Lacking growth opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I worked at Teekay full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent employee benefits, good bonus and company pension plan. Fresh fruit weekly and office support staff are very helpful.

ConsInternal employees are not valued as much as externally recruited employees. No commitment to promotion from within. Lacking feedback and progression planning.

A lot of overtime is expected. Not much work/life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementDepartmental heads to review internal employees' potential for growth and promotion within the company.

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

Human Resources (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

A dynamic company to work for if your goals lie in Corporate Management & Strategy.

Offshore Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Teekay full-time for more than 5 years

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.

ConsToo rigid as far as introduction of new comer´sto organisation goes. You are constantly watched. More like the management wants you to make an error rather than help you solve it.

Advice to Senior ManagementLossen up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Was the best company in the world, on its way down now..!!

I have been working at Teekay full-time for more than 5 years

ProsContinous Salary, 3 Months Contract, Medical insurance, Priority pass these are some of the things that one would consider working for this company

ConsToo involved in cost cutting, employs onboard are not provided with good quality equipment, too slow promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is still one of the best in the world, keep your employees happy and content and work for better and faster promotions

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Such potential, but falls short

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Teekay

Prosexcellent benefits
Great people
Safety is priority

ConsManagement turns a blind eye with anyone who has a 'manager' in their title. Quick to believe that 'manager' means they know what they are doing. Very large segregratin between management and employees and no merging of the two. They treat the office as a ship, everyone has a rank and gives the respect per that rank.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take a look at who you have leading your units.
