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?

Productive small town mentality
Environmental Technician/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Cold Lake, AB31 May 2017
I’m a former employee of the Cold Lake office. The company and job allowed me to pursue interests outside of work. It was never an issue to get a few days off here or there, if a personal emergency occurred. The local client kept us pretty busy, but opportunities to try out a different project would pop up.
Pros
Small town culture
Cons
That steep hill at the river valley during a freak snow storm

Better than its competitors
Quality Assurance Document Checker / Controller (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 May 2017
WorleyParsons is far better than its EPCM competitors. It truly values its employees, offering good wages and outstanding benefits, but carries a gigantic management team, which contributes negatively to the company's overhead and limits the chance of advancement.

The company's line of business is extremely risky, not offering any job security. But this is at least recognized by the management, who pays the employees well while there are projects.
Pros
Great work-life balance, pay and benefits. Treats employees with respect
Cons
No job security. Enjoy it while employed
