    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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    excellent benefits
    Great people
    Safety is priority

    Cons

    Management turns a blind eye with anyone who has a 'manager' in their title. Quick to believe that 'manager' means they know what they are doing. Very large segregratin between management and employees and no merging of the two. They treat the office as a ship, everyone has a rank and gives the respect per that rank.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a look at who you have leading your units.

    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits, good bonus and company pension plan. Fresh fruit weekly and office support staff are very helpful.

    Internal employees are not valued as much as externally recruited employees. No commitment to promotion from within. Lacking feedback and progression planning.

    A lot of overtime is expected. Not much work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Departmental heads to review internal employees' potential for growth and promotion within the company.

    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
