    Pros

    Good pay, not bad benefit. Great environment, nice colleagues, and they have good training program. Good for new graduated.

    Cons

    During COVID-19, if people work, they deserve their pay. Employees should not pay (working for free) for the company.

    I worked at Worley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, good office location.

    Cons

    Management is the worst I've ever worked for, expected to work tons of overtime no matter the costs, terrible handling of issues during the pandemic, ancient computers and equipment, they do not value their employees.

    Former Employee - Process Engineer 

    I worked at Worley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offers opportunities to work on-site with big industry clients on interesting technical projects. Short and simple interview process depending on the position. Decent pay with a diverse benefits package. Favorable work/life balance.

    Cons

    Advertises itself as a major engineering firm but actually is a project company that only hires and retains employees so long as their clients have specific project needs. Not well diversified, so if their client ends the project and/or decides that they need to cut back on project staff, the employees likely have no recourse except to seek work elsewhere. Despite requiring those initially hired to receive a lengthy background check (which curiously did not include requesting any personal references), the company will cut staff at the drop of a hat without any severance. Alternately, they offer what they term a "company convenience leave of absence" prior to separation which normally is one month of unpaid notice. Like many project outfits, the company organization is relatively flat with limited training and minimal discretion among work assigned. An "Engineer V" may be assigned the same work as an "Engineer I". Depending on the client, projects often follow an arcane structure that is unnecessarily tedious to follow, although the company was still in process of consummating operations from Jacobs' ECR division at the time of my departure. I personally didn't take away much of experiential value, which was disappointing. Benefit options are fairly extensive but average and expensive.
