Good balance with business and personal life.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Royal Vopak full-time

ProsGood place to work for. You won't have to worry about being stressed all the time. Terminal pretty much runs on its own leaving you to have a well balanced life when you leave at the end of the day.

ConsHardly any advancement for new technology or designs. More business managing than engineering.

Good company to work for ... just not in Canada.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Hamilton, ON (Canada)

I worked at Royal Vopak full-time for more than a year

ProsWorldwide company with health benefits and good retirement plan

ConsManagers at this particular location did not follow the company's policies, procedures, culture and values, making it vitually impossible to accomplish anything. All career opportunities are blocked by middle management and senior management's lack of supervision is more than palpable. Office managers do not believe in work / personal life balance, resenting people that can do their job on time and do not want to linger after hours or attending social events after office hours.

People are easy to work with

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Royal Vopak

ProsPeople are easy to work with, and senior management communicates views and strategy, bringing a sense of belonging to the rest of the team.

ConsPreferential treatment provided to identified people within the team, lean structure makes it harder to climb the corporate structure.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more from local office, and not from other offices or headquarters. To ensure that talent is retained within the company.
