    I worked at WorleyParsons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a good company for the people who have connections (with the minimum qualification). They survive till last minutes in the projects while there are lots of money and hours (lots of overtime/overspends).
    After passing 1/3 of project time, then the management decides to bring professionals to save the project. (with minimum money and hours) Now efficiency is matter. Up to here is OK. but..... continue in Cons part....

    Cons

    As I said these project initiators who created lots of reworks; if they had the connection they can be promoted, and transfer to another project to initiate the same setup. If there was any connection they will send them to some of the projects which are ending soon with almost no hours, they are still working but charging the bench time (overhead) and they will be out automatically.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing it was done in these years, was removing overhead positions. (A group with zero responsibilities and Qualifications and the highest pay and always connected. They were supporting the initiators' group to create more rework and never let them stay to the end to see the result of their job and learn something new.
