless you have a good performance process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop discipline. Learn from past mistakes. Promote the best.
