    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Petrofac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are quite acceptable.

    Cons

    Individuals who have very poor people skills and who have no business managing people are promoted to leadership positions within the company and seem to be rewarded based upon their proven ability to bully employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to purge the organization of abusive managers before the company finds itself in a hostile workplace lawsuit due to employee bullying and unequal treatment of employees which has occurred both within the home office and at client locations. Refer to the recent incident whereby a major client had to enlist an outside organizational health consultant at their expense to perform a study of the project team to... determine the reason for the excessively high project personnel turnover which resulted from personality clashes and bullying of the project team by a embedded Petrofac employee in a lead position.
