    Good company to work for in an interesting industry

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Great Yarmouth, England (UK)

    ProsSalary, 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.

    ConsDepartmental 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Just a number

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOpportunity to progress, people are nice.

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good

    Consultant Maintenance Integrity (Former Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore variety work should be given

    Look after their people

    Project Engineer (Former Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsPetrofac 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.

    ConsLike 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.

    No concept of Quality Assurance at director level.

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

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

    ConsPromotion 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 Senior ManagementYou 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...

    Within Petrofac Facilities Management i have had no problems personally and found them very efficient.

    Production Technician (Current Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementWe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
