    Good working environment. Manager in place was pro-active, communicative, encouraging, a real leader.

    Contract was shortened due to lack of supervision from shore management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees input, they are on location and can give you the information you need to properly manage situations before it is too late to try to solve them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Teekay full-time for 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.
