    I have been working at Teekay

    Pros

    Professionally run company that attracts high caliber of employees. There is a great deal of understanding and support for employees when faced with any type of challenge that life may throw at you. Self-initiative is rewarded.

    Cons

    Over the years I have seen a fair amount of people leaving the company for other jobs and for various reasons. Many came back, others still think fondly of the company. This is a very solid employer.

    Solid company and management, but run like an investment fund rather than an operating company

    I worked at Teekay full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the most international companies based in Vancouver, BC, with a truly global presence. Smart and driven management, who also seem to care about the well-being of staff. Interesting industry and market leader position within that industry. Great reputation within the industry.

    Cons

    Investor-driven rather than customer driven. Investors are the target customers, and the company is increasingly run like an investment fund rather than an operating company. Very much a banking perspective on business - which makes sense since the company is run by a banker. This is negative, but only really if you would rather be in a strong customer-focused operating environment.

    At / below market pay for Vancouver, but horribly under-paid on an international basis, which is where most of their competition is from. Limited upside for career progression - most younger employees have to leave for advancement, which is too bad since the rest of the company is solid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how financially-driven you are. It may make sense from an investor standpoint, but is it the right way to run what is still, in essence, an operating company with customers? Look at how you move younger employees through the organization, and how many you've lost along the way to international firms that actually provide competitive pay. Aside from that, keep it up.
