    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Great safety standards and decent contract period.

    I worked at Teekay full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the most international companies based in Vancouver, BC, with a truly global presence. Smart and driven management, who also seem to care about the well-being of staff. Interesting industry and market leader position within that industry. Great reputation within the industry.

    Cons

    Investor-driven rather than customer driven. Investors are the target customers, and the company is increasingly run like an investment fund rather than an operating company. Very much a banking perspective on business - which makes sense since the company is run by a banker. This is negative, but only really if you would rather be in a strong customer-focused operating environment.

    At / below market pay for Vancouver, but horribly under-paid on an international basis, which is where most of their competition is from. Limited upside for career progression - most younger employees have to leave for advancement, which is too bad since the rest of the company is solid.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how financially-driven you are. It may make sense from an investor standpoint, but is it the right way to run what is still, in essence, an operating company with customers? Look at how you move younger employees through the organization, and how many you've lost along the way to international firms that actually provide competitive pay. Aside from that, keep it up.
