    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    Multinational workforce & dynamic organisation due to the industry of the company. Many new avenues to further ones career in the shipping and offshore industry with the market leader.

    Too rigid as far as introduction of new comer´sto organisation goes. You are constantly watched. More like the management wants you to make an error rather than help you solve it.

    Pros

    Great office location, had some good time working there. The people at the office were very friendly and easy to get along.

    It's a big corporation, so lots of boring meetings and many levels of management above you. I often got in trouble for doing what I was told to do.

    Pros

    Professionally run company that attracts high caliber of employees. There is a great deal of understanding and support for employees when faced with any type of challenge that life may throw at you. Self-initiative is rewarded.

    Cons

    Over the years I have seen a fair amount of people leaving the company for other jobs and for various reasons. Many came back, others still think fondly of the company. This is a very solid employer.
