Current Employee - Engineer I  in  Monrovia, CA
Current Employee - Engineer I in Monrovia, CA

I have been working at WorleyParsons

Pros

They have programs in place to help younger engineers adjust and acclimate. Management is flexible with schedules, generally. Benefits begin sooner than 90 days and you are eligible for 4 weeks of vacation after your first year. Most offices are on at least a 9/80 schedule.

Cons

Advancement is based solely on yrs in the position. That said, if you do your job there isn't a reason why you can't advance. If you don't negotiate well when first being hired on, it is difficult to ever get to where you could have been.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Folsom, CA

    I have been working at WorleyParsons

    Pros

    Benefits, both salary, insurance and retirement accounts are above average in both the industry and the nation. If the 9/80 schedule was consistent, that would be pro as well. Unfortunately it is not stable.

    Cons

    The entire company is broken, I have never worked for a company so lacking in consistency, process controls, operating procedures, communication protocol, internal education or training, work/life balance, budgetary oversight, leadership or company direction. It's very disheartening to hear so many people be physically unhappy with their job, and just feel they are making a paycheck until something better comes along, yet management is completely unconcerned with the high amount of turnover or low morale systemic throughout. We're all widgets, plugged in wherever a warm body is needed, regardless of project need, expertise, quality, growth or client benefit. What is the point in working for a company that is just shoveling out deliverables without thought to ethics, quality, value engineering or future development - of the world they so loudly tout as being so important, and their employees? And it has very little to do with cashflow, although that is always a factor, the fundamental elements of employee training, retention, career growth, company growth and vision is completely nonexistent. As one said, we are all drones, treated that way and now represented that way as there is no other way to function, you either deal with it or you move on, there is no changing it. And if you have any talent, you do move on, quickly, before your personal ideals are trampled beneath the feet of work completion and billability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize what individuals are capable of, hire according to location or group pursuits, and pursue RFPS on that basis, not the idea of "Centers of Excellence" which really is not congruent with what locations are doing or what your talent actually is. And do not go after each and every RFP on the street regardless of credence. Create a real, working mission statement, or one for each office, that is in line with the above.

    Also, provide time and budget (overhead) for proper training to ALL employees on project management and controls, allowing of course there are standardized practices and protocols in place for each. Develop a real career development program that is based on company growth, employee capabilities and future education, if applicable, and employee goals, not a career development program that is focused on irrelevant information, irrelevant company goals and non-existent paths.

    Former Employee - Piping Design Group Lead in Houston, TX

    I worked at WorleyParsons

    Pros

    Benefits, 4 day work week & lots of projects to keep employees into the future. excellent compensation, insurance and good leadersip at the 1st and 2nd levels of supervision.

    Cons

    The continuing change of work processes caused confusion,as well as poor communication between departments. There is very little to complain about my experience there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managemant needs to communicate better with 1st line management and keep the work flows more stream lined. The interface between upper level management and the design/administration level should be more personal, allowing for better relationships to be formed.
