Pros

excellent benefits
Great people
Safety is priority

Cons

Management turns a blind eye with anyone who has a 'manager' in their title. Quick to believe that 'manager' means they know what they are doing. Very large segregratin between management and employees and no merging of the two. They treat the office as a ship, everyone has a rank and gives the respect per that rank.

Advice to Management

Please take a look at who you have leading your units.

    No opinion of CEO

    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

    I worked at Teekay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice sincere people to work with

    Cons

    Terrible communication within the company, the CEO does not know how to interact with his employees. Unfortunately CEO and management does not execute communication properly within the company. CEO does not have people skills and comes off as untrustworthy. Just check the employee surveys to confirm this.

    Advice to Management

    Losing great talent to the competition should be something to think about. What was once a world class company is now an average run of the mill organization.
