Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Westchester, IL – May 16, 2012
It was a fun but busy place to work at, the people made it worth coming in, the hardest part of my job was trying to connect with people on the opposite end of the world for meetings but I must say everyone in the company although were spread across the country were very helpful.
Dreaded coming into work everyday and ruined my days off if I ever thought about work
Technical (Former Employee), Edmonton – June 6, 2013
Pros: quitting time
Cons: every minute before quitting time
The overall place to work was ok but my manager was a complete control freak and micro manager who did not trust anyone and kissed butt to anyone higher in the chain of command. Complained to upper management and HR and nothing was done other than a slap on the wrist. Would be a good company but does nothing to improve the working environment of the – more... front line workers,so after many solid years of good service decided to walk away as they do not value the people that work for them and cater to the weak minded manipulative managers that blow smoke up their butt!! – less
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee), Calgary,AB – November 22, 2012
Pros: everyother friday off
Cons: slow work enviroment
WorleyParsons was a great opportunity for me. I left a secure career of 14 years for this advanced career opportunity. I had minimal training and was left on my own to learn the operation of my postion. I developed good relations with Venders and Carriers as well as staff on site. I am very good at tracking and ensure deliveries in a timely matter. – more... My role was to produce ship releases to start the shipping flow as well as track shipments from begiining to end. I enjoy the challenge and get great satisfaction when delivery is delivered within the required date. I worked very well with my co workers I pride my strength as a Team Player. The hardest part of the job was when it slowed down, I was used to working in an extremely stressful fast paced enviroment. – less

Projects (Former Employee), Canada – July 16, 2012
Pros: good company, good benefits, social clubs and activities outside of work
Cons: management doesn't deal with issues
I liked the Company but had issues with the Management. The office I worked for had a number of bad managers with numerous complaints against them that weren't dealt with. My manager was a mean and demeaning micro-manager with no leadership skills which Mgmt/HR recognized, but wouldn't do anything about. I was treated very poorly when I resigned after – more... lengthy years of service. Lots of promises of retention but company doesn't follow through. In particular offices there is trouble with nepotism and favourtism. – less
Administrative Assistant I (Current Employee), Houston, TX – June 10, 2013
Pros: benefits, salary, healthcare
Cons: certain managers, bad communication when managers ask for things
I run reports first thing in the morning and check emails; make sure no one needs a conference call created or meeting created; everyday i make sure no expenses need to be delivered to our Bellaire building that i take on Thursdays; check with project managers to see if they need reformatting done or if they need any administrative assistance in general. I – more... have learned a lot of new project controls work, such as running cost and revenue reports for multiple projects, aging reports, how to add tasks and fund new upcoming projects. Co-workers are great to work with, but when looking for managers, they need to find more experienced individuals, having to work under someone who is just now learning their roles is no fun. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know co-workers and spending a little bit of time talking with everyone and seeing how they like working here and if they are having any issues or concerns. – less
Dont Employ (Current Employee), World Wide – April 6, 2013
Cons: lie through there teeth
This company operates a don't employ list which is global, so don't go annoying any of your colleagues or management as you could land up on it and because they are linked with web based recruitment it also goes to companies that use the same recruitment search.
Independent, fast-paced and flexible workplace. Laxed management and not much direction.
Electrical CAD Technician (Current Employee), Reading, PA – March 15, 2013
Pros: in house cafeteria, flexible schedule, friendly atmosphere
Cons: love autocad but don't enjoy the work i do most of the time
I log onto my computer, review emails, and look over work I need to start for that day. Management is usually available via communicator but is usually visibly non-existent. There isn't much direction therefore you need to be in control and able to figure out things on my own. Engineers distribute the work to me and are usually available for questions. The – more... most difficult part of my day is being in one place. Although I love my job, sitting down for long periods can be very tiresome. What i enjoy mostly about my day is communicating with my co-workers. We all bond together like a family and help another when we know something they don't. Its very helpful being able to mesh ideas among a few people to come up with the best solution. It also helps having fellow CAD Techs in case theres a command we don't know. I've learned quite a bit more over the last two years because everybody has different ways of doing things. – less
