    I have been working at WorleyParsons (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, people and line managers. Pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Not enough work to stay employed permanently. Constant worry about being employed from one day to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Win more work, bid more work, diversify the sectors of the business in the office. Cross train personnel to be able to utilize them at positions that require an injection of personnel. That would eliminate outside hiring and layoff.

    Pros

    Not many.....Just good pay and benefits

    Cons

    No real training. My process manager on the project didn't care for employee development or mentoring. He just cared for the bottom line on project completion. This company like a lot of similar E&Cs have terrible process engineering managers - meaning they maybe good technically, but not good at people skills. Which is too bad, because they get the big bucks to not just manage technology but also to manage people effectively. Bottom line if you are a process engineer, do not work at the Bellaire Worleyparsons location.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people to process engineering management only if they really know how to manage people. And that means the managers should be good at identifying each employees individual skill sets and developing yet so the employee can contribute successfully. Don't try to make apple into an orange.

    Pros

    It was an awesome company to work for, great people, great clients, awesome benefits, good pay, all around fun atmosphere and flexible schedule with the 4-10s

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about themselves, they never get into trying to help the workers. There are times we are asked to work and not get paid for it. Worley started this whole "restructure" and has lost a lot of great workers bc their projects ended and instead of taking time to "clean up" Worley just laid them off or they feared for their job and they left. Everything is not being sent over seas which shows that they don't care about their own workers, never hear anything from management, never had a review, getting a hold of your department head is useless, no training .. Just fallen apart completely

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees HERE like they take care of your company, talk to them and take this one to do clean up instead of letting all your good workers walk out the door.

    Pros

    Pay is decent and people are great to work with. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and take on new projects.

    Cons

    Used to be a really great company to work for, but recent changes have depleted morale in the Houston offices and key talent across all business units has left to the competition.
