its all to do with who you know
RPS (Former Employee), North SeaMarch 5, 2016
Pros: Good money, good training good stepping stone into the north sea
Cons: Bad management, paid of regular, just a number culture
Good stepping stone into the oil and gas industry. Stork has a culture of who you know rather than what you know. If your face fits and you have the right post code you should do well.

I received plenty of training whilst at stork and very good money but they have no loyalty to staff and have helped create the culture of been paid off after each trip rather than been held on the books

Sheet Metal Worker / Insulator (Current Employee), Offshore AberdeenDecember 18, 2015
Pros: 3 weeks off
Cons: 3 weeks offshore
I have worked for Stork for 13 years, but with the down turn in the price of oil we have had to take a pay cut and been moved to 3 on and 3 off rotas, the 3 weeks away are taking its toll on my home life so I feel it is time to look for something at home.

Proposals Engineer (Current Employee), AberdeenNovember 25, 2015
Pros: Development of communication and team working skills, confidence to present ideas and proposals to the Business Board, Brilliant colleagues
Cons: There are times when you would work very long hours
Being a Proposals Engineer means a typical day at work can be considered quite busy depending on the level of tenders/quotations that have come in.

This would mean juggling high volume work within restricted timescales without compromising on the quality of work. However this is made easier by excellent members of the team who would come together during periods of high workload and give each support and encouragement.

Excellent organisational, communication and time management skills are essential attributes and can take you a long way.

Even though at times it would be difficult to enjoy a work life balance, getting key results by winning tender's and opportunities for the company will make all hard-work and hours put in worth it.

I have enjoyed my experience while working at stork. It is a great place where i have met lots of wonderful people. This is the company where you could definitely develop and climb the career ladder.

Quality (Current Employee), Washington, MOMarch 3, 2015
Pros: the pay isn't to bad.
Cons: the owner thinks he is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
If their was ever a place that needed a Union this is it. The owner is an a..hole, and the General Manager is too. They keep cutting benefits, and they don't feel bad about it. Also, if you turn in your 2 weeks notice you are fired on the spot. Unless , you are a lazy piece of s..t, then he will offer you more money to stay. This place is horrible for having their little favorites, who do nothing, and are overpaid.

Good salary accompanied with substantial leave time. Poorly managed personnel.
Offshore Safety Advisor and Coach, UK (Current Employee), Dyce Aberdeen, UKNovember 17, 2014
Pros: excellent salary and time off
Cons: being away from home. job security.
I conduct regular site visits to ensure compliance with company and client policy and procures. Consulted on safety matters concerning health and well being, operations, engineering and construction.

Management of personnel is relatively poor with little to no communication from the office supporting the offshore workforce.

The hardest part for me is being away from home but the workforce lighten the load with good morale.

Stork was a great place to work (staff wise) I really got on with all my colleagues.
Scaffolder (Former Employee), UK seasOctober 8, 2013
Stork was an ad hoc position where the staff and culture was great. to be honest I enjoyed my time with Stork but the ad-hoc was proving to be a bit straining on my financial side of things and I needed to look elsewhere.
