    Pros

    Parking was free, website access

    Cons

    Very little direction from corporate, no opportunity for growth, cuts to sick time, matches little in rrsps, no raises or performance reviews ever completed, some immature and unprofessional staff, no support or recognition, very tight with spending no paid lunches or work events.

    Advice to Management

    I’ve seen a lot of people discussing the outsourcing of certain duties to other countries this caused a lot of mistakes and language barriers made them even harder to fix, this often harmed relationships with clients, i'd suggest better training/education for these offices.

    Pros

    I can't think of many!

    Cons

    Really low budget projects - most of good and competent staff have left because of it. Some employees can be very rude due to the pressure on them to finish work. Clients always find mistake in the work done, embarrassing to be a part of company like that!

    Advice to Management

    Paycuts - 6%? No raise can be acceptable but paycuts for all staff may be pushing it!

    Pros

    WorleyParson has a wide variety of business units and alliances with clients. By delivering results and networking you can create opportunity for yourself and get a wide variety of experience. I was hired as an Engineer, EIT and was transferred to Shell site within three days. Lead to amazing career experience, that still benefits me till this day.

    Cons

    Lack of transfer of knowledge and mentorship. Additionally if you are not proactive you could be pigeonholed into doing the same task.

    Advice to Management

    Great management, I never had a single issue, was rewarded when times were good and was given valuable experience when the economic environment was struggling.
