    I have been working at Petrofac Facilities Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, working hours, holidays, pension scheme. They are a fair employer, offering a very competitive package compared to others in the area. Middle managers are good, upper managers vary greatly. Strong ethical, environmental, safety and cultural values throughout the company.

    Cons

    Departmental communication is not very good. Accounts are disorganised leading to disgruntled suppliers. Aberdeen treated as priority and other UK offices are an after-thought. Recent roll-out of a new Oracle system has been traumatic - poorly managed and the training was lacking.

    Pros

    Opportunity to progress, people are nice.

    Cons

    Training is poor, get rid of people whenever they don't need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on making it a good place to work and making people feel less like a commodity.

    Pros

    Good variety projects are given to the young engineers. Project range from topside to subsea engineering .

    Cons

    Sometime the project manager can allocate same job to the same person . This can lead to boring time and no new challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More variety work should be given

    Pros

    Petrofac really looks after their people with a lot of interesting team building event, family event and annual ball. It is a fast growing company with a lot of prospect all around the world including studentscholarship sheme.

    Cons

    Like all big companies you feel a bit like a number more than a person, however each line manager really listens and take interest in each department and its people.

    Former Employee - Project Quality Engineer in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Petrofac Facilities Management as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good rates, pleasant working environment, good team.
    Recent appointment of a competent Quality Manager in the Aberdeen office.

    Cons

    Promotion of Quality, HSE and DCC (staff) employees, without adequate competencies, to senior positions has contributed to inefficient working practices and lack of standardisation, putting the company at risk in some instances. The lack of control has allowed different departments to procure different (and expensive) systems so personnel transfer across departments and projects is inefficient, with little similarities between them.
    There appears to be a silo mentality, which has encouraged the building of 'kingdoms' at the most senior levels.
    My experience showed negligible training, except for the business software applications, which are not the easiest to deal with, and differ across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to recognise that disciplines such as DCC and Quality DO create revenue as not only does a client expect delivery of what you say you do, as in the contract, but expects it in the MANNER in which you say it will be done - as in ISO certification, your policies and an effective QMS. Don't forget that ISO 9001 has been honed over decades to provide an effective and viable business designed for the long term. It requires maintenance and investment, including in training, as this will improve motivation and contribute to improved working practices and efficiencies.
    Give your (competent) Quality Manager authority and resources to do his job as one of his most powerful drivers is IMPROVEMENT!
    And get yourself some decent Quality training if you don't believe me!
    Get the training anyway...

    I have been working at Petrofac Facilities Management

    Pros

    Good terms and conditions package.
    Good supply of PPE even if though it takes a long time to arrive offshore.
    A good Work force Share saving scheme.

    Cons

    I previously worked for Petrofac before but the terms and conditions have changed for the worse, in fairness this was not due to Petrofac but the Contracting Company who use Petrofac to supply labour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We would benefit from a better Petrofac Management / Workforce Interface on a one to one or group basis with no Contracting Management present for a more open and representative expressions of peoples true opinions and concerns.
