    Pros

    Steady pay. Short commute. Decent cafeteria

    Cons

    This is the most highly political company I've ever worked for. And when I say "political" I mean it! I was asked by my director last week if I was going to the Trump rally. I didn't want to answer but was pressed. I finally told him that if I were to go, I would be going to express my first amendment rights to peacefully protest Trump. Not only did the director become irate and say I can't do that, but he told me I would be fired if I did so. I followed up with HR and they wouldn't say that I would or wouldn't be fired, but said that I could be terminated if I did anything that reflected poorly upon the company. I am shocked and am now accepted I have to look for a new job.

    I have been working at Williams full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The only thing that keeps me around is that it is one of the few places that embraces conservative people and views. The folks there are really trying to make it great again, just not sure if they can make it happen in light of the headwinds we all face.

    Cons

    Have been at Williams for a long time. The company struggles to find its path and reorganizes every few years, has regularly budget cuts (several times a year now), and one to two reductions in force a year. They continue to grow corporate to push out more and more bureaucracy to try to manage work they don't really understand.
