    I worked at Teekay full-time

    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.

    The organization is pretty stable and there are only limited opportunities to move up the corporate ladder.

    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.

    I have been working at Teekay full-time

    Pros

    Great flexibility. Ability to re-arrange work schedule to balance work and life.
    Good benefits (although they could add a little more to be great).
    The company is once again in growth mode.

    Cons

    Not very many opportunities for advancement.
    Employees work hard and often work long hours. it seems that sometimes only the biggest and the best get recognized for the contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Current CEO doesn't take the time to get to know the people. Previous CEO knew everyones name

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Structured compensation package, very transparent. Some staff are very nice and professional. Several people are very skilled.

    Cons

    Leadership is inconsistent. Direction/expectations depend 100% on the person to whom you report and it can change regularly. Many poeple were inappropriate or immature; managment tolerated this. Restructuring is common and change seems nonsensical. HR has no power and barely any influence. Opportunties are about who you are friends with not what your capabilities are. Individualism is not welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on your middle managment. Some of them are not upholding good values.

    I worked at Teekay full-time

    Pros

    opportunities to develop and stretch yourself

    Cons

    sometimes too many cooks in kitchen and getting things approved takes too many people

    Advice to Management

    continue to listen to and empower employees
