    I have been working at Teekay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Continous Salary, 3 Months Contract, Medical insurance, Priority pass these are some of the things that one would consider working for this company

    Cons

    Too involved in cost cutting, employs onboard are not provided with good quality equipment, too slow promotions.

    Advice to Management

    The company is still one of the best in the world, keep your employees happy and content and work for better and faster promotions

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

    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits, good bonus and company pension plan. Fresh fruit weekly and office support staff are very helpful.

    Cons

    Internal employees are not valued as much as externally recruited employees. No commitment to promotion from within. Lacking feedback and progression planning. A lot of overtime is expected. Not much work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Departmental heads to review internal employees' potential for growth and promotion within the company.

    I have been working at Teekay full-time

    Pros

    Great flexibility. Ability to re-arrange work schedule to balance work and life. Good benefits (although they could add a little more to be great). The company is once again in growth mode.

    Cons

    Not very many opportunities for advancement. Employees work hard and often work long hours. it seems that sometimes only the biggest and the best get recognized for the contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Current CEO doesn't take the time to get to know the people. Previous CEO knew everyones name

    Pros

    Vancouver location is great for anyone in HR, IT and Accounting fields

    Cons

    The company has restructured a few years ago, moving all operations and chartering functions to the regional offices. Therefore, not many opportunities for anyone pursuing a maritime career in Vancouver location.

    Advice to Management

    More self-awareness


  6. Teekay overhired and underpaid me. The job was not as described. Very disappointing.

    Pros

    Good employee programs - health benefit, fresh fruit, good vacation and flexben, nice offices. SOme great people and some very bright minds.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive, plastic people. Tough enviornment. People lie and toss others under the bus to create their own advancement. "Stars" are people who fit the clique. Roles are poorly defined, feedback is withheld and reviews are set to be the same for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Think about fit and what you are really trying to hire and should be paying before you make the move. If you try to hire the "Best" regardless of real needs, you add to turnover. Find out the real situation and get involved in what managers are doing. Do you know they are making the right decisions?

    Pros

    Structured compensation package, very transparent. Some staff are very nice and professional. Several people are very skilled.

    Cons

    Leadership is inconsistent. Direction/expectations depend 100% on the person to whom you report and it can change regularly. Many poeple were inappropriate or immature; managment tolerated this. Restructuring is common and change seems nonsensical. HR has no power and barely any influence. Opportunties are about who you are friends with not what your capabilities are. Individualism is not welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on your middle managment. Some of them are not upholding good values.
