    I worked at WorleyParsons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, competitive salary, continuing education

    Cons

    Management was too,insulated from the non management disciplines.

    Advice to Management

    Your communications with non management disciplines is a one way deal. In other words you don't listen to the help. Directives from afar with no feedback.

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

    Pros

    Family centered environment; one can easily balance work and life. Hardwork is resounded congruently as I did have (2) middle-of-fiscal-year salary adjustments as a result of outstanding work in projects.

    Cons

    Most colleagues have retired, forced to retire, reduced to part-timers, let-go or have left for another company. No cohesiveness in the top brass and upper management to land/award projects. Politics in workplace have been rampant and beyond tolerance. Recommended company but warned if you have thin skin for office politics, this is not a place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Isn't it long enough to realize that the recipe for success should be changed? The upper echelon in the management and project team need ratification from top to bottom. A lot of potential projects have been lost due to outright incapacities especially towards my last month of employment.

    I worked at WorleyParsons full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the staff implementing activities are knowledgeable and can talk through the work that needs to be completed. If they are not in a management position

    Cons

    Management staff is riddled with political bias and is prone to mistreating their employees and vendors. Yelling and condescending behavior with tantrums is rampant- very unhealthy environment

    Advice to Management

    Replace existing management and build your people back up - your customers won't be purchasing more and your people won't be producing top notch unless they are treated better. Make the workplace a good place to be!

    Pros

    The schedules can be flexible and management is understanding of your work hours and time off. Offer 4 weeks of vacation after 1 year.
