Used to be a great company, but poor management and CEO

Human Resources (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Teekay full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, nice sincere people to work with

ConsTerrible communication within the company, the CEO does not know how to interact with his employees. Unfortunately CEO and management does not execute communication properly within the company. CEO does not have people skills and comes off as untrustworthy. Just check the employee surveys to confirm this.

Advice to Senior ManagementLosing great talent to the competition should be something to think about. What was once a world class company is now an average run of the mill organization.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsMultinational workforce & dynamic organisation due to the industry of the company. Many new avenues to further ones career in the shipping and offshore industry with the market leader.
