One of the best
CIVIL/STRUCTURAL ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 October 2017
My personal experience with Worley was more than satisfactory. I can easily say that it was one of the best organizations I have ever been. You will have great resources and opportunities to sharpen your skills. I heard it may change from one location to other however I can ensure that Calgary and Edmonton offices are great to work with.

Home Office Support (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 October 2017
WPC runs like a dictatorship, with good snacks. If you're a junior level employee in the office, do not expect to receive any kind of mentorship or training formally or informally. This is a place for mid level employees, with little tolerance for mistakes.

Every Monday the whole home office staff meets together. This is a good place to learn public speaking in front of a room of up to 80 people. Management actively provides updates and information on upcoming projects. It's great to hear it from the horse's mouth and have a chance to represent yourself.

From what I've seen, you either dive in with the sharks and become a hammerhead yourself, or leave in tears. Reasonably fun place to work, extremely fast-paced, and tons of frustration due to lack of planning. Everyone has been completely overloaded with work since oil prices dropped, so expect to work for free and give up the odd weekend; No OT.
Pros
Company is leading the industry
Cons
unreasonable workload

Document Control Lead (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 September 2017
Would work there again, Was a great company to work for. Management was wonderful and couldn't ask for a better team to work with and for. Was sometimes long hours to get work done and meet deadlines but getting to work with such a great team was worth it in the end,

Fast Paced and ever changing environment
Location Information Management Director (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 August 2017
Just like any other servicing company in oil and gas, the boom and gloom of the company well depend on the price of oil. Management team kept trying to find ways to maintain the profit margin while also try to stay ahead of the curve. hardest part of the job is to work with the ever changing direction of the business, but the most enjoyable part is the experience in working with people to make those changes happen.

Boom and Burst Company Culture
Water Engineer (Former Employee) –  North Sydney31 July 2017
In a nutshell, when it is booming you are like a jewel. When it is about to burst, you are pretty much sold off like a liability. Constant restructuring is the corporate culture, change management very active. As for working colleagues they are good people to work with.
Pros
Good perks, good colleagues.
Cons
Prepare to get let go. Sickening culture to see your colleagues go and might be your turn.

Flex-able work life balance.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 July 2017
In the early years the company had a family like culture, but as the company grew this changed. It became very corporate driven. The company went through many reorganizations which made it difficult at times to feel connected. Flex-able with work life balance.

Was a great place to work before the recession
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON27 June 2017
This Australian company sought a Canadian presence and was a pleasant organization to work for in the Resources Sector. Unfortunately their Toronto branches never quite recovered from the shock of the 2008 recession and they eventually closed down operations.

Management was approachable and empathetic to the employee's situation. The workplace culture was friendly enough since the office was still relatively small (250 employees max) and people could get to know each other and collaborate.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. The hardest part of the job were the occasionally-challenging clients that made the engineering work/process difficult, but it was our job as consultants to manage that with respect and candidness.
Pros
RRSP matching, friendly culture, flex time
Cons
operations shut down due to recession

Instrumentation and Controls Engineering Student (Former Employee) –  Bull Arm, NL19 June 2017
WorleyParsons was an enjoyable work place with lots of knowledgeable and friendly co-workers. All of the staff had adequate room to work, which seems to be rare for a construction site, and the offices were kept very clean.

You must agree with everything they say
Sr.Project Controls Specialist (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 June 2017
There is no job security and it seems that the longer you are with them the more likely they are to let them go before someone you has been there for a shorter period of time. It costs them less in benefits.
Also if you disagree with anything they look at you as not being a "team player".
Pros
possible transfers to other branches
Cons
You must toe the company line

Great performance & accountability & senior leadership
Director, People & Culture (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB14 June 2017
Spent a year there in the midst of downsizing and market downturn, yet worked with some of the most mature leaders in the business. Too bad company leadership was not better prepared for global oil crisis to focus on critical skills contingencies.

Declining industry?
Design Draftsperson (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 June 2017
Lots of outsourcing these days. Do multinational EPC's need project offices in North America anymore? Can they even compete with firms giving away the engineering just to get the fabrication?
